Sure, it’s morning on the first day of SHOT Show 2018 and I’ve barely seen anything yet. No matter. The Rapid Deployment Bayonet from Paper City Firearms is the most ridiculous thing here. Probably. I’ve got $5 on it. T&E sample requested.

    • Dude, this product is perfect for you!
      It has a rail so you can mount your light right next to your automatic bayonet. Best of both worlds!

      • It is not an automatic, the blade only deploys once per extension of the, well, whatever it is. The point is, if you call it automatic, you risk polarizing the conversation, and drumming up angst against semi-auto retractable bayonets, when full-auto retractable bayonets are the real problem.

    • You just made me think… you know that can thrower from X-products… it would be cool shortened and mounted like an M203.

      • International Conference of Monster Hunting Professionals.

        Check out the Monster Hunter International series by Larry Correia. Great action and great if you’re into guns, because Larry actually knows guns, so the gunplay is not idiotic like in a lot of fiction.

        • Thank you! I was trying to figure why the Illinois children’s mental health partnership would be into automatic bayonets.

        • “I was trying to figure why the Illinois children’s mental health partnership would be into automatic bayonets.

          …See, I thought giving bayonets to a bunch of insane kids was an idea that kind of sells itself.

      • Untill the barrel brakes, made it 150 rounds and the lug broke off the bottom of it. To many small 9mm for under $300. I sent it in to be fixed and sold it. Still hated to do the second part, but needed the money. The first person who wanted to buy it was a armor car guard who wanted it as a BUG,

    • No. No, it’s not. The unrifled short barreled non-rifle is way more ridiculous.

      This thing, I want. If it has a spring and a button to deploy it like a switchblade.

      • The 21st century Gyrojet isn’t ridiculous. In 21 years, when they’ve been out of production for 20 years, collectors will be climbing over their own mothers for an unfired Reformation with a case of finned ammo.

        • I would also say that for those on a time/money budget it fits the role of a home defense SBR without the wait or the tax stamp. It doesn’t have to be very accurate to take people down effectively inside your house. Unless you live a mansion of course…

          [Comment depends on MSRP/street price obviously.]

        • The Reformation is a joke. AR pistols serve the role it is intended for far more effectively. I can shoot my pistols much better than the 4-5 MOA Franklin is advertising. Oh, but you can get special ammo… supposedly… at some point. Yeah. No thank you.

        • Gyrojet… WOW! I knew the inventor of it back when I was a kid in California. I helped him with his old memorabilia, blueprints, pictures of Ronald Reagan, etc… and we printed up some info for it. He showed me one of the pistols once with 25 year old ammunition. Never fired it as even he wasn’t sure if it was safe to do so. He wanted to resurrect the brand and obviously didn’t get too much traction in doing so. This must have been 1991’ish. Very cool old guy and naturally eccentric.

    • At $2000 and a max range of 50 yards, the reformation might be the most ridiculous product I’ve seen in the last 20 years. Yes, there have been some ridiculous things offered, but when considering price alone, everything else just pales in comparison. It’s compounded by the fact that extremely high quality, accurate and reliable AR pistols with braces are available, at a third of the cost with 10 times the range are widely available.

  1. Some maker has his eyes on his slice of the American dream. I doesn’t matter how ridiculous or impractical an item is. All that matters is if people will buy the thing and it’s marketable. But wait there’s more: If you call in the next 6 minutes (insert idiotic clock timer) we’ll include an LED blade light so you can see what your stabbing in the dark FREE, just pay separate processing and handling. But wait, we’re not done: If you’re one of the first 50 callers, we’ll include this handy blade sheath, a $60.00 dollar value, at no extra charge! So call now. Offer not available in stores.

    • Replace the blade with a dildo and *then* fire it with a bump-stock.

      Video yourself firing it while *snickering* maniacally…

  2. It’s obvious all the gun grabber politicians are now going to have to re-define the meaning of “bayonet lug” as a factor in “assault weapon” bans.

  3. It is regrettably not a chain saw although it probably weighs about as much.

    That said, if they really wanted to be innovative they would have integrated it into the hand guard.

  4. I so want. Also what happened to Geisel’s rail bayonet adaptor. It’s things like this I want. Have an answer before the question.

  5. This abomination is probably more useful than the new Franklin Armory Revolution straight grove nerf football shooting waste of money it shure is a letdown.

  6. No. The Abominator is infinitely worth more than the Reformation. The Reformation dances around the NFA like a little fairy man in a tutu, To quote Abominator’s builder; How many gun laws does it break? All of them.

  7. ok. Hey can somebody let me know how to download that GIF of the product in action? I gotta a idea for tellin MRS.ATFAgentBob exactly what’s gonna go down after the kids are tucked in to bed tonight….

      • Every guy here thought it. I’m just the only one brave enough to say it out loud. oh and thank you by the way, soon as she recovers from falling to the floor laughing I’ll let you know how it was received.


    • simply mount that critter at the back of the sliding grip at the bottom of the unit for that majestic swaying action as you activate the blade.

  8. I believe it is intended for LE use. At car stop officer/ mil can stab tire to get rapid deflate. Lots of application in the sandbox.

  9. Just what I always wanted! An Uncircumcised Bayonet with a D.P.D., “Dog Pecker Deployment” system. And here I thought the Auto Glove was the most ridiculous. The only use I can see for this would be impaling my dignity.

  10. Is the spike solid or cylindrical (like a syringe)? I hope it is cylindrical so I can dub it “The Core Sampler”.

    For those situations where a hand held object that spits out tiny missiles at 3000 fps just isn’t scary enough.

  11. The Anti’s are already formulating their Ban Legislation, you will have 3 months to turn them all in, or risk becoming a felon…

  12. You’re all laughing or mocking it now but when the zombie apocalypse comes you’ll be dying to have this against the undying!

    • Or you could just use a sharp shovel handle to bludgeon and stab.
      Or sharpen the shovel head and slice and dice those spuds.
      Take a round point and make a giant spork of freedom to purge America of evil.
      Oops now the gun grabbing commiecrats will want a ban on assault shovels.(they’re painted black)
      Ever noticed commiecrats don’t want to ban white guns?

  13. I had to close the door to my office. The comments, you guys!! I laughed so hard I ended up in tears. All I need is my team of 20 business graduates seeing me laugh my ass off looking at my phone. They’d never take me seriously again! How would I be able to overwork them after something like that? You should put a warning on posts like these before I have to fire someone just to regain my air of unapproachableness… which has taken me years to cultivate.

  14. I bet Anthony at Microtech is already jumping on this idea but his will cost $1500 bucks and will come in vermillion damascus , be auto-vibrating, and can only be attached to an MSAR.

  15. Maybe those poor Californians can get the less-lethal version, which comes with a boxing glove attachment instead of a bayonet….

    Seriously, though, this device is about as purposeless as male nipples.

  16. Why not just pit a pig sticker just inside of a floating handguard with a small sliding lever to extend it?

    This seems overkill.
