will never fit.

the bayonet lug is different now. It is basicaly the standard bayonet lug on any Nato rifle since the mid 1960's any bayonet designed before then will not work.

The usmc has a nice 8" bayonet that basicaly looks like an old K-bar. (Looks like this) you can buy one for around $120.00 brand new. Probably have to order it, not many places sell them in store.

what i posted was that there were M-7 bayonets made with a 17" blade to 'ape' the old style pre WW2 bayonets.
they were made for the ar/m16 family of rifles ...
i know that the other bayonets do not fit...
i am trying to find the 17" ar/m16 bayonet...
please to read with more care and comprehension...
the m-9's are junk and break easily even on sandbag drills...

Maybe your local fleamarket will have one,or maybe you can find one in the classified ads in the back of a comic book.

What is a /k/ member?Seriously though a flea market or one of them comic books would be the most likely place to find a uber psuedo sticker that big.

I'm not certain that those were a regular production item so much as a conversion.

You might want to get in touch with Mike Williamson (Occasionally lurking about the gunternets under the handle "MZMadMike".) I know he's successfully modified various baynets, including at least one wicked 20" saw-backed Swiss engineer's bayonet, to lock up on the M16 lugs.

Bayonets

There is one flea mkt. near me that you can find almost anything from swords,to knives, to bayonets and almost anything military related.Yes, there are lots of good ads in comic books.Sometimes the best things are in our own back yard,maybe under a chip. Good Luck. Ed
