Season 6 of The X-Files premiered on November 8, 1998 - Nearly five months after the release of the first feature film - and would be the first season of the series to be filmed in Los Angeles, California, after having been filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada for the previous five seasons. The show moved to accommodate David Duchovny, who wished to be closer to his then wife Téa Leoni, and to also have proximity to Hollywood for potential film work. Despite opposition by showrunner Chris Carter, FOX moved the series to LA, where it would be filmed for the rest of its run.

The move to LA would bring several changes to the show. One was a major increase in overall production costs, which limited the scale of the series in terms of special effects use and other production aspects compared to prior filming in Vancouver. Another would be a somewhat differing tone in story-writing which moved from the prior darker and more intense 'Monster of the Week' episodes to 'lighter' standalones with simpler stories and different styles of humor and/or romantic elements - elements which would alienate some long-term fans of the series. Likely due to these factors, the series would go down slightly in ratings compared to the previous season. Several episodes would be well-regarded in S6 however, and the show overall remained quite popular. Duchovny himself would both solo-write (he had co-written several prior episodes) and direct an episode in the sixth season, "The Unnatural", while the season would feature several notable guest actors, such as Michael McKean and Bruce Campbell.

Meanwhile, the overarching mythology of the show would be taken to a new level in Season 6, culminating in major changes. Mulder and Scully would, for much of the season, be denied working officially on the X-Files, while several newer characters, previously introduced in the prior season, would be further featured in Season 6, notably Diana Fowley (Mimi Rogers) and Jeffrey Spender (Chris Owens). The fate of the consortium administering the conspiracy at the human level, the Syndicate, would also be irrevocably altered in S6.

The season would conclude in May 1999 with 22 episodes, ending in a cliffhanger with the finale "Biogenesis", which would become part one of a three-part arc that would conclude with the two-part opener for the following season.


The following weapons were used in Season 6 of the television series The X-Files:

Revolvers

Colt Python

A stainless 4" barreled Colt Python with grooved grips is taken and used by Patrick Crump (Bryan Cranston), a man suffering from a critical inner ear illness due to exposure to faulty extremely-low-frequency (ELF) transmission, to hold Mulder hostage in "Drive" (S6E02). Another blue-steel Python is wielded by a security guard in "Trevor" (S6E17).

Crump holds the Python on Mulder in "Drive" (S6E02). TRIVIA: Bryan Cranston would later go on to play the central character Walter White in Breaking Bad, which was produced/written by X-Files writer Vince Gilligan. Gilligan, who wrote "Drive", specifically wanted Cranston to appear in the episode; His performance here would become a deciding factor for AMC officials to allow him to be cast in Breaking Bad (Cranston was otherwise primarily known for his comedic, over-the-top performance as Hal on Malcolm in the Middle). Along with Dean Norris and Aaron Paul, he is one of three Breaking Bad stars who first came to Gilligan's attention through their guest appearances on The X-Files.

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch MP5A3

Numerous Heckler & Koch MP5A3s are seen throughout the series. These are wielded by police tactical officers and government agents, as well as military and black-ops personnel. In Season 6, these weapons are first seen wielded by Groom Lake / Area 51 USAF personnel in the two-part episode "Dreamland" (S6E04 / S6E05), fitted with Surefire 628 weaponlight forearms. The weapons also appear to have Navy lower receivers/trigger packs, as seen in other episodes, particularly "Monday" (S6E14).

MP40

German soldiers occupying the Queen Anne luxury liner in "Triangle" (S6E03) are seen with MP40s.

MP-40 - 9x19mm
German troops drag away Mulder In "Triangle" (S6E03). An MP40 is seen slung on the soldier to the left. The use of MP40s is a (slight) anachronism as these sequences in the episode take place in 1939; The MP40 wasn't introduced until 1940. However it could be argued these weapons are stand-ins for the less-available MP38.
A German soldier brandishes his MP40 in "Triangle" (S6E03).

Rifles / Carbines

M16A2

Actual M16A2 rifles are seen in the later seasons produced in Los Angeles, California (Season 6 onward), rather than Olympic Arms variants as seen in the previous Vancouver-produced seasons of the show. These weapons generally appeared in the hands of U.S. military personnel, particularly Groom Lake / Area 51 USAF personnel in the two-part episode "Dreamland" (S6E04 / S6E05).

M16A2 - 5.56x45mm
In the background, a USAF airman is seen with an M16A2 Rifle with mounted weaponlight in "Dreamland" (S6E04).

XM177 / CAR-15 (Mock-ups)

XM177-style carbines are seen used by military personnel and SWAT officers, notably Groom Lake / Area 51 USAF personnel in the two-part episode "Dreamland" (S6E04 / S6E05). Unlike previous seasons of the series, these weapons all appear to be mocked up from newer Colt Carbines with A2 receivers, such as the Model 727 (distinguished by the brass deflector and A2 rear sights) with a slightly different style of mock XM-style flash moderators, more similar to those commonly seem on carbines in LA productions (This would be appropriate, given the series' move in production to Los Angeles from Vancouver beginning in S6). The carbines all also feature mounted weaponlights.

Another shot of the Senior Airman with his Colt Carbine, this image better showing the receiver - Note the brass deflector and A2 rear sights. Note also, however, the older 'teardrop'-style forward assist. The pressure switch for the weaponlight can also be clearly seen in this shot, mounted on the right side of the handguard.

To the left is an airman with a XM177 mockup with mounted weaponlight in "Dreamland II" (S6E05). Note again the A2-style upper receiver on this rifle, not seen on actual XM177s or CAR-15s.

M16A1 (Mocked up as M16A2)

Some M16A2 rifles seen are actually M16A1s fitted with A2-handguards to stand-in for the M16A2. Several of these rifles are seen clearly in the hands of police officers manning a roadblock in "Drive" (S6E02).

M16A1 with A2 handguards - 5.56x45mm. Putting the distinctive A2 handguards on the older rifle was a method used by Movie/TV armorers to simulate A2 rifles when M16A1s were the only ones available.

The Nevada Highway Patrol officers with their rifles in "Drive" (S6E02). Note the thinner barrel, as well as the lack of brass deflectors and A2-style rear sights, clearly indicating these are M16A1 rifles with A2 handguards installed to pass for M16A2s. In the background is a two-tone LAR Grizzly Big Boar wielded by another patrolman.

LAR Grizzly Big Boar

What appears to be a LAR Grizzly Big Boar with stainless barrel and lower receiver, ported muzzle brake and scope is seen in the hands of a Nevada Highway Patrol trooper manning a roadblock in "Drive" (S6E02).

LAR Grizzly Big Boar with black finish - .50 BMG (12.7x99mm). Note the ported muzzle brake. The weapon seen in the show has a stainless barrel and lower receiver, but is otherwise identical.
A Nevada Highway Patrolman with a Grizzly Big Boar in "Drive" (S6E02). A single-shot .50 BMG rifle seems a somewhat odd choice of weapon for a patrolman to be carrying around.

Winchester Model 1894

What appears to be a Winchester Model 1894 lever-action rifle (or clone/copy) is seen carried by one of the Klansmen on horseback in "The Unnatural" (S6E19).

Shotguns

Remington 870

Remington 870s are wielded by police officers and and government agents throughout the series. 870s are also seen rarely in the hands of black ops soldiers. Both standard variants and variants with mounted forend weaponlights are seen. In Season 6 Remington 870s are seen with other accessories, such as Speedfeed stocks, as seen in "Monday" (S6E14).

Remington 870 Police Magnum Riot Shotgun - 12 Gauge

Remington 870 Folding Stock

Several Remington 870 Folding Stock shotguns are seen used in Season 6. The first notable appearance is in "Agua Mala" (S6E13), where it is used by George Vincent, a survivalist apartment tenant, to attempt to kill a water monster breaking out from the plumbing over his apartment. Near the conclusion of "Trevor" (S6E17), another Remington 870 Folder is notably used by Special Agent Fox Mulder (David Duchovny), loaded with rubber riot slugs, against escaped convict Wilson 'Pinker' Rawls (John Diehl). These were used in lieu of conventional rounds due to Rawls' ability to pass through any solid, electrically-conductive materials - The rubber in the riot slugs, being an electrical insulator, counteracts such ability.

Mossberg 500 (Numerous Variants)

Several types of Mossberg 500 shotguns are seen throughout the season - Due to the number of different variants, they will be sub-divided within this section.

Mossberg 500AT

Some of the Mossberg shotguns appear to be Mossberg 500AT variants, noted by the wooden foregrip.
