Overview[edit]

Design details[edit]

The Gunfighter Magnum is a stripped down M6H2 that has had the trigger guard, under-barrel flashlight module, and smart link module removed. It has also been modified to accept fast-reload magazines. These modifications were made for competition purposes and have reduced the weight to allow quick draws and fast reloads.[citation needed]

Variants[edit]

  • Buck's Magnum:

The sidearm of Spartan-IV Edward Buck. His magnum has the standard gunfighter receiver and the same slide as the Whispered Truth.[citation needed]

The Whispered Truth is a magnum machine pistol that fires in burst. It has the same modifications as the Gunfighter, but has been mounted with a custom nickel plated slide and a Suppressor.[citation needed]
