anyone know if bayonets are full tang? i know i know stupid question right? i have never really held one so i really do not know. i never had a reason to have one in my hand
 
Depends on the bayonet. The M9 has a short threaded tang that a rod screws onto and then the latch is attached to that. I'm not that familiar with others but I imagine the M7 is.
 
my friend has 2 old ones. one hsi great grand fathers from WWI and the other hsi grandfathers from WWII. the WWI one is full tang, very simple piece, just the blade with simple grips on it. the WWII one is much much nicer. has some simple decorations and a bolster, it had a blood grove in it as well.

i think the WWII was full tang but i am not positive

Most of the sword and knife bayonets have a full tang. They were built to take alot of stress without breaking. But, some were not; which model are you asking about?

I have an English bayonet made in 1907 and used in WW1.
It is full-tang
