Description

This six-shot revolver with its double action and swing out cylinder makes it look the part. But looks is not all, it also performs admirably, so if you only need six shots for six enemies this is the revolver for you.

History

The M1917 Revolver (formally United States Revolver, Caliber .45, M1917) was a U.S. six-shot revolver of .45 ACP caliber. It was adopted by the U.S. Army in 1917 to supplement the standard M1911 .45 ACP semi-automatic pistol during World War I. Afterwards, it was primarily used by secondary and non-deployed troops. There were two variations of the M1917, one made by Colt and the other made by Smith & Wesson.

Gameplay

The M1917 is a double-action American revolver which chambers six .45 ACP (11.43×23mm) rounds in its swing-out cylinder and has the ability to 2-hit kill using the United Defense Super P+ ammunition. It serves as an excellent side arm for Infantrymen, Recons and Tankers alike. It is by default, a 3 hit kill to the torso.

M1917 Stats.png

Pros

  • Damage: Slightly higher than the M1911, but will still require three shots.
  • Accuracy: It's accurate at close range, but rapid dropoff in damage.
  • 2 Hit Kill: Modded with the United Defence Super P+

Cons

  • Rate of fire: From the start it has the lowest of all pistols, can be countered by modding it.
  • Magazine: With only six rounds every bullet counts
  • Slow reload: Few rounds and a slow reload does not go well together in a firefight.
  • Clicking to shoot immediately after you have fired your last bullet in the cylinder will cause your character to reload only 1 bullet instead of continuously reloading
