    I was fiddling around with my Mosin M44, and was intrigued with the bayonet fixture. Specifically using the design to mount a supressor. From an operator's point of view (military or otherwise) would this sort of set-up work, and be useful? Obviously not on an M44. Would being able to quickly deploy and/or undeploy a supressor in this manner be beneficial?

    One obvious benefit would be the ability to quickly make the firearm more compact and manuverable in tight situations.

    No. The QD mounts work just fine. :)

    I'd be concerned about the geometry of the bayo lug in relation to the bore of the rifle, especially on an old gun. Baffle strikes are expensive.

    Alot of people consider seem to agree that being able to quickly mount/unmount a suppressor is useful - hence the existence of the various quick attachment methods that exist.

    ...a bayonet lug, though, might not work so well. I am not familiar with the geometry of the mounts on the rifle in question, but I kindof doubt that they will allow you to mount a suppressor and retain concentric within the couple hundredths of an inch commonly required.
