I foolishly sold/traded a mint chrome M4 about 1981.  Last summer I
purchased a mint M4-P.  (One of the last 1000 produced.)  I've heard a lot
about how the 'P' isn't near as nice as the M4, but all I can say is the M4
felt great, I missed it, and the M4-P feels great and I'm a happy camper
again.  If they were side by side, maybe I would begrudge the differences,
but they aren't and I have been very well pleased.  No problems what so
ever.  I know this does not answer your question about the M6, just my two
