double action or single action?[edit source]

It says this is a double action. I thought this gun was a single action pistol. I can't remember exactly but doesn't courier pull the hammer back manually after each shot? Zac hemker 15:16, May 28, 2011 (UTC)

This is done with most revolvers in the game. A double action revolver can be cocked like a single action revolver before firing or by pulling the trigger. Cocking the hammer reduces how much you have to pull the trigger before firing.

I understand that, but how is it used in the game? And if the courier does cock the hammer after each shot, how do we know that it's a double action at all? Zac hemker 01:37, June 2, 2011 (UTC)

Never does the Courier's hand go anywhere near the hammer. It's double action.--With care and happiness, Supermutantslayer450' YOU. LOSE. 21:07, June 5, 2011 (UTC)

Wrong Sound Effect?[edit source]

The sound effect the Ranger Sequoia makes is that of the .44 Magnum, isn't it supposed to sound like the Hunting Revolver!? 20:33, June 24, 2011 (UTC)

Good point. I could tell you how to fix this in the GECK it would be really easy. an0my(talk) 19:17, September 26, 2011 (UTC)

Bug?[edit source]

whenever i take the Ranger off of the chief Hanlon at Camp Golf.i will lose karma every time i pick it up and drop it a bug?,or is it supposed to do that? Elite 20:15, July 30, 2011 (UTC)

You're stealing therefore you lose karma. an0my(talk) 19:16, September 26, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah its a bug, you could try to sell it then buy it back that should fix it, if not than i have no other ideas--Chargersphinx 01:55, September 29, 2011 (UTC)

Sequoia?[edit source]

Like it says in the "Behind the Scenes" log, it says Sequoia is known as the california redwood tree. Could the NCR(who happen to be based out of Cali) have used surviving redwoods for the grip? Sounds reasonable to me. --Tactical Gamer 04:36, August 6, 2011 (UTC)

It's probably just a reference to california where they originated i doubt there are any surviving sequoia trees--Chargersphinx 01:57, September 29, 2011 (UTC)

Maximum Damage Potential[edit source]

With Cowboy, The Professional, Better Criticals, Hand Loader SWCs and Hollow Points. It will do 90 damage per hit and a total of 195(390 sneak attack) critical damage while ignoring 6 DT. 129 Damage and 229(458 sneak attack) critical damage with Hollow Points, while increasing DT by 3x. an0my(talk) 19:19, September 26, 2011 (UTC)

Very Competitive with the Brush Gun[edit source]

Pros: Highly accurate (0.01 spread vs Brush Gun's 0.06,) Higher Crit Multiplier (x1 vs x1.5) an0my(talk) 19:19, September 26, 2011 (UTC)

Uhh, no. The brush gun has 0.01 spread; the sequoia has 0.6 spread, making it somewhat uncompetitive against the brush gun. It also has more ammo per full mag, so it cn do more overall damage. --Bottletopman 11:08, October 8, 2011 (UTC)
The Ranger Sequoia only win against Brush Gun in one category; it can be fully reloaded in 3s while the Brush Gun must be reloaded round by round. However, the Brush Gun (not counting the Medicine Stick which is even better) wins in everything else. Flaktrooper, October 27, 2011.

Durability[edit source]

I think it should be pointed out that the durability on the Ranger Sequoia is much lower than the Hunting Revolver, since it seems this is part of the reason why it is so much less valuable. Using things like built to destroy and custom ammo exacerbates the problem cartoonishly, so this makes it something as significant as the value or damage when taking the merits of this gun into consideration. (I'm doing a revolvers only run through and the Sequoia was the only weapon I brought with me into Zion Canyon. The frequency which with it had to be maintained for optimum performance was a bit exasperating.)

real world variant?[edit source]

anyone know what gun this was based on? i added an image but someone removed it without good reasoning. --God weapon weilder 02:42, November 16, 2011 (UTC)

Without good reasoning? Because there totally aren't several editor's notes on the page specifically saying that Magnum Research BFR references will be removed. Feel free to brush up on the site policies before trying to talk about reasoning. User:Great_MaraMessage 02:44, November 16, 2011 (UTC)

hey, guess what, they are not there.--God weapon weilder 02:46, November 16, 2011 (UTC)

Look again. User:Great_MaraMessage 02:52, November 16, 2011 (UTC)

i hate to inform you, but when you use the "add image" button, that warning does not appear, it only appears when you edit the entire page.--God weapon weilder 01:12, November 17, 2011 (UTC)
