The Colt Rangemaster is a powerful semi-automatic rifle chambered for .223 caliber ammunition.[1] The ammunition combined with a 1:10" barrel rifling twist gives it good accuracy at range.[2] Combination of durable metals and wooden furniture make it an exceptionally durable firearm. The rifle can accept an aftermarket Loophole x20 or Triveld x10 scope.[3][4]


An accurate, long-ranged, and common weapon early in the game. It is an effective weapon early in the game, but much better replacements can be found later on.


In Fallout 2, it can be upgraded with a scope.

It uses the .223 caliber rifle round, a standard for over 110 years. The .223, combined with a 1:10” twist, gives good accuracy at range and solid knockdown capability."
  3. In-game description for the scoped hunting rifle in Fallout 2: "{28700}{}{Scoped Hunting Rifle}"
    "{28701}{}{Nothing's better than seeing that surprised look on your target's face. The Loophole x20 Scope on this hunting rifle makes it easier than ever before. Accurate from first shot to last, no matter what kind of game you're gunning for. Min ST: 5.}"
  4. Buster: "{121}{}{Maybe. Just might have a Triveld x10 rifle scope - would fit just fine on a hunting rifle, if somebody was interested. Let it go cheap -- $500.}"
