Hehe, favorite weapon of mine. Deals insane damage with insane armor penetration and nearly limitless ammo. Yes, it has a five-round clip cylinder. But I usually end up with a few thousand rounds anyway... In my opinion, it clearly outperforms the PPK12 in every way: a small pistol using the secondmost-abundant ammo in the game, capable of penetrating Advanced Power Armor and deal 30-50 damage per shot WITHOUT CRITICALS. I was originally using it as backup to the sniper rifle, but I noticed that the sniper is tooooo slow and weak compared to this beast.--Amitakartok 19:10, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Update: I read somewhere in this wiki that this pistol has a bug which makes it ignore armor.--Amitakartok 20:32, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
Waaay late to the discussion here, but yeah. The .223 has the "Penetrate" weapon perk according to Per Jorner, which makes it ignore 5 Normal damage threshold in addition to the armor penetration. Nitty Tok. 18:08, June 3, 2010 (UTC)

This just in!, I was watching the Fallout new vegas dev diary for factions and at 2:40-2:43, guess what I saw? That's right the .223 pistol is in New Vegas! If you want to see it check out Dev. Diary 4 - Factions for New vegas and go to 2:40-2:42 and check it. I posted here because I don't want to cause a scene. (71.105.140.83 02:32, October 8, 2010 (UTC))

Behind the Scenes Description[edit source]

The PKD Special, or "Blade Runner Gun" in the movie was not made from a .223 rifle as the description claims. It was made from a British Charter Arms .44 Magnum Bulldog revolver with a Steyr bolt-action reciever grafted to the top of the frame and barrel. That reciever is supposed to represent some sort of mini-grenade launcher, which is why the PKD had two triggers. That scene where Deckard is trying to kill Roy in the tenament building, and Roy dodges a big smokey explosion? That's the grenade launcher in action.

I made some description edits to better reflect the reference links (although they don't mention the grenade launcher part). If nobody likes the changes, they are free to revert or modify. --http://brianranzoni.com 17:47, October 16, 2010 (UTC)
Wow! Thanks for the info and the accuracy. I have removed some of your info, not because it's wrong. The stuff about what projectiles the movie firearm fires, etc., is just not relevant to the article. But, I appreciated learning it; I'm a big Blade Runner fan myself. Cheers.--Gothemasticator 17:54, October 16, 2010 (UTC)
Fine with me if it makes the article slick. That was probably a more expedient solution than correcting the description in the first place. After all, visitors can probably just follow the links if they really want to know... Dammit, sign my posts! --http://brianranzoni.com 18:02, October 16, 2010 (UTC)
