The trail carbine is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.


Trail carbine expanded

The trail carbine has an eight round capacity, fires quickly, and has low weapon spread. The weapon is also inexpensive to repair and durable. Its tubular magazine is reloaded by hand one round at a time, but can be interrupted mid-way through reloading and fired if needed.


The trail carbine can fire a total of about 2495 standard rounds, the equivalent of 312 reloads, from full condition before breaking.

  • Icon ps3.png When changing ammunition for the trail carbine the reload animation may loop and continuously reload. This can be remedied by just changing the ammunition type again. This glitch can also occur with any weapon with long reloading sequences, like the cowboy repeater and the brush gun. [verified]
  • Icon pc.png Icon ps3.png Icon xbox360.png If ammunition types are changed quickly, the gun will load in one bullet then be fully loaded. [verified]
  • Icon xbox360.png If using the glitch above without the 8 rounds of that ammo type required to fully load the gun, it will keep loading one round at a time until it is interrupted. [verified]
  • Icon xbox360.png Changing ammunition types quickly will cause lever and the receiver to be out half-cocked in the 3rd person view. [verified]
  • Icon xbox360.png When using the regular iron sights on this weapon, the bullet travels slightly above the front sight. To compensate, the player should aim slightly below the target, or turn off true iron sights. [verified]
  • Icon pc.png Icon xbox360.png The reload animation of lever action weapons doesn't have a corresponding jam animation, so the weapon will not jam, even at near-broken conditions.[verified]
