This mod modifies the Lever Action Rifle to use .44 Ammo instead of the default 7.62 ammo. Now compatible with Alpha 21.
All item packs and quest reward bundles that give the Lever Action Rifle have been modified to include .44 ammo instead of the 7.62 ammo.
The base damage of the Lever Action Rifle has been slightly reduced to keep it from being too OP. The damage of an unmodded Lever Action Rifle with no associated perks is slightly higher than when using the 7.62 ammo but slightly lower than the comparable tier .44 handguns. No other changes have been made to the weapon.
This mod can be added to or removed from existing saves without any known critical side effects. It should be noted that if this mod is added to or removed from an existing save, any existing Lever Action Rifles may lose whatever ammo is currently loaded into them and that ammo will not be returned to the player.
This mod should work with any other mods that do not alter the Lever Action Rifle or .44 Magnum ammo.
If you prefer to leave the standard (7.62) Lever Action Rifle unchanged, you can download a standalone version, the Cowboy Rifle, that adds a new .44 version in conjunction with the standard Lever Action Rifle. You will then have both options. This standalone version can be downloaded from the alternate download link below.
