The Sig-Sauer 14mm pistol is a small gun in Fallout 2.

Background[edit | edit source]

The following section is transcluded from SIG-Sauer pistol. To modify, please edit the source page.

A large framed semi-automatic pistol, the SIG-Sauer 14mm handgun is unique in more than just looks. Unlike the tilting barrel system used by the vast majority of pistols, it relies on a fixed barrel without a slide. A weight underneath the front of the barrel absorbs the recoil, actuating a bolt which extends backwards above the shooter's hand, before being forced back by a recoil spring, feeding another round into the chamber.[1] The 14mm pistol was imported to the U.S. from Europe in limited quantitites,[2][3] making them a rare, but powerful weapon. As the availability of 14mm Euro ammunition decreased, existing and new units were converted to fire 12.7mm ammunition.[4]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

A decent-enough pistol whose usability is crippled by the damage penalty inherent to armor-piercing ammunition. The accuracy makes it usable, but there are better choices by the time the player comes across it.
