Bayonets look cool on shotguns,but....

Check your Zero.

Mount bayonet.

Pitchfork something like a hay bale.

You have had bayonet training,right?

Recheck Zero.


The barrel metal on shotguns is too thin to withstand the forces generated by using a bayonet as it is intended to be used. Same thing happened in Nam with the early M-16s with much thicker barrel walls.

If it's strictly for looks, have at it. But utility's very limited....
