— In-game description

The Revolver is a sidearm that takes six .45 ACP cartridges in a .45 ACP moon clip, and also takes M1911 Mag. converted into .45 ACP in DayZ.

The Revolver causes moderately high damage of 4500 blood, has moderate recoil and when fired, has an audible range of up to 52.8 meters from the shooter's position. The effective range of this weapon is up to 100 meters.

The Revolver can kill a player in two to three shots to the body, and as with all weapons and ammunition in DayZ, can kill in one shot to the head. It has greater accuracy compared to the M1911.

The Revolver is a common sidearm that has a 0.72%% chance of spawning in Residential and some low yield Military loot spawns, and a 0.61% of spawning in Supermarkets.[1] The spawn chances are equal to 9 out of 1,250 and 61 out of 10,000.

The Revolver and the M1911 use the same yellow box model for ammunitions. Looking closely, Revolver ammunition has a red strip, whereas M1911 ammunition has a green strip. A player can right click on the ammunition in the inventory, in order to convert .45 ACP ammunition into an M1911 Mag. and vice versa.
