    Who wouldn't want a 17" bayonet on a 20" barrel?
    Does anyone know where I can find the mount, a copy is more than OK.

    Watermelon terror device. Works great on pumpkins and a sack of oranges has no chance. You'll want one!

    Sarco had one that coast half as much as my 590. And Liberty is no more!

    I would figure the Model '97 re-pops that are floating around would be just the ticket.
    The VAST majority of these are new production Chinese pieces so don't believe most of the tools out there advertising them as *un-issued* or *GI* if they are less that 300 bucks.
    The re-pops are around 124-145.
    You will, however, need to remove your front bead to get the unit on your shotgun.

    Todd.

    A custom rat tail bayonet, maybe? Easy enough to fit, too. I have a period correct 1917 on my M97 trench gun and as ridiculous the combination looks, it has murdered a fair number of watermelons and pumpkins over the years. Pick one up with the bayonet, lift it in the air and fire. Don't forget to wear a raincoat and shooting glasses. :)

    Not a 1917, it’s a M7 3390D252-D47B-441C-9DFD-51FF2CBA5DCA.png

    Ah, that's easy. I want something ridiculous!
    Is that furniture as blond as it looks?

    The Mossberg 590 / 590A1 riot gun is designed to take a modern bayonet (M7 or M9). An M1917 bayonet won't fit.

    M1917 bayonets were made as recently as the Vietnam war, for use with Winchester M97 riot guns. These late-model M1917 bayonets have checkered plastic grips and Parkerized blades. They're rare and expensive.

    The cheapest M1917 bayonets (other than the reproductions) are probably the ones with British markings, made for the Pattern 14 rifles. These are identical to the ones with American markings. There are even some with the British markings struck out, and overstamped with American markings.

    You can expect to pay $225 for a good, original M1917 bayonet.

    Yes, when I sanded that Numrich used stock set the stain came off and the wood underneath is what you see.
