can this weapon take the heavy frame?
This weapon reloads nearly instantly
also NO UNIQUE GUN CAN TAKE A MOD (but most come with bonuses from one or all possible mods)
Anyone else having trouble hitting enemies in VATS with this gun? It looks like no matter how high your chance to hit is, it's almost impossible to hit anything, especially at short distances. --Rist 13:02, October 28, 2010 (UTC)
Reservists Rifle Glitch?
Has anyone tried the Reservists Rifle glitch with this gun yet? (Reservists Rifle is in Fallout 3) The glich is, you shoot the weapon out of their hand/ force them to drop it, take it, leave the area, wait 3 in-game days (or whatever it is to make them forget their hostility) and then another of the gun will have spawned, meaning 2 Mysterious Magnums.

Is there a way to turn the music off on PS3 when you draw the gun without turning your effects volume all the way down? ---Mended Flesh- 01:30, November 5, 2010 (UTC)
The music is the only thing that makes the gun worth using, lol. without that silliness to make you laugh its not really that great of a weapon. ranger sequoia is remarkably better if you are into pistols and revolvers, and if you arnt trying to be a cowboy the sniper rifle is pretty much the end-all be-all weapon in the game with better criticals perk and hand loader shells.
On the otherhand, the Sequoia's aesthetic isn't for everyone. The thing is stupid-huge.
It's not as if this game is very hard. The Mysterious Magnum can do just fine as a late-game weapon.
I'm sorry guys, but whenever I hear that music I instantly remember that first boss fight in MGS3 with Ocelot. Also, when Orris shoots those thugs that fake death, I remember how he shot out the engine on my plane just so he could fire blank at me. Asshole. You know what? Screw Ocelot, his Thor .45-70 (from MGS4) can suck my Ranger Sequoia. --TJbrena 16:47, February 1, 2011 (UTC)
My new Favorite
I love this freaking gun! Every time I draw it I feel like James Bond. I laugh every single time the music plays.188.8.131.52 03:43, November 18, 2010 (UTC)
Unholstering Music Playing Twice Bug
Hey, so after I did some testing regarding the "Unholstering music playing twice" bug (PC Version), I've come to the conclusion that it's a direct result from the Quick Draw perk. If someone could test it (Or confirm it) and add it to the article, that'd be swell.
If got very high agility(at least 9) or high agility(7~)+quick draw then...sometimes revolvers drawing animation played Twice(consequently more slowly weapon drawing)and also puts gun into character's ass(or body). damn it's horrible glitch!
Best single-handed weapon in the game?
I think so! If you got the Hand Loader Perk, the schematics from the guy in Vegas Square and the Cowboy perk, this gun definately outshines the 12.7mm pistol! The Mysterious Magnum is better then the Ranger Sequoia because the Ranger Sequoia has a much higher skill requirement AND a higher Strength requirement. Also the Hand Loader ammo for Ranger Sequoia makes it much less durable, while the Mysterious Magnum's Hand Loader ammo doesn't have any negative side effects. Also it's pretty hard to get a Ranger Sequoia, especially if you don't want to gain NCR infamy/want to let Chief Hanlon live in Return to Sender. The Mysterioius Magnum only needs a 50 barter skill! The Mysterious Magnum is best!
This is the Lonesome Drifter's father's gun. He describes his father as "Like a stranger" The fact that the Mysterious Stranger's theme plays whenever the Mysterious Magnum is drawn makes the Drifter's parentage fairly obvious. Although why his father abandoned him to play guardian angel to random strangers is another story lol.
