Gun Report

Springfield Armory M6 Scout .22 LR/.410

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

Not much to look at, this nearly all-steel rifle won the hearts of some of our experienced shooters because of the addition of the very useful shotgun barrel. The rifle/shotgun balanced just in front of its hinge pin, and carried very easily. Taken down into its two component parts, it stowed into a small space. Some users of these guns wrap the barrels with parachute cord for added comfort and utility. We liked the onboard ammo trap in the stock.

The rifle's name and importer are on the right side. Beneath the names and slightly to the rear is the takedown button. There were two rear sight options provided, an aperture for the .22 and a V-notch for the Full-choked .410 barrel. Lockup was tight, and everything worked well.
The rear sight had a small aperture, and we'd open it for our own use. There were no provisions for elevation adjustment, but the front sight was adequately high to permit filing to suit. The top of the comb was rubber-coated for facial comfort. The stock design let the gun slip away from the face under the significant recoil of the .410 barrel with heavy loads.
The top of the stock swings open to reveal 15 rounds of .22 and four of .410.
