關於the German-made version of this weapon present in Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics,參見9mm Mauser
Chinese Pistol

The Chinese Pistol is a relic of the United States' war with China, an event that triggered the Great War, that can still be found in the Capital Wasteland. The gun is a Shansei C96 or Type 17, in our timeline a higher-caliber variant of the original German Mauser. It is arguably the weakest pistol in the game and is nearly useless as a weapon. It's only uses are for its value in trade (it is pound-for-pound the most valuable of all conventional weapons), and for repairing its unique incendiary version, the Zhu-Rong v418 Chinese Pistol. It has worse spread than the N99 10mm Pistol, holds less ammunition in a magazine, and its ammo pool is the same as the N99, so it cannot even be used as an "out of ammo" backup weapon.


  • Zhu-Rong v418 Chinese Pistol - While the Zhu-Rong does the same base amount of damage, it is unique due to the fact that it fires incendiary rounds, which deal fire damage over time.


  • Raiders throughout the wasteland occasionally carry them.
  • Most traders usually have one or two Chinese Pistols in their inventory.
  • One can be found in the Museum of Dave, located inside the Republic of Dave.
  • In the Operation: Anchorage add-on, Chinese Pistols are carried by the Crimson Dragoons. They are not re-skinned but have near infinite durability. They can be obtained by using the inventory glitch during the simulation.

Behind the scenes编辑

  • It is one of the few weapons where the PC has an animation showing the clip being retrieved from their pocket.
  • The Chinese Pistol resembles the C96 Mauser, nicknamed the "Broom Handle," which was copied by the Chinese and produced as the Shansei Type 17.
  • The Mauser, after which this weapon is based was used as base for several Sci-Fi weapons, including Star Wars' Han Solo's Blaster.
  • In Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, Mad Max uses one early in the movie.


Chinese Pistols only appear in Fallout 3.
