Default Shotguns with Bayonettes

Can anyone give me information about older shotguns which have bayonettes on them? Any information would be appreciated such as who makes them, when made, etc Thanks

During The Great War (aka: WW1) they were known as Trench Guns. The Germans tried to get them outlawed as "inhumane," but considering it was Germany that began using chemical weapons, nobody paid them much attention.

Due to having a surplus of m1917 availability, The WW1/WW2 M97 (winchest 1897) and the later WW2 M12 (winchester 1912) and the Winchester 1200 Combat shotguns were all fitted with the bayonette lug for usage with the m1917 16" bayonet, and IIRC some shotguns using this configuration were in still use up thru the Vietnam war

Oh really?
Norinco Model 97 Trench Gun 12g 20"

Actually the trench gun isn't legal for CAS. It is legal for Wild Bunch side matches tho.
