The hunting revolver is a pistol in Fallout: New Vegas.

Characteristics

Hunting revolver expanded

The hunting revolver is a large, double-action revolver that fires .45-70 Gov't ammunition. It does a significant amount of damage and comes with a scope as standard, versus requiring a modification. The hunting revolver scope has decent magnification at 2.46x. Its base damage of 58 is the second highest of any non-energy pistol, and is surpassed only by the Ranger Sequoia, which has a base Damage of 62.

The weapon has few drawbacks from a combat standpoint such as the low durability compared to other revolvers. However, from a tactical standpoint, .45-70 Gov't rounds are quite scarce with weapon vendors selling very small quantities of said rounds at very high prices.

Despite being a one-handed revolver, the hunting revolver is not a holdout weapon, meaning that, even at a Sneak skill of 100, it will not pass a search when entering a weapon-free location, such as a casino.

Durability

The hunting revolver can fire a total of about 545 standard rounds, the equivalent of 109 reloads, from full condition before breaking.

Bugs

Icon pc.png Icon ps3.png Icon xbox360.png If loading a saved game from the main menu in which you have a hunting revolver equipped and drawn, the reload animation takes twice as long as normal. This can be solved by simply switching to another gun and then back again. [verified]
