|For an overview of 10mm pistol models in the Fallout series of games, see 10mm pistol.|
Background[edit | edit source]
Originally produced in 1929 by the Taiyuan Arsenal for the army of Yan Xishan, this pistol is now a relic of the Sino-American War. The Shanxi Type 17 was a mass-produced sidearm before the Great War.
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
While the Chinese pistol is not very useful as a weapon, they are relatively lightweight and can be collected, repaired, and sold to provide an early source of caps, or simply saved to repair the Zhu-Rong v418 Chinese pistol.
Durability[edit | edit source]
The Chinese pistol can fire a total of about 1250 rounds, the equivalent of 125 reloads, from full condition before breaking.
Variants[edit | edit source]
- Zhu-Rong v418 Chinese pistol - While the Zhu-Rong does the same base amount of damage, it is unique due to the fact that it fires incendiary rounds, which deal fire damage over time.
- Sim version - A simulation-only version of the weapon which differs primarily in health, with item HP so high that it is essentially non-degrading. This version also has a slightly different appearance, lacking the rust found on various parts of the standard weapon.

- Chinese Dragoon Pistol - A cut version of the weapon is included in Operation: Anchorage, apparently intended for use in the normal game after completion of the simulation. This version has identical stats to the Fallout 3 version, but has the same appearance as the simulation version of the weapon. This version is not used anywhere within the add-on and can only be acquired through the use of console commands.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- The full name of the weapon in traditional Chinese characters can be seen in the texture file. They are inscribed "一七式" (One-Seven Type) on the left hand side of the pistol, while the right side is marked "民國十八年晉造" (Republic Year Eighteen, Made in Shanxi). A number "1861" also appears.
- The weapon model has no firing pin.
- Fallout: New Vegas includes a brief appearance of the Chinese pistol, seen on the far wall of the "hidden" weapons room in Mick & Ralph's. This version of the weapon is a non-interactive static mesh (i.e. a decoration) rather than a working weapon. Most of the other resources for this weapon remain in the game's files, but no actual, working version of the weapon exists within the game itself.
