    Are they zeroed in with the bayonet in or out?

    Is this really hard to answer? Yes or No?

    Either. It doesnt matter how you zero it, the bayo has very little effect on the SKS.

    my limited understanding

    is that all rifles with bayonet should be fired WITHOUT the bayonet extended or in the case of those that seperate from the rifle (like mausers) removed.
    i don't think that it will nessacerily effect the "zero" but the purpose of haveing the bayo' extended/"fixed" is for hand to hand combat not while fireing.

    Which country? The Yugo bayonet clips on to a ring under the grenade launcher, but others i've seen have a ring that drops over the muzzle, like a Mosin.
    I've heard that the bayonet increases accuracy on Mosins (m44?) but I've never tried to prove it.

    The only rifle I know of that should be fired with the bayonet extended in order to achieve POI/POA convergence is the M44. See: http://theboxotruth.com/docs/edu27.htm

    There are likely others, but that's the only one I know of. I've never known it to make a difference with an SKS.

    wow

    ya know, the way ive always seen it is that if im out shooting, chances are im not going to need to stab someone. this thought then convinced me to remove the bayonets from both my SKS and my nagant. i think ill throw the one back on the nagant and give this a try. thanks for that bit of info TEX!!

    The SKS is typically shot with the bayonet folded in the closed position. Pretty much as others have said the M44 is about the only one shot with the bayonet opened and its various copies.

    Only the Mosin M-91, M-91/30, and M-44 rifles, and the French Lebel and Berthier rifles were meant to be fired with and sighted in for the bayonet fixed.

    All other rifles should shoot best with the bayonet removed or stowed/folded.

    If you ever need the bayonet extended while you shoot, then whatever minor affect it may have on the bullet impact point will be negligible, since the target will be rather close anyway.

    Mosins were meant to have the pigsticker mounted all the time, pretty much. Never had an M44 mighyt get one someday, had to sell the M38 and 91/30s, but they were TOUGH rifles.
    I shoot my Yugo SKS with pigsticker stowed in the travel position. It shoots decently with handloads.
