The .44 Magnum revolver is a double action, swing-out cylinder revolver, with a high damage output for a one-handed gun, but its ammunition is slightly rarer in the wasteland. Additionally, the .44 Magnum fires and reloads quickly, due to its speed-loader and ejector rod. It is, however, somewhat inaccurate with a spread of 0.7, on the high end of one-handed guns. It also has luminescent iron-sights. The .44 Magnum revolver is a very durable weapon that can be concealed with a Sneak skill of 50 or greater, as it is considered an improved holdout weapon.


The .44 Magnum revolver can fire a total of about 1,245 standard rounds, the equivalent of 208 reloads, from full condition before breaking. When modified with the heavy frame, it can fire a total of about 1870 standard rounds, the equivalent of 312 reloads, from full condition before breaking.

This can be solved by simply switching to another gun and then back again. [verified]
