Bayonets

Bayonets were designed to give the close-quarters combatant a tactical edge with longer reach. Traditionally used on the end of a rifle, there were many designs adopted over the years. From the early, simple plug bayonet (which made it impossible to also fire your gun), to modern representations that no longer pose any hurdle in firing. Size also changed as one-on-one combat became less a part of a battle plan after WWI. From the size of short swords to more manageable combat knives which serve utilitarian purposes, the advent of newer, better firearms made has made them almost obsolete. Almost. Lee Enfields, M1 Garands, and AK 47’s, along with other famous guns, were issued a variant, and many are still in use today, making them highly sought-after collectibles. Although the fighting style has changed, the function and use of today’s bayonets as combat knives are still effective in the field and look intimidating on parade.

Today the bayonet is rarely used in one-on-one combat, thanks to the effectiveness of firearms. The complexity of using a bayonet and the low stopping power of a single bayonet thrust makes it impractical. In modern combat, it's more efficient to put an enemy down with technology and firearms than with a bayonet. Despite its limitations, the bayonet is still issued by many armies. Additionally, the bayonet is still used for controlling prisoners and as a weapon of self-defense, and for utilitarian purposes in camp. Some even claim that training with one teaches a valuable level of aggression on the battlefield.

Current bayonets are often multi-purpose knives, such as the US M9 bayonet, an efficient fighting knife, or the Soviet AKM bayonet, which is also a groundbreaking survival knife that can be used as a wire-cutter. Some bayonets can also be used as utility knives, bottle openers, or throwing knives. There is also the obvious financial benefit of issuing one multi-purpose bayonet/knife as opposed to multiple knives to confuse and burden today’s soldiers.

We feature bayonet replicas, genuine military surplus bayonets, german bayonets, British bayonets, army surplus bayonets for sale, and accessories like hard-to-find scabbards and frogs to carry them accurately.

Review of: M-1905 Springfield Bayonet

Great reproduction, however it does not fit the 1903 Springfield rifle it was designed for.

When I called customer service a very lovely you lady told me that the bayonet is fine, the rifle is the proplem. She told me that " 1903 is different" so it fits some but not others.

Nothing of course  could be further fro the truth. Every part of my rifle ( made is 1916) is interchangable with every other 1903 ever made.

Any suggestions ?

Review of: Italian WWII Carcano Folding Bayonet Knife

The screw fell out of the wood grip. When reinstalling the screw I noticed there were 2 screw holes side by side. Where they messed up making a hole, they were very close and the screw would not fit back in tight. It just keeps falling out. Poor craftsman’s ship. The blade wobbles around when closed and open as well. I had to superglue the screw into the hole. Just A crappy product. And the price is to high for what I got. I would like to get a different type of bayonet for another milsurp rifle I own, but now I’m kinda leery about getting burned again.

Review of: M-1905 Springfield Bayonet

This bayonet was a very exacting replica that came with the scabbard and ready to fix right out of the box. It compares extremely well to my authentic bayonet and appears as my original probably did fresh off the assembly line. I would highly recommend this bayonet to any collector interested in displaying an accurate piece of WWI equipment.
