Our Assessment: The M6 Scout is a multipurpose firearm, combining rifle and shotgun. It has been in and out of commercial production several times since the late 1970s (out of production again as of March 2008). The latest models were manufactured byCeská Zbrojovka Uhersky Brod and sold by Springfield Armory. The M6 design and model number come from the M6 Aircrew Survival Weapon, issued to U.S. Air Force aircrew from the late 1950s until the early 1970s. The commercial model is nearly identical to the USAF version, though there are a couple of minor cosmetic differences. The greatest change is that the commercial model has a barrel length of 18 ¼ inches (46.4 cm) instead of the 14 inches (36 cm) barrel length of the USAF version. So if you’re looking for the Ultimate survival weapon that was issued to military personal, then this is for you!
