SPRINGFIELD ARMORY M6 SCOUT RIFLE, PARKERIZED

The Springfield Armory M6 Scout Rifle is patterned after the US Air Force M6 survival rifle. It's ideal for hikers, campers, and others who need a lightweight, compact firearm when in the woods or field. The M6 Scout hasn't been produced since 2007, but still can be found used or as new in box if you look hard enough. Be aware that, because of their rarity, prices on them are nearly double what they cost new when they were still being produced.

Springfield Armory no longer makes the M6 Scout rifles or carbines, but they're sometimes found used or as new in box. They've become a collector's item, so be prepared to pay a bit more.

"My m6 was had at a gun show for 75 bucks about 8 years ago its 22h/410 its in super condition I swapped out the breakdown pin for a grade 5 blued nut and bolt and doubled wrapped about 8 inches of the barrels with paracord if it hits the fan it would be a first grab out of the safe its my pal"

"The M6 is a wonderful gun. It is easy to pack and carry and provides ammo ready for most tasks with no trouble. I love it. I have a .22 Hornet/410 model. It goes where I go."

"This is an ecellent suvival rifle. I only wish they made it in .223 over 20 GA. I would go with the .22 Hornet and handload subsonic rounds for small game. The .22 Hornet can be loaded up for deer too. A chamber insert for .22 LR in the .410 is not a bad idea to have as well. I have owned mine for 20 years. I have shot 000 buck, slugs and bird shot out of it. I have shot the .22 hornet as well. Rifle accuracy is good and the .410 pattern is good out to about 15 to 20 yerds. Weight is light and it fits inside a backpack very nicely. An extra hinge pin is a good thing to have as well, incase you loose the original. I am considering getting a rail for mine and a quick point type compact scope as well.."

Primary purpose: Target Shooting

"Its just a plain fun gun. My wife bought it for a Christmas present about 15 years ago. Recently while on the Springfield website, I ran across and bought the take down pin and case for it. It's great Springfield still supports this gun. My primary use is just plinking."

Primary purpose: hunting

"When I was younger I acquired one in a trade for some big bore hunting tack drivers. He threw it in for fun. It was by far the best carry-along on a hog hunting trip you could ask for. When you're working dogs and you can throw it in the mud and pick it right up and go back to it, that makes it all worthwhile"

Primary Use: Hunting

"This is a great little firearm. I call it my "grouse-getter". Due to the compactness of the weapon, the length of pull is rather short for me, but that's a small adjustment for the advantage of such a great combo gun. Mine is in .410/.22 and has numerous dinners of grouse or rabbit to its credit. My only worry is that someday my daughter will want to take it home with her. She thinks it's the greatest little hunting device ever made."

Primary Use: Hunting

"This rifle is perfect for so many different tasks: camping, fishing, hunting, survival. Whether you use the rifle or it's just part of your gear, it is an excellent tool. Why it's not being produced AGAIN is beyond belief. I ask Springfield Armory's research and development teams to bring this wonderful, all-purpose tool back, unchanged and un-altered."
