    lol that's why they have a "world" series with only them in it

    Rules around bayonet's do seem a bit odd considering you can walk into any mitre 10 or the like and walk out with a machete, axe or other pointy choppy stuff.

    Perhaps they make a rifle look too 'tactical' or are ' evil by nature' like a semi....

    Thanks for the informative reply @dogmatix (and others)
    I was just a little unsure on legalities etc with all the law changes lately . And as the majority of pics don't actually have the bayonet fixed in place I thought I might be missing something.
    I have now joined the bayonet owners club as it were and purchased an m7 bayonet for my 500 A1 shotty , cause I can . Slowly turning it into a trench gun replica . Now have to find wood stock and corn cobb to replace the plastic items .
    I have also been considering trying to pick up a cheap older military style rifle I can perhaps restore ,as I would like a project gun , and will now try and find something bayonet ready .
    Love those in your pics to dogmatix .... very nice .

    The law blocking them from normal import change was one of Helen Clark's Governments " I want to get a job in the UN" actions. SO, naturally odd.

    That is a bad idea. Leverage is against you, and with the momentum of an angry charging pig means you could be liberated of your rifle. If your stab didn't kill it instantly, the sow would be even more pissed off. If you are really unlucky, your fingers and wrist could be the worse for wear too.
