Anybody know where I can get a bayonet for an ArmiSport 2 band Enfield that fits? I've tried three, from two different sources, and they dont work at all. Couldn't even modify to make them work, without welding, etc. I know somebody out there must sell one.

Try an original. That may be your best option

You may want to try Dixie Gun Works if you haven't already. I got one from them and I only spent about 20 minutes with the file. Mine fits perfectly.

Most Civil War shows will have a few for sale. Bring your rifle and try it on before you buy. There is one in Richmond this weekend but it may be a little far for you to drive.

Try using the file on the bayonet lug instead of on the rifle. Repro lugs seem to be too thick for the socket.

Try College Hill Arsenal for an original. They usually have quite a few original bayonets for different rifles. I don't knowt hat I've seen them offer an Enfield sword bayonet, but they would be a good place to start.
