Bolt Action Pistol (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
Bolt Action Pistol
Martial Ranged Weapons
A bolt action pistol is a heavy pistol that has an unusually rugged design which offers a very high integral strength in comparison to other modern firearms, allowing it to chamber very powerful rifle-sized magnum cartridges. On impact, it delivers several times more kinetic energy to a target than similarly-sized pistols, inflicting grievous damage. The drawbacks of its design are that it has a lot of recoil for a handgun and it must be manually reloaded after every single shot. Bolt-action pistols are rarely seen weapons, only typically appealing to the narrow niche group of individuals who desire extremely precise target handguns.
