what type of bayonet will fit on the 870 mag extension
maybe I can just make something

anyone know which bayonet will fit?
Im sure i can find some form of mountable bayonet lug also
nothing a machine shop and welder cant make

It's supposed to use regular M7 and M9 bayonets. But looking at that pic, you sure couldn't tell it.

hmmm apparently an m10 sorta fits
however I now have to find a bayonet lug and figure out some way to mount it
It has to be done in my eyes

There's one easy method, but as Remington found out, it isn't strong enough for serious bayonet work.

The early magazine extension was part of a military program, and the end of the extension had an extended cap that fits the mounting ring on a bayonet. (For some reason Remington never saw fit to change it, and current extensions still have it).

The mounting latch was attached to the bottom of the Remington barrel clamp.
The extension has a groove in the tube, through which the barrel clamp mounting screw passes.
This serves to prevent the clamp from moving forward under recoil OR when using the bayonet.
The groove also served to position the clamp in the right spot for the latch to engage the bayonet lock.

Here's what I did on request years ago.
I either made up a new latch lug, or cut one off a damaged M14 rifle flash hider and welded the latch to the bottom of the Remington barrel clamp.

This works, but as Remington found out, if you really use the bayonet with any force, the clamp just isn't strong enough to stand up.

The only way that really works is either an old style barrel shroud as used on the old military Winchester '97, or a Marine Corp type long clamp device that wraps around the barrel and the extension and offers enough reinforcement to take the stress.

Probably, the easiest method that will stand up, is to buy a steel barrel shroud and weld a reinforced section on the bottom with a latch lug on that.
The new shrouds have a clamp-like end that tightens around the barrel. These may interfere with an extension, so a new, longer front section would need to be added to wrap around the extension.

hmmm i just looked at the mossberg 590 with the bayonet lug
this might be more work than I anticipated
however I just spoke to Jason @ tacticalworks.ca
He custom made a bayonet setup which gave me some ideas and its all custom except for a ARMs
QD setup
I think its time to get me a sidearmor rail
which I think will work with some strength to some degree
after all, Do I really think Im going to be doing any serious bayonet work?
maybe if someone breaks into my house or only if the Umbrella Corporation floods our towns with zombie making gas
I just think it would look dandy with a nice bayonet or a tanto off the side
I will keep everyone posted as to my progress
hell everything else went off without a hitch

The rear is gone too.

But as you say, not needed.
