A Springfield armoury M6 USAF aircrew 'survival' weapon that is a folding combined shotgun and smallbore rifle. Springfield Armory M6 Sorry, don't know how to post a pic. Do others on here use photobucket? Not an original Septic idea, my boxhead ancestors came up with it. The Luftwaffe comissioned a similar weapon in the 1930s, called the 'Drilling', a double barrelled side by side shotgun with a rifle barrel beneath for good measure. This Springfield is apparently for hunting small game (squirrels?) to keep a downed pilot fed. I read in Robert Mason's excellent 'Chickenhawk' that despite the Geneva Conv some Huey pilots had a 12 Guage under the seat, but i reckon that was for hunting a different sort of game.... I want one. Ideal to keep in the hatch of my seakayak for when the jetskinobbers won't fark off, or under the bed for when some cnut tries to steal my car again, or ......... the possibilities are endless. I know we have a few Americans monitoring Arrse, have any of you been issued one/fired one/seen one? Do Uk forces have such a thing?
