Lost Alpha Wiki

The .44 Magnum Revolver is a pistol that appears in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha.

The .44 Magnum is based on a lengthened .44 Special case, loaded to higher pressures for greater velocity (and thus, energy). The .44 Magnum has since been eclipsed in power by the .454 Casull, among others; nevertheless, it has remained one of the most popular commercial large-bore magnum cartridges.
