The .38 receiver is a weapon mod for the combat rifle, the hunting rifle, the pipe bolt-action pistol and the pipe revolver in Fallout 4.


The .38 receiver converts the ammunition type that the modded weapon uses to .38 rounds. It provides reduced damage in exchange for a more common type of ammo in the Commonwealth.


The recipe for this weapon mod varies depending on the weapon for which it is made:
