Which rifle/bayonet combo? List your alternates if I didn't list them. I was just cleaning a No.4 MK.1 and thought about the heft and balance of the rifle and the teeny little spike bayonet. I think I shouldn't have sold the No. 1 MK. 3 with the long bayonet. I think I'll get another.



ETA: Sorry for no Mosin or P14/M1917 option. There are lots of contenders, the listed ones are just my favorites.

Garand, hands down.
Link Posted: 1/5/2012 6:36:53 PM EDT
m16, reason being I have a feeling after a few good blows a lot of those wood stocks will be a handful of splinters, weakest point on the m16 probably being the buffer-tube, and who cares if the hand-guards fall off.

Runner up M1 garand

Mosin gets my vote as well, and the poll is seriously lacking that as an option.
Link Posted: 1/5/2012 6:37:28 PM EDT
Your poll is full of fucking fail. Where is the 91/30 option?

Way to fail, Mr. Fail.

poll fail, most of us can only afford Mosins

Sorry for the ommission! A Mosin would be a fine choice too.

This is correct.

M14. Plenty of ammo in the magazine for shooting during the charge or in contact. Decent reach, though not as good as some. Heavy and solid for striking and parrying. Maybe actually too heavy but I am not a trained bayonet charge user and I AM an excellent shot so I'm biasing my choice in favor of shooting more than pugil stick style work.

An M16, because I'd be shooting people with it instead of trying to stick them with the pointy end like a fucking idiot when I'm carrying a perfectly good rifle.

Gew 98. Roughly the same length as a Mosin Nagant but with a knife/sword style bayonet.

That's assuming the OP meant an ammo-less rifle.

Springfield with the 16" bayonet (Lee-Enfield is fine as well). If you're just going to use it as a pike, you want to avoid a pistol grip on the stock (can be awkward and gets uncomfortable as well) and you want as much reach as you can handle, especially since thrusting should be your main way of attacking (cuts and butt strokes can be used, but are secondary, and spike bayonets are not as good for cuts). It's interesting looking at older bayonet manuals. Many different moves you can do depending on the circumstances. Some, like lunging out, can extend your reach considerably, but require strong arms and precision. Others allow you to engage up close here you would not normally be able to use the point including against a running opponent (such as shortening the stocks on the left and then thrusting). You have to use different techniques against swords, but a lot of the older manuals only state that they exist and don't actually describe them (and assume the instructor knows them). If you think you may end up engaging horsemen, especially if they have lances, you definitely want a weapon with reach.
