Maybe someone can clarify or correct me on this, but removing it may make it harder to shoot (accurately).

My understanding is that they were designed to be fired with the bayonet on there, and removing it can mess up harmonics or some such, ruining your grouping. In fact, some m44s have been known to group better with the bayonet extended.

This could just be all an urban myth, too, as I don't know if there are any solid scientific comparisons out there. That being said, it's extraordinarily difficult to remove, and probably isn't worth it. Unless you have a disability that prevents usage of the rifle with the bayonet on, I'd recommend you do as the Soviets did; get used to it.
