Action[edit source]

In firearms terminology, an action is the physical mechanism that manipulates cartridges and/or seals the breech. The term is also used to describe the method in which cartridges are loaded, locked, and extracted from the mechanism.

Therefore it's proper to say that this shotgun has a lever action, rather than to say it has a lever-action mechanic. Kris mailbox 04:04, August 11, 2010 (UTC)

gauge[edit source]

i thought this thing was 10 gauge or at least my friend is

We won't know for sure until the game is released, but for now it's assumed to be 12-gauge since all the other shotguns are as well. Kris mailbox 19:14, August 11, 2010 (UTC)
You have a friend who is a 10 gauge? Lucky, my freind's only a 9mm... - RASICTalk 03:45, August 12, 2010 (UTC)
There's no such thing as a 9mm shotgun. Kris mailbox 13:03, August 12, 2010 (UTC)
There's no such thing as a 9mm assault rifle either. Nitty Tok. 13:22, August 12, 2010 (UTC)
Game-based guns don't have to be real. But he's not talking about a gun from some video game, and a shotgun that could handle 9mm ammo wouldn't be worth a damn for actual shotgun ammo of any gauge. Kris mailbox 13:33, August 12, 2010 (UTC)
Actully I was making a pun on how I had a freind who used 9mm ammo as the orginal comment was in such poor grammar it looked like he was saying his freind used 10 gauge like a gun. - RASICTalk 00:32, August 13, 2010 (UTC)
Hmm, I see what you were trying to do there. Woulda been easier to see if you hadn't mocked his grammar. If you had said "You have a friend that's 10-gauge? Lucky you! My friend is only a 9mm!" I woulda gotten it, assuming that's what you meant. Kris mailbox 00:39, August 13, 2010 (UTC)
Just corrected a bit of my own grammer whilst posting this but that was more or less what it said. But my previous grammar flaws may have offput it quite a bit. - RASICTalk 00:43, August 13, 2010 (UTC)

The Winchester 1887 in 10 gauge has not made since 1901, so 12 gauge is the most likely gauge. - I've owned an Winchester 1887 shotgun for 4 years 03:28, August 12, 2010 (UTC)

Aorry about the bad grammar, anyway my friend owns an original 1887 made by winchester repeating arms dated 1893 in 10 gauge. And nitty there isn't a true 9mm assault rifle but there is the colt 9mm smg which is basically a colt car 15 in 9mm.

Actually, 9mm Assault Rifles exist. The 9x39mm is a russian cartridge developed mainly for special forces usage. Examples of this weapon are the 9A-91 and the VSS Vintorez. And there are kits to convert a Steyr AUG into 9mm, but that's 9mm Para, and doesn't count for this argument.--DreadZer0 12:33, December 5, 2010 (UTC)

Isn't it 20 gauge?[edit source]

In the various E3 vids, in some the player uses the Lever action shotgun, and when seen on the Pip-boy it says it fires 20 gauge rounds.
It should be added, I believe.
Did no one else notice this? :P

I think the sturdy caravan shotgun article says that it to is a 20 gauge. Maybe this Fallout will be 12 gauge free :(. The only problem is that the 1887 was only avalible in 10 and 12 gauge. Of course this is a game, and it wouldn't be that hard to convert the gun to a 20 gauge anyway. 20 gauge should at least cut down on weight in the hardcore mode without to much drop on damage.Billytheboy 18:09, August 24, 2010 (UTC)

wrong info[edit source]

Hunting shotgun, Diner bell, and riot shotgun can all out damage it, cowboy or not. someone correct this page (locked) please?

That's why it says "20 gauges". :P Nitty Tok. 01:49, November 23, 2010 (UTC)

On paper, if you have Cowboy perk, it will outDPS the Hunting Shotgun. In practice however, it still does less damage per shot than the Hunting Shotgun that it sometimes fails to kill a human enemy (such as fiends) in 1 shot. It also has a high spread making it unsuitable for medium range while you can still get away with the Hunting Shotgun with buckshot shells at somewhat longer range. Apart from the Riot Shotgun, the Dinner Bell will also outdamage it. Flaktrooper, December 27, 2010.

Hey, they shotting/ V.A.T.S bug has also been observed on PS3 but needs confirmation. And it won't allow me to edit the section. HALP!

Based on the Winchester Model 1887/1901[edit source]

This weapon is based on the Winchester Model 1887 lever action shotgun, with cut down stock. An updated version of this shotgun appeared in 1901. Copies of this weapon are produced today by Chiappa in Italy in 12GA, as the one in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMafmr2zaDA

this is actuay is a 1903[edit source]

1887 was a black powder round a 1903 was designed for the smokeless powder we use today
