  • The aligned very short barrel mod may be crafted and applied to a 10mm pistol at a weapons workbench if the relevant plan is known. The mod can only be learned from scrapping 10mm pistols.
  • Loose mods may be randomly sold by Responder, Raider, Brotherhood, and Free States vendors. They may also be found randomly in various locations or earned as quest rewards in The Forest.


The mod doesn't follow the standard naming conventions for 10mm pistol barrels with a range of "very short;" instead of being named "aligned stub barrel," the mod is called "aligned very short barrel."

  • The loose mod, however, is properly named "aligned stub barrel," not to be confused with the craftable mod of the same name.
