M6 Scout Assembly Tip

M6 Scout – An Overview

M6 Carry Bag

I received an email earlier this week about reassembling the M6 Scout.  From my recollection, it was absolutely frustrating trying to manage the tension from the hammer spring as I attempt to insert the main pivot pin into the body.  When I finally got it back together, I took a few notes on how I did it so that I may write about it later.  While I haven’t taken apart my M6 since then, I tried my best to help another to get his M6 back together.

I could have written a piece on how to do so, but I felt a video was more appropriate.  Assuming I’m not fumbling with my words, it’s much easier to present than to write.  I might do more videos in the future.  This is what I put together on the quick to help him get his M6 running again.

He said it helped.  I gather that this may benefit others as well.

    Life. Saver. While trying to put mine back together I sorta wanted to shoot the gun, with the gun. That spring is a bear.

    I found to open the trigger guard slide spring guide up from the locked position. Do this by using a flat tipped screw driver with the hammer pushed forward to pry the guide free then up, do not remove guide (mine won’t come out the top anyways). Now with the spring guide in this position the trigger can be pressed up enough for the trigger guard to clear the trigger and swing forward. I then shortened that overly long tab so it can clear the hole without going through this process.

    Did you ever make a take down video?

    I struggled for several hours trying to get it back together before I found these instructions. Took only a few minutes to get it back together. You are a life saver. Big thumbs up

      Awesome. I’m glad that posting up the video has benefited others!
