Why are they illegal?

If someone had a gun with a bayonet on it, my last worry would be the bayonet.

It's like banning firecrackers because you're afraid of dynamite.

I agree with ^

OP, please show penal code that's making you think bayonets are not legal.

I thought you couldn't have an SKS with a bayonet lug or any gun that can attach a bayonet.

So, you can? they're legal?

I didnt know so I put a "?" on the title. :)

I've bought an SKS and an M44 in California; both have attached bayonets. Perfectly legal.

The ban on bayonet lugs that I know of was part of the now dead Federal Assault Weapon Ban. There was never a California ban on bayonet lugs.

Also, though I don't own an SKS, I think it's the grenade launcher muzzle device that's not legal here. I've seen plenty of them with bayonets however. Look through the photos in the rifle gallery here and I'll bet most of the ARs, AKs, and many others have bayonet lugs.

Prohibition on bayonet lug was a federal ordinance that ended when the Federal Assault Weapon Ban sunset a few years back.

It wasn't illegal in and of itself....it just counted as an "evil feature"

didn't think they'd be banned if I've seen 'em sold everywhere, including big5

Check the flow chart guys, then proceed to buy a bayonet for each one of your firearms that needs one :D

Shame I managed to pick up an AK without a bayonet lug :(

If bayonet's are illegal Big 5 is screwed. I was there today and they had at least 5.

Bayonets are good for the environment, don't you remember the saying blood and guts make the grass grow green?

This may be my mistake, but aren't most bayonets double edge sharpened and is there a law against dirks/daggers in this state?

Only asking for clarification here....

Dirks and Daggers are only an issue when they are concealed on your person. Ther is no prohibition of double edged weapons.

Bayonets illegal? No way!

I had this video taken on Mother's Day. Notice the gigantic cruciform bayonet sitting there, ready to stick the nearest pig in a heartbeat.
