Hey there,

I'd like to get a bayonet adapter for my new M6A3 in 5.56x45. There's two diameter options and I'm lost.

One is .570 in diameter and the other one is .725 Which is the correct option for my rifle? :confused::confused:

I don't want to waste 20 bucks on the wrong one.
I don't plan on permanently clamping the adapter or always carrying around the bayonet. I would how ever, like to be able to attach one if necessary.

I don't believe the length will work out properly. Remember, it's a mid-length 16" barrel. The original A3s had a bayo-lug built into the front sight/gas block. If you had something sitting out in front of the existing gas block, it may end up over-shooting your FH.

Unless you've got the 18" M6A3, this won't work anyways.

But, your barrel diameter is .750, so you'll want the .725 adapter.

Be aware, this thing will look REALLY silly on your gun.
