On a barrel so short, would it be a practical to add a bayonet to it?
Link Posted: 10/17/2008 8:25:49 AM EST
Sure. The 14.5-inch barrel is a perfect fit. If you add one of the extended flash hiders such as the 5.5-inch CAR style to a 11.5-inch barrel the bayonet will work fine too.

I use my UZI bayonet on my UZI SMG all the time. It really helps keep the paper targets from rushing me while I reload

I don't know about a 10.5, but on a carbine length it seems logical. IMO, it would be perfect in a katrina situation where you mite be held up in a room trying to keep marauders (sp) at bay.

A knife is a great tool that everyone should carry all the time.
Having it able to be mounted on a rifle makes it a better tool.
Plus it will look cool

WTF a bayonet??? What are you going to do with it? Open your mail??? Spend your money on ammo and range time to learn how to shoot. Do you even own an AR????? Or any firearm for that matter???

Fucking commie. What do you think he is going to do with it? Fix bayonet and do a drive by. SBR with bayo is the ULTIMATE in home defense.

ETA: can you tell me one AMERICAN military rifle that is a civilian collectible/ favorite that you can NOT attach a bayo to?

Why because you summarily dismissed a question about bayonets and were called out?
It works on a 14.5 but you would have to have NFA toys or be USGI to know that. We did have a member here cut an m7 to fit a 10.5 in.

You just got hit for your reply, no battle has ensued.

It doesn't sound like the OP was asking about practicality relating to day-to-day shooting.

If so he would've asked about installing a bayonet in any rifle and not just an SBR.
Maybe he already has a bayonet on another rifle and is getting an SBR. I'm just guessing.

Seems like I have added more than you.
Link Posted: 10/17/2008 3:12:27 PM EST
The 14.5" is made for mounting a bayonet. The 10.5" would require a special bayonet.

As for the rest of you- stop.

I've been interested in the shortened bayonet for my 11.5 SBR.

I did a "bayonet" search on the AR15 section and found 158 threads in 2 years.
I'm with you.....Looks like a lot of people interested in the subject.

Been a long time since fixed bayonets were actually used in war. As for it's usefulness, sure, it can be useful. I want bayonet lugs on all my rifles that have the ability. Not too long ago they were illegal. The 10.5" would be nice but the cut down bayos look kind of fucked up to me. My 14.5 looks perfect with it.
And to hannism, the OP, please ignore the stupid comments.

I think I have somewhere around 2-dozen M9 Bayonets (I have not counted in a long time so I could have more then 3-dozen as they stack deep) and like everything else they are a tool. I have an M9 Bayonet under the seat of my truck and I have used it tp dispatch at least two deer that were kit by cars. I also use it as a camp knife as it can chop wood to get a fire started and all kinds of uses.

They are not the perfect knife, but they are plenty good to do a lot of stuff. If I have to bug in or bug out you can bet there will be an M9 attached to my ARs. I do have the bayonet for the UZI too but that really is an impractical weapon but what EBR owner would not want a bayonet for their machinegun? I have bayonets for my FALs and AKs too.

Bayonets may have limited use in the real world but damn if I will be without one and if you look at my site from the 2nd post you may learn there are a TON of different M9 Bayonet varients that makes them fun to collect too!

i might not have a paper target rush me but in my brd soul i feel i need one. my next ar will be a 14.5 w/per attached flash hider so it is settled. i will get one. thank you for talking me into it. i just might get to take a core sample in the event someone came uninvited into my home. and that is a good enough point to me. to the op, not pointless if you like it or think you need it.

Fk it!
I'm buying a bunch of bayonets at the gun show tomorrow...I'll use masking tape to install them on my rifles that lack bayonet lugs or that won't fit.
Bayonets have very sharp "points"...thus are not "pointless".
Sorry....after these many drinks it's hard to stay in topic.

There is one for the CZ SP01/P01 and I have both guns. I should get that one too.

Actually, I own several firearms.

Once I get a gunsmith to perm-attach a Yankee Hill Phantom flash suppressor to my 14.5 inch barrel, then I will have an AR15. After that's done, I'll be building an AR15 for my wife.

I also have a Mossberg 590, which has a bayonet mount. I have a Glock 19 and a Taurus M85.

In the past, I've also owned a Makarov, WASR10, SKS and Mosin Nagant M44.

For learning how to shoot, I was an expert marksman in the Air Force. I do not have any combat training or have I even been near a combat zone. Aside from shooting the AR15 in the service, I don't really know much about it, like cleaning, etc. I'm a novice when it comes to the AR15.

However, I am going to mount a bayonet on my Mossberg 590 for home defense. The question about putting one on a 14.5" or shorter barrel was a theoretical question. Would I put a bayonet on it? Perhaps if SHTF, then yes, I would. But, for shooting at the range, no.

I have a bayonet mounted on my HD rifle 24/7. And it's a 16" w/carbine gas system, so it looks extra stupid. Perhaps you'd like to offer your expert opinion on my audacious choice as well?



Link Posted: 10/17/2008 6:07:54 PM EST
One thing I like to remember is some guns are hobby guns some are tools and some fall in the middle. Alot of the fun with military weapons is all the other stuff that comes with them. Sometimes life is more then building an ammo fort Hey with some guns you need the bayonete. Mosins do not shoot point of aim without them
also who needs a gun rag with one just stick the bayonet into the ground like a pitch fork

Well, if it's like all the bayonets I've seen, it would have at least one point.

A point-less bayonet would be pretty... useless.

Trolling a tech forum is highly frowned upon. Consider yourself frowned upon.

The best reason for affixing a bayonet is it makes liberals and hippies and Diane Feinstein cry.
