Ok, I got a century ak74 super cheap but, it was either a cali or NY legal gun. No bayonet lug and the barrel nut was welded on. I live in a Missouri so we can have normal stuff on them. The barrel nut is gone lol.

Heres my question.

I want to mount an m16 bayonet on it (why? because I like our bayonets better and I'm a nerd) so I found the bayonet adapters for ar15/m16 A2 profile barrels. Can I

A; shim then braze or weld one in place?

B; are there adapters on the market for these conversions already?

C; Would a normal AK74 muzzle break be big enough around to support the bigger ring on the baynet itself?

D; Has anyone ever done this succesfully?

A) I don't see why not
B) I seriously doubt it, because
C) I think the muzzle device and front sight on an AK are much closer to each other than those on an AR
D) Not that I've ever heard of

Just duct tape it on there and be done with it. :)

Zip ties work too. :D

If you want to swap bayonets, don't use any of the current wimpy ones.

Look for a proper bayonet, like the one the Czechs made to go with the Mausers they sold to Iran.

Like this one, (random ebay link)

Nothing like 16" of old world craftsmanship in front of your muzzle...:D

In a pinch, it makes a fine cutlass.

Not to be a smart alec, but have you talked to your local gunsmith?
I know my local can tap and adapt AKs for M16/AR15 muzzle breaks... maybe he could make an adapter for a bayo or come up with a reasonably simple mounting system?
