FIX BAYONETS! What happens to your accuracy.
Though ammo is tight right now, I thought I'd try this. Always wondered what a bayonet does to POI.
Took my 1943 M1, its 1953 bayonet and some 1969 Lake City. I took up the prone position with sling.
At 100 yds, I shot 4" 5 rd grps witout bayonet and with. The grp with bayonet was 2" left of the one without.
Didn't try more range because the terrain didn't favor long, prone shots.
2" left is quite OK. 100 yds is about the range for "Fix Bayonets!"
