For an overview of .44 caliber Magnums in the Fallout series of games, see .44 Magnum revolver.

The .44 Magnum revolver is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.


The .44 Magnum revolver is a double action, swing-out cylinder revolver, more powerful than the .357 Magnum revolver, but its ammunition is slightly rarer in the Wasteland. Additionally, the .44 Magnum fires and reloads faster than the .357 Magnum, due to its speed-loader and ejector rod. It also has luminescent iron-sights. The .44 Magnum revolver is a very durable weapon that can be concealed with a Sneak skill of 50 or greater, as it is considered an improved holdout weapon.

The .44 Magnum revolver was one of the more high-end pre-War revolvers on the civilian market. Even after two hundred years, it's maintained its accuracy, functionality, and aesthetic appeal, bearing testament to its craftsmanship.


The .44 Magnum revolver can fire a total of about 1245 standard rounds, the equivalent of 208 reloads, from full condition before breaking. When modified with the heavy frame, it can fire a total of about 1870 standard rounds, the equivalent of 312 reloads, from full condition before breaking.
