It is a Bethesda tradition to add giant versions of items to their games, and Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas are no exception.
Oversized and undersized items are items which are scaled larger or smaller than normal.
They can be used as unique decorations for your house. Items of unusual size exhibit slightly peculiar behavior compared to "regular" objects. You can pick them up from where you found them, and drop them elsewhere only once. You can keep them in your inventory, or in storage indefinitely (though you won't be able to tell them apart from a regular item of the same type). Drop them on the ground and they will still retain their size. However, if you pick the item up and drop it again, it will lose its "special" size and become a normal object. Resized items have priority over normal items when managing your inventory. Regardless of the amount of an item, or the order that the items are placed within your inventory/a container, the first item(s) that you drop from your inventory, or place into/remove from a container, will always be the resized item. If you decide to display the item in another location such as the Tenpenny Tower and you dropped it in My Megaton house, just shoot the resized item once, pick it up, and drop it again. Doing this will prevent the resized item from reverting to a normal object and retain its unique size.
