Found these cool pictures of how the USAF guys were taught to wrap the barrels in 550 paracord. Mine isnt wrapped yet.......(The four pics above ARE the actual gun for sale/trade)
Thanks for the short background/history of the gun.
Yeah, sorry. I just thought most people wouldnt know much about these. Didnt mean to give a history lesson.
I enjoyed it. I wish I lived in oregon I think I would definitely try to barter for this gun. My grandpa used to use it when he was serving our country. Had to call him and verify.
My grandfather used one of these also! Pretty cool!
I just got an e-mail from someone saying that these guns are available for purchase, "New", at S&M Gunshop in Eugene, for $299.00.
I called this gun store immeadiately to see if that was true, and talked to their manager. He told me what every other gun store I've called in Oregon told me:
"Good luck finding one, they have been gone for around 2 years now, anything you find now will be used and expensive."
I have done ALOT of homework on these guns, and I have sniffed out most if not all local connections for these guns. All the M6 Scouts Ive found for sale have been out of state and mostly way higher priced than mine. Just FYI. Thanks
edit: Just found a parkerized .22lr/ .410 M6 on Gunbroker.com, for sale from Central Point, Oregon, starting bid @ $600.00.
I have a stainless one (.22lr/.410) - it's a fun gun to shoot. Pretty handy. Lots of people seem to be looking for one of these.
Here's the article where those pics came from.
Thanks for posting the article Sun! I had found the pics, but not the article.
Yeah, I really like mine also, but like I said, decided to complete my pistol collection instead.
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA....... come on, we all know that no collection is ever complete!
Very good point 284!! I guess I cant use the line I use with my ol' lady with you guys!! You know me better than that!!!!LOL
I swear honey.....Im just completing my pistol collection.......lol
Possibly meeting for trade tomorrow, will update soon!!
Possible trade put on hold, still available.
If you wrap the barrels in para cord...make sure you put a spacer between them first..you will bend the barrels if you dont
Actually, you would have to wrap that paracord AS HARD as you can to get any bending. The barrels are both very rigid, and it would take an excessive amount of force to get that to happen.
You dont need to wrap the paracord overly tight, just enough to keep it from sliding.:thumbup:
