Why a bayonet? ... I know, I know, why not a bayonet. But seriously, my thinking of having a bayonet in a real SHTF scenario if I run out of ammo or the attacker gets close enough to get the pig stick. I feel that the mounting is probably weak and will not hold up to real situational pick sticking and maybe knife twisting if needed. ( I watch a lot of movies). Video after video n YT I see how easily the bayonet is placed and removed. You may stick the attacker well but I feel the he can take the bayonet right off the rifle and may have a chance to use it on me. What say you?
