If I had to do a bayonet charge, I would rather bay-"o"-not do it.

Men back then (100 years ago) were much braver than today, charging across no-man's land with 5 bullets in your rifle, and a bayonet on the end of it, and then some of the officers just had swagger sticks. Hundreds of thousands (maybe millions)died that way. Bayonet charges against watercooled machine guns on both sides.
Some where in my stuff, I too have M1917 16 inch blade that is grafted to a AR bayonet. I bought it at a gunshow.
I have 4 or 5 differnt types of trenchguns that have the bayonet adapters for the M1917 bayonet. Truly a Mighty scary weapon to be lugging around.

Thanks from Butzbach

I still want a modified 16'' bayonet for both my M14's and my single mini-14. Why? Why not? I will probably use it about as much as I used my rifle grenade launchers and rifle grenade launcher sights.
One of these day I am going to pay a custom knife maker to make me a 16'' bayo for my M14's, and if not to expensive, one for my mini-14 too. Yes, it will be attached while I am in the woods hunting! You never know...

My grandfather was a trench sweeper in WW-1. Carried a Remington trench gun. I asked him one time if he jumped into a trench with that long assed bayonet attached. He said no, it made the shotgun too clumsy in a tight trench. He said that's what the steel butt plate was for. Quick stroke to the head while he was pumping the slide. -Lloyd

Do you have a pic of the whole rifle with the bayonet fixed?
