I have an M44 Mosin carbine that is a tack driver at 200 yards with the bayonet extended (shoots high and right with it folded). It’s heavy enough that the recoil really isn’t bad, it’s better than hubbys 308 deer rifle that is a lot lighter.
It’s funny - any time I show it to a couple visiting the house for dinner the man always turns and pokes his spouse with the bayonet (even those trained in gun safety).
It says something about relationships, right there LOL.
We say, “I’m going to take the gun off the wall and shoot the next person who calls.” LOL! We don’t have a gun on the wall, but we have lotsa them. And a lot of ammo.
God bless this country.
