Between the Ontario okc3s, the M9, and the old surplus M7, which one would you choose and why?

For a rifle length gas system? I always wondered how someone is supposed to put a bayonet on your typical 16" carbine.

The steel used for bayonets is generally kind of crappy, so if you're planning on using it as a bushcraft style knife I don't think I'd go that direction. If you plan on actually mounting it on something I don't think it really matters. They're all pointy. I heard the Ontario holds up well.

A bayonet doesnt work on a 16" carbine gas system, but does work on a 16" middy and 20" rifle as well as some mossberg 590s.

But, no, I dont plan on this being a user knife, I have much better options.

Truth be told, I only want one to have a sharp pointy thing on the front of the shotgun.

Am I really the only member of the "stabbing things with a firearm" fan club?

Ordered a M7, because I found one for $43 shipped.

I have my Ontario that I had in Iraq. It's a beast of a knife. It came sharp and it's made to take a serious beating without breaking. The case it comes with is a hard plastic type with MOLLE straps on it so that it can be carried strapped to anything. It makes a great survival knife and IMO, it's well worth the $120 or whatever they cost.
