Anyone know if there is such a thing, if there could be one made, and if the gun is up to the physical abuse of a Bayonet with a 16" pencil barrel?

You could probably rig something up, but to be honest just use an entrenching tool. If you're out of ammo and they are that close the spade will take off heads.

I was in my local shop the other day and saw a bayonet and mount for Glock pistols. I wonder how you holster them ???

MadDog :duh:

The Bayonet adapter from DPMS works great on an XCR ,it also sits far enough back that it looks like it is just part of the rifle.

Once when I was deployed I asked our Brigade armourer if he would be willing to affix a bayonet lug on one of the SAW barrels..... He agreed! But then my 1st Srgt found out and said if I did that he would beat me to death with it..... No matter how I tried to convince him of how cool it would be the story always seemed to end with me getting beaten with my own SAW.

I still think a SAW w/ bayonet would be bad ass.....

Funny story... We were talking about bayonets and the XCR a while back... and one of the guys suggested a spring-loaded bayonet inside a stock. Everyone thought it was a great idea until I brought up the possible issue of an unexpected deployment while firing. ;D

Back in the early testing of the L85 pre-A1 we found a few issues. One was the stamped reciever would fail around the recoil assmbly pin and when shooting the assembly would come backwards and go clean through your shoulder.

Here are some more pics of my XCR with a bayonet on it. This time I put the bayonet on TOP of the barrel. Also I took a few pic's looking down the sight to show that it does not interfere with sight picture too bad. (Note: if it looks like I the life of a single man, that is because I am one. Need girlfriend/wife were can I get one? She must like guns, and trains, on top of cooking, cleaning and all that other stuff. And yes I can take some of that woman stuff as well.) The sight is a Trijicon Reflex 6.5 MOA (RX01-23) w/ polarizing filter (RX20). M9 bayonet.

I like the feel of the stock. The length is just right for me. It's in the middle. Also that it is made out of Aluminum (not plastic) and the foam cover over the tube adds comfort to it (also no hot or cold tube to touch with the cheek (heat is summer & cold in winter). I have the 1/2 inch rubber butt pad, (one inch also avail.) Another bonus is that when folded it does not interfere with any of the controls, (like the mag release button). I find the rifle has very good balance even when folded. I have not tried shooting it folded. I will next time.

I am not a benchrest shooter. I just look for practical accuracy. And the rifle is very accurate with the bayonet lug on. I will also see how well she is with the bayonet on. I will have more by Friday the 08-08-2008.

I bought a Bayonet for a Cetme and but a steel bushing in the hole ,then mounted the lug on my gas block on my M96.
A Cetme Bayonet is what a bayonet should look like.
I cant figure out why Bayonets just keep getting shorter ,some PC thing i guess.

Hi JB,

What size attachment did you get and which barrel do you have for your XCR? Thanks.

Crashy

I have the pencil barrel (thin profile), and the lugs I got from DPMS. I have the regular on (Model: BL-LUG) my rifle in the photo's, and one for HBAR's (Model: BL-LUG-H)
Both can be found here http://dpmsinc.com/store/?cat=1467 :D

Girlfriend Hunting

I've been a Marine for eight years, and in Law Enforcement for over twenty, and having gone through one wife and a few girlfriends I'd recommend the following;

1) Infiltrating Strong-holds, i.e. go, and do things that women like to do, manicure, pedicure, museums and especially dancing. I know you're wondering about the manicure and pedicure, if "The Terminator" gets a pedicure, why shouldn't I? And who doesn't want to live like Arnold. I'd also recommend Clint Eastwood's example as Gunny Highway in "Heart Break Ridge."

I don't know very many women who don't like to dance. What type of girl are you hunting for? Country girls do country things, horse back riding, C&W music and dancing. Latinas, salsa dancing. Techno clubs, church dances, believe are not, girls are everywhere. In regards to the clubbing front, get a wing man so you're not some desperate guy sitting by himself. Better yet, take a girl who is a friend. Tell her your looking for a girlfriend. But take it easy and be cool, men and women can smell desperation. Just relax and dance. Women friends make excellent "wing men." Please see the "Sun Screen" lyrics at the bottom.

3) Clean yourself up. Most really hot women, don't care too much for slobs. Take a bath, get a haircut, clean the veggies out of your teeth. Smile, girls like guys who smile and are up beat. "How are you doing?" she says. "Fantastic!" you reply. Being up beat is infectious

4) Practice dating. Find a woman who is a friend and hangout practicing your skills. Practice your conversation skills, particularly current events. Avoid religion and politics, unless you can agree to disagree. Learn a foriegn language. I've been very fortunate to meet some very attractive women during class.

5) Get out of your comfort zone. If the only thing you like to do is go to the range and shoot with your buddies, guess what, you won't meet very many women.

I did something once that was an honest to goodness chick magnet. I was taking an art appreciation class at my local community college, lots of nice girls in class. Then at the end of the semester we were to create some type of art project, I decided to do a landscape in pencil. I took it to a Starbucks, and viola, the girls could not keep thier eyes off it. But I'll warn you, some of the gay guys couldn't keep thier eyes off it either. Either way, smile, be polite, and to the girls, be friendly.

Save going to the range until the third or fourth date. And by all means, please be a good shot. Yes I've taken girls to the range and nothing impresses more than demonstrating that you know how to do something a lot better than most. Nothing says I'm sexier than a one hole five round group at 10 yards with a pistol, she will be watching you. Another good example is "Thief of Hearts" 1984. The guy takes the girl to the range, nothing like a chick flick with guns. Another one would be "Purple Hearts" Cheryl Ladd, Ken Wahl and R. Lee Ermy. Another excellent war/chick flick, great date movie.

I know this does not quite fit into the XCR forum but, as you stated "Need girlfriend/wife were can I get one?" Oh and by the way, instead of looking for someone to clean up after you, I'd recommend hiring a maid. Who knows, you might like her!

Wear Sunscreen by Mary Schmich - Chicago Tribune (1999 Single by Baz Lurhmann)

Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of ’97
Wear sunscreen
If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be
it. The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by
scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable
than my own meandering
experience…I will dispense this advice now.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not
understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded.
But trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and
recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before
you and how fabulous you really looked….You’re not as fat as you
imagine.

Don’t worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as
effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing
bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that
never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm
on some idle Tuesday.

Do one thing everyday that scares you

Sing

Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, don’t put up with
people who are reckless with yours.

Floss

Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes
you’re behind…the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with
yourself.

Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you
succeed in doing this, tell me how.

Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.

Stretch

Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your
life…the most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they
wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year
olds I know still don’t.

Get plenty of calcium.

Be kind to your knees, you’ll miss them when they’re gone.

Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll have children,maybe
you won’t, maybe you’ll divorce at 40, maybe you’ll dance the funky
chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary…what ever you do, don’t
congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either – your
choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s. Enjoy your body,
use it every way you can…don’t be afraid of it, or what other people
think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever
own..

Dance…even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.

Read the directions, even if you don’t follow them.

Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.

Get to know your parents, you never know when they’ll be gone for
good.

Be nice to your siblings; they are the best link to your past and the
people most likely to stick with you in the future.

Understand that friends come and go,but for the precious few you
should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and
lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you
knew when you were young.

Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard; live
in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.

Travel.

Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will
philander, you too will get old, and when you do you’ll fantasize
that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were
noble and children respected their elders.

Respect your elders.

Don’t expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund,
maybe you have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one
might run out.

Don’t mess too much with your hair, or by the time you're 40, it will
look 85.

Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who
supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of
fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the
ugly parts and recycling it for more than
it’s worth.

But trust me on the sunscreen…
