What Could Possibly Go Wrong? Perpendicular Pistol Bayonet Edition.

It’s not all SHOT Show coverage around here. We’ve still got time for the silliest in edged widgetry, and this highly questionable pistol bayonet currently tops the list. This picture says a thousand words, and several hundred of them are synonyms for “WHAT?”

Called the Manly Base Interchange System, this doohickey clips to the bottom of your handgun magazine (1911s, M9/M92, and .40 Glocks only) and lets you stab yourself in the leg bad guys who try to rush you when your pistol goes dry.

Once you run your pistol empty, however, you’ll have to keep it empty if you want to stick anybody with your Manly (pistol) Butt Bayonet. If you swap mags to turn your empty handgun into a loaded and functional handgun again, the bayonet falls out with your empty magazine. And probably into your leg or foot.

You can check this gadget out for yourself at http://www.manlyinnovations.com, but their hysterically-serious video has been pulled because they used a Warner Bros. song in their soundtrack without permission.

  1. Any time I see the words “pistol” and “bayonet” in the same sentence I’m already prepped for some weapons-grade stupidity. This widget surpassed those expectations by a country mile.

  2. If you’re recoil sensitive you can spike that thing into the shooting bench at the range and anchor your pistol in place. But yeah, next to the Japanese sword pistol thingy this is about the dumbest combination of gun and blade I’ve seem.

  3. “If you swap mags to turn your empty handgun into a loaded and functional handgun again, the bayonet falls out with your empty magazine.”
    Not a problem, I’ll just install one on ALL my magazines.

    • I’d love to see the blooper reel for their ‘how to carry your butt-spiked magazines’ video. Lots of bloody people in that one, but the ‘how to reload with another butt-spiked magazine’ vid probably looks like the next Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

  4. The mental image of someone dropping a mag and having it go right through the top of their boot is giving me seizures right now. Hilarious!

  5. There’s a new video on their site that includes some footage from the original, but the horribleness just doesn’t compare. The original had to be seen to be believed.
