I think I'd look for a Norinco 1897 clone.

Everything on the m5 rock island will be in its original configuration, all I'm trying to do is add the heat shield of the 1897 so I can mount my 1917 bayonet
PS - I run into a storage problem; I was trying to purchase the m5 shotgun but I realise my gun safe is full !! So it's going to be a while before I even start this project ;(
