"A true high-velocity handgun, for quick and accurate kills."
―Description from the TBoGT website.[1]

The Pistol .44 is a weapon featured in The Ballad of Gay Tony.


The Ballad of Gay Tony

The pistol .44 is modeled after the AMT Auto Mag, a handgun which was designed to bring the .44 Magnum power to a semi-automatic pistol, making it the first .44 caliber handgun to appear in the HD Universe. The pistol is coloured silver and has a long, thin barrel, a rounded trigger and a wooden grip. The pistol is designed to hold eight rounds per magazine.


The Ballad of Gay Tony

The Pistol .44 is a very powerful pistol thanks to its ammo type. The pistol easily overpowers the Pistol, Combat Pistol and Automatic 9mm in terms of pure power, capable of killing an unarmored NPC with two shots, while it can take up to five shots to kill armored enemies like NOOSE Tactical agents.

It is also highly accurate than other pistols and other firearms, making it an ideal weapon for headshots. However, it has the slowest rate of fire among the GTA IV's handguns due to its recoil. The weapon is reasonably fast when used as a drive-by weapon, being on par with the Combat Pistol, but its fire rate is still an issue against enemies with fully-automatic weapons.

Just like the other two pistols in the game, it is also capable of being used for executions.
