The Pindad M7 is a very rough lower quality bayonet almost like a cheap Chinese toy. Light, inferior steel. However recently their export bayonets seem to be of an acceptable standard. Edits to add. The few Pindads I have were sourced from a TNI stash from East Timor early 2000s. I have an export M7 which was outsourced few years ago. A vast improvement on bayonet quality, even the scabbard which is now on par with FN, similar in construction now. Robust, sturdy and a frog that is made of a much more better material than the 25 yrs old Pindad M7's.

Also, if you are in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts I believe you'd need to ship that rifle through a dealer. I'm sure others will correct me if I am incorrect..
As a former MA resident, it really depends on the FFL. Some FFLs who don't speak "pre-ban" well shriek in horror with such transactions of black rifles. They are very busy churning out sales of MA compliant Sig 365 sales. There are FFLs who do accept shipments from individuals with a copy of their driver's license. I've sold a number of pre-bans (Valmet, .308 Galil, Polytech underfolder, old bushmaster ARs) at a very hefty profit through a few dealers. People search Pre-Ban as a term on GB all day from MA. Lots of drama with FFLs though....

Good example of the Chaos and foolishness of the state:


Good luck.

Picture 20 shows a lot of wear/brass kisses on the charging handle channel cover. It definitely looks fired in that picture. Still a nice rifle though.

If you are looking for an opinion on price in my humble view it's probably in the 5300-5800 range in today's market based on what I have seen in recent private and GB sales. It's got some neat extras but it's definitely used.

It's easy to see prices from past auctions and see them in the 6-7k+ range but those are really not a great indicator of the norm as an individual seller. Plus any auction house is going to take a cut of the sale price/charge a fee. If you feel it's worth more than 6k don't be surprised if it sits for a while.
