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

The .44 pistol is a weapon appearing in Fallout 4.


The .44 pistol is a double-action revolver, chambered in the .44 Magnum cartridge, with a blued finish and wooden grips. It doesn't have as many customization options as most pistol frames, but these firearms boast considerable ballistic damage.

These pistols are relatively common, and they can be found or purchased throughout the Commonwealth. Aiming down sights is ill-advised for close encounters due to the strong recoil, and with the proper mods it can be made quite accurate for firing from the hip.

The Nuka-World add-on adds an additional barrel to this weapon's available modifications.

  • Can be looted from dead Triggermen.
  • A snubnosed version of this revolver can be found in the Water filtration caps stash lying beside a skeleton close to the shore of the lake near Sanctuary, but before Concord is reached. The skeleton is leaning against a deactivated water pump not far from an unmarked small raider camp. Cross the bridge leaving Sanctuary then follow the shore left, past a dock until you come to the water pump. Follow the pump pipe, it leads directly to the skeleton with the gun.

  • Despite likely being a double-action revolver the Sole Survivor and any NPCs equipped with the weapon only ever use it as a single action weapon; meaning the user must manually cock the hammer before firing another shot and giving the weapon a very low rate of fire.
  • Despite the standard barrel being considered the "standard" barrel for the weapon, the .44 pistol is more frequently found with the snubnose barrel. This anomaly is shared with the Deliverer and 10mm pistol.
  • The weapon is used by the Mysterious Stranger in Fallout 4.
