Yeah I'm waiting for the next generation carbine to be selected in a couple of years. Hope something good gets the nod.
The AK-5s are getting quite worn out so it's time to move on, and the AK-4s will be replaced as well as part of that process.

Those are pretty awkward in close quarters. Because the compartments are more or less linear, boarding pikes might actually make sense.

Getting through hatches with a boarding pike may be difficult.


The'd have to be built in, or segmented. You'd need two sets, too. One pointed forward and one pointed aft. :roll:

Pistols do seem to be the ideal took to fighting below decks. Handy, rapid fire, can carry plenty of ammunition etc.


I think that's about right. And knives for the close work.

Ka-Bar makes a bayonet for a pistol. It fits a picatinny rail. I thought it was one of the dumbest things I've ever seen.

They sell those at at least one of the local shops :roll:

I've seen a device that mounts a Glock (with bayonet of course) to a picatinny rail (think grenade launcher). Absolutely stupid and useless, but funny.

I was thinking more old school. I'll see your Buck Rogers ray gun and raise you wholesome .455" goodness.

That at least has a handle that lets you wield it as a knife. And when you have only one shot, the knife makes more sense than throwing the pistol in someone's face.

It perhaps displays my almost complete lack of knowledge about pistols, but I think having a bayonet on a pistol is quite possibly one of the coolest, and at the same time almost completely useless, things one can have on a pistol.

Rule of cool, and all.

I'll see your bayonet on a pistol for uselessness and raise you the gangbuster:
