The Ranger Sequoia is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.


This large, double-action revolver is a rare, scopeless variant of the hunting revolver. It is used exclusively by the New California Republic Rangers, and is carried only by a NCR Veteran Ranger after 20 years of service. This revolver features a dark finish with intricate engravings etched all around the weapon. Engraved along the barrel are the words "For Honorable Service," and "Against All Tyrants." The hand grip bears the symbol of the NCR Rangers, a bear, and a brass plate attached to the bottom that reads "20 Years."

Despite being a one-handed revolver, this is not a holdout weapon, meaning that, even at a Sneak skill of 100, it will not pass a search when entering a weapon-free location, such as a casino, where you are asked to turn over your weapons.


The Ranger Sequoia can fire a total of about 395 standard rounds, the equivalent of 79 reloads, from full condition before breaking.

  • Camp Golf - owned by Chief Hanlon.
  • It can also be obtained from NCR Veteran Rangers, who have this weapon once the player has reached level 16.


  • Despite being a very powerful and exceedingly rare weapon, it is actually worth very little in the way of caps.
  • The Ranger Sequoia shares its firing sound with that of the .44 Magnum revolver, not that of its standard variant, the hunting revolver.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Ranger Sequoia is based on the Magnum Research BFR with elements taken from the Bison Bull as well.[1]

Only switching ammunition types will fix this, and then only until the next time you unequip and reequip or reholster and redraw the weapon. [verified]
