A pistol chambered for 12.7mm rounds.
The 12.7mm fires and reloads like a 9mm, but packs a more serious punch. This pistol has the third highest base damage-per-second of any non-energy pistol in Fallout: New Vegas, bested only by A Light Shining in Darkness (144.4) and Li'l Devil (GRA) (146.3). It takes a Guns skill of 75 and a Strength of 7 in order to take full advantage of the weapon. Its only drawbacks are poor accuracy (it has the highest weapon spread of any pistol in the game, comparable to even some automatic weapons) and its lack of being a holdout weapon.

- Brewer's beer bootlegging - one has a chance to spawn in the gun cabinet near the cellar door, the key to the gun cabinet can be found under a Big Book of Science.
- Gun Runners - it can be bought from Vendortron from level 11.
- Hidden Valley bunker - it can sometimes be bought from Knight Torres.
- Hoover Dam - Cassandra Moore carries one in poor condition and some NCR troopers carry them as well in average condition.
- Fiends, Great Khans, Legionary assassins and NCR troopers are known to sometimes wield 12.7mm weapons. The 12.7mm pistols they use are usually in very poor condition.
- Great Khans - The best place to find Great Khans wielding them is in Red Rock Canyon.
- Caesar's Legion - They can be obtained from Legion soldiers at the Fort. Veteran legionaries and decani sometimes carry at them at high enough levels.
- NCR - the NCR troopers in the Hoover Dam visitor center and Hoover Dam offices carry these even at lower levels (level 7), also during the final assault on Hoover Dam, they can be seen wielding the weapon quite frequently.
- White Legs in Zion Canyon will carry them if the player character is at a sufficient level.
- Bloodborne cave - there is one in the second chamber after the legendary night stalker, found in a group of mushrooms across from the dead NCR trooper.
- The silencer modification possibly makes the most noise of any silenced weapon, though it is still considered absolutely silent.
- The unique variant Li'l Devil is a more powerful holdout weapon and can be snuck into casinos but cannot be modified and thus cannot be silenced, making the 12.7mm pistol potentially more viable with a silencer mod.
Behind the scenes
It is modeled after the 14mm pistol from both Fallout and Fallout 2, the only difference being the magazine does not protrude from in front of the grip. Instead, the magazine is reloaded just like most conventional handguns, such as the 9mm pistol.
