To be honest, not much difference. Basic over all shape and length are close enough in scale most people would not be able to tell the difference. The actual Mk6 is around 720 in. in length and the Mk1 is around 736 in.

one thing I noticed between the 2 is the Mk1 is stepped and the 6 ramped at the blastbag end. the 1 seems to be about the same length as the kit guns. might NOT be noticeable, but I'D know. might get the 6's, being as cheap as they are
