deadcoyote, Thank you! I was a little scared to check this thread, but you have reaffirmed my thoughts on the pistol bayonette.
I have no idea as to whether or not the rail mount comes off of the handle. But I do think you have a great idea for wanting to use that as a pocket or belt carried full tang fixed SD blade.
I see no reason as to why you could not cut and grind the mount off, and with a little time, it could be done such that nobody would ever know the difference. It would just take a little time with the cutoff wheel, grinder and dremel. Food for thought.....
