    This seemed the most appropriate place to say that there is one rail accessory which doesn't seem to exist - a rail mounted sword or machete. Has anyone seen any available? Would anyone be interested in such accessories if they existed?

    An edged weapon that attaches along the axis of a rifle barrel? I think that's called a bayonet! :)

    The Finns used short-sword length bayonets on their M27s back in WWII. Not 'rail' mounted though. ****, I'd pay to see some yutz running through the Brown Wastes with a sword on his service rifle.

    Ha ha that's the ticket! That guy's ready for the zombie invasion.

    But a little closer to reality, I'm looking for something like an M1 Garande bayonet...

    I have a hard time imagining that the standard picatinny rail mounting system would withstand the stresses of slashing and hacking associated with machete/ sword use.
    Sounds like a great way to eff up a perfectly good rail.
    Of course, I am really only stating the obvious here...right?

    I have concluded the same thing. Yes, quite obvious.

    the same guy that built this would probably be interested.
