    I read elsewhere that the Glock knife is really a bayonet. Does anybody know this to be true? On what type of rifle is it designed to be mounted? Is it possible to affix it to a pre-ban AR-15?

    Never heard of that just looked at mine and did'nt see a way it could mount to anything. But it is also a bottle opener

    Trust an Austrian to put a bottle opener on a combat knife ;)

    I'm suprised the Glock pistols don't have bottle openers on them. I'm sure it was discussed.

    I think it is.
    I saw it somewhere in a catalog under the bayonet section but not the knives section. You can also see that the bottle opener can be used to attach to something and then there are two little holes on the bottom of the handle (each side) that could be used to secure it in place.

    It is also issued to the Austrian army and I guess they would also want to use it as a bayonet (although they probably use the bottle opener more :)). I´m not sure what rifle they´re using though.

    Sorry about bumping this thread, but I have to comment on the last paragraph...

    The Austrian army (which I happened to be part of for 8 months) uses the Glock knife exclusively as a knife, to cut stuff and stab people (we also use the entrenching tool to hit them, if there's enough time to get it out).
    We could have gotten proper bayonets instead, but they would have been more expensive, and we simply don't believe in the concept of a bayonet here.
    Instead, we tell our soldiers to use the barrel.
    Considering that our main issue rifle is the Steyr AUG (which offers a long, freestanding barrel and a vertical foregrip), a properly executed "barrel stab" can easily penetrate someone's skull - twice.

    PS: The most important word above is "expensive". A knife is simply cheaper than a bayonet; same goes for AUGs with and without the screw-on bayonet lug.

    I've never seen it, but I've read that there is an adapter kit that allows the knife to be used as a bayonet on the standard Austrian rifle...

    Steyr AUG... yummy...

    It's always been just a knife as far as I know.

    As I have served in the Austrian Army I can say for sure, that its concept is that of a fighting knife.
    Also the ones with the sawback are only issued to our Jagdkommando (Commandos - they compare pretty well in international competitions... beat the delta force several times)
    We wear it on our left shoulder, upside down on the shoulder strap.



    besides... an Austrian talking englich is not nearly as funny as an american talking austrian german.;)

    FYI: try lifting off the plastic plug at the end of the handle. the metal tube must be here for something....;d
