Design and Performance


The Pistol in GTA V is based on the Taurus PT92AF. This weapon has the Hawk & Little lettering as well as the logo on the body. The Pistol also has a few features from the Colt M1911. This firearm has a mag capacity of 12 rounds which can be upgraded to 16 rounds with the extended clip.


A flashlight and suppressor can also be attached to the Pistol. It has a small portion of a picatinny rail at the front for the flashlight attachment.


(The Pistol being held in first person perspective)


The Pistol is a very basic weapon and is useful only in the early stages of the game. The fire rate of this weapon is higher while clicking instead of holding down the fire button. It can kill enemies with armor in 3-5 shots to the body while pedestrians can be taken down in 2 shots as well.


The accuracy of this weapon is quite good for a handgun. It can be used in close to medium range gunfights.

Trivia


  • The Pistol and Rocket Launcher are the only GTA weapons to appear in every GTA game to date.

  • In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, if a law enforcement officer is wasted then revived by a paramedic, they will automatically equip a pistol if the player climbs on the top of a vehicle while having a wanted level.

  • Unlike Franklin, Michael and Trevor already have the Pistol in both of their inventories when unlocking them both as playable characters. Franklin himself does not acquire one until his second mission.

  • The Pistol from Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars has the same sound from the 9mm Pistol in the first Max Payne, also published by Rockstar Games.
