    What you need now is a slightly damaged bayonet, the type we'd describe as 'out of spec' with a rounded tip with either white or red/white/red banded grips to go with it. A good use for an otherwise unserviceable bayonet

    Many years from now, collectors will be bragging about having an original unaltered Springfield Sporters rifle with original intact inventory aluminum tag. Possibly the latest version of Numrich will have reproduction tags. Consecutive serial numbered tags??? Wow, the possibilities.

    And I'll bet it would cost as much as the rifle. Still, you are right it would go nice with it for display.
