    1st. M96 bayonet. These could be found from any number of vendors not long ago new for $24 but now a minty one without frog can be $75+.

    I fear we are going to use the British model and ban these soon for no reason.

    I'll play. Old school RIA circa 1910 and New school M9 circa 2013. Both seem to be equally effective on Zombies!

    Unissued 1944 Australian. I have the rife but we will leave it out. That is a lovely '41.

    The bayonet is stamped "Australia" on one of the grip scales. Makes a nice little package.

    Funny how much "ufHIX bayonets actually sounds like "empTEE bladder".

    1918 Remington

    Blade is excellent but the scabbard took all the wear. Yes I do have the 1918 Remington rifle.

    No pics, but a Mosin Nagant 91/30 and an original German "butcher blade", no scabbard unfortunately.

    Sometimes I get the feeling that these bayonets were conceived in much the same way that the GAU-8 Avenger was; that much how the A-10 Warthog was built around the gun, these rifles were made for the bayonet. So in short, those aren't rifles with bayonets on them, those are bayonets with a rifle attachment. ;) Might as well be fighting with pikes...

    Robert's and highpower's guns strike a wonderful chord... :)

    The Mosin Nagant was designed to be used with the bayonet on full time. Literally did not come issued with a sheath.

    Against a man armed with one of those, would you like to fight him with an AR and no bullets? Was one of the problems with riflemen in the Revolutionary War. No bayonets, twice the reload time, the Brits would steamroll them with them long spikes.

    I have a M1 Korean (larger release button) bayonet around here somewhere. Friend of mine found it new and sold a pair to me for $20. Now I just need an M1 to go with it.

    Here's a 1869 Werder with correct bayonet:

    And a real DEMAG crank-handle fighting-knife bayonet combo blade.

    the order that I and every other combat grunt feared was "fix bayonets"......only came down twice but the fear, expectation that comes with that still gives me nightmares 40 years later.

    The three bayonets I have rifles for are in this picture. I have an East German AK47 bayonet as well, but no rifle for it.

    “ I have been plodding through five volume “Reports of (American) military observers in Manchuria” during the 1904-05 Russo-Japanese war. It is a very lengthy read I downloaded for free to my Kindle from: https://archive.org/details/reportsmilitary00stafgoog and http://digital.library.yale.edu/cdm/compoundobject/collection/rebooks/id/68663/rec/19

    The observers delve extensively into the use of the bayonet by both antagonists. The bayonet was not a show accessory and saw much use, especially so during night attacks when combat was very up close and personal. The Russian’s always had the bayonet attached to their rifles and there were no scabbards to be seen.

    Thanks for the links. If you think about it, not much else you can really see to use in the dark, pre-night vision.

    What ?!? You mean there are rifles without bayonets ? :D

    [​IMG]

    My most special one is this Finnish bayonet for the M39, about 10.000 made and today it’s about as valuable as the matching rifle.

    Some of those bayonets more closely fit the description of "sword".

    Wait, the M1 Garand is slightly shorter than the Yugoslavian M59/66? Wow.

    The M1 Garand is about the only WWII rifle I have zero experience with. I never really planned on purchasing one as I'm no fan of loooong rifles (despite having quite a few of them).

    Now I think I want one. If I can find one in nice shape for $1200, I think that will be my next C&R addition.
