Service history
 

The M6B handgun is a United Nations Space Command sidearm.[1]

Background[edit]

The M6B is an "Officers' Model" variant of Misriah Armory's M6 series of pistols, and is noted for its comfort and KFA-2 x2 scope. By 2552, the model had been largely phased out of military use and only saw widespread distribution in civilian security forces.[2]

The M6B fires 12.7×40mm projectiles, and has a hard chrome finish. Unlike other models such as the M6D or the M6G, it is not upsized to fit MJOLNIR armor.[1]

Trivia[edit]

In Halo: Reach, the stamping on the right side of the M6G magnum incorrectly states the sidearm as the Model 6B.
