Dalton M9 12" OTF

Sep 17, 1999
Does anyone have knowledge of this knife. I have seen protos and it looks like a large M6. I am impressed with the M6 and was wondering if anyone has held and M9 and could make comparasion.

Thank you for your response. I am surprised that no hole exists on the charging handle. The M6 has one. This being a bigger knife it seems certain it would. It is always possible to modify.

I'll let you know when mine comes in next week. They just arrived at the dealers early this last week. Its just an extra long M6.

The M9 arrived today. Although I don't currently have an M6 with which to make a side-by-side comparison, the M9 appears to just be an extra long M6. The spring is VERY strong. There is slight side-to-side blade play in the open position. No up and down movement. The charging handle is difficult to grip. There is no cross pin or hole for a lanyard on the charging handle. It comes with a pocket clip, but you would need really deep pockets to hold the M9.

Hope this helps.
