    I've got a stack of SKS spike bayonets and Mosin Nagant spike bayonets.

    Any good use for them other than storing them in a box?

    Roasting marshmallows and hot dogs? :neener:

    You might be able to put them on gun broker for a few dollars a piece or in lots of 5 or 10 or so.

    Spike bayonets ... good for "roasting marshmellows or hot dogs" I do agree.

    The bayonet for the US Carbine M1 was developed from a trench knife that was issued with the first carbines without a bayonet lug. To make the bayonet, they added a loop to go around the muzzle of the gun and a catch for the lug attached to a sleeve on the replacement barrel band. It was still a good trench knife, used to open cans, cut stakes for tent pegs and the usually uses for a blade type bayonet, more utility than just bayoneting.

    Beyonf bayoneting, spike bayonets are usefull for .... uh .... what are they useful for?

    Making complete a Mosin Nagant accessory kit sold without a bayonet?

    I would probably put them on ebay or something, you just reminded me of a box of mac90 accessories i've had for years. Low capacity mags, cleaning kits and rods, oil cans and bandoleers. I think ebay may be the answer for me.

    I remember back when the Norinco SKS was imported without a bayonet, and it was against the law to put one one it.

    There were buckets of SKS spike bayonets being sold at every gun show.
    They were called Tent Stakes!

    I use my Mosin bayonet as a screw driver and barrel band remover. As well as finger nail cleaner and for general poking activities.

    I use mine as a monopod in the field when shooting prone. Spike penetrates dirt to a comfy height real quick and easy.

    I have a few SKS Bayonets laying around.
    When SHTF, I plan to use some for Spear Heads and some for Pungi Sticks.

    I suppose a guy could attatch the spike bayonnet to a stout pole, making it into a spear. Suggested use ( only for the wild & crazy) would be to use it for hunting wild pigs from a three or four wheeler. LOL!

    They make pretty good spits for roasting in the field.
