Pipe bolt-action rifle is a weapon in Fallout 4.
The crude pipe bolt-action pistol has been modified with a stock, increasing its range and accuracy beyond the standard handheld platform.
By making the bolt-action pistol into a rifle, it is made significantly more user-friendly; in order to get close enough to land a hit with the pistol, one is put in danger while cycling the next round into the chamber. By adding the stock, one can put more distance between themselves and the target while cycling between rounds. This makes it very effective as a low level sniper rifle, especially considering that it can be re-chambered for .50 caliber as a cheaper alternative to the hunting rifle.
