7 Days To Die Pistol
The pistol is a very handy short-medium range weapon. It uses 9mm Rounds and has a magazine capacity of 15 bullets. If you got the right ammunition with you, the pistol will reload automatically or you can also manually reload by pressing R.
This semi-automatic handgun can be found around the 7 Days To Die world by looting Toilets, Containers, Loot Bags, Guns Safes and Weapons Bag. You can also buy it from a Trader or craft it by collecting all the required items.
Combat Using Pistol
The Pistol is a very effective weapon for dealing with groups of zombies in 7 Days To Die. The decent-sized magazine can be further increased by adding a Magazine Extender Mod. Normal zombies can be killed with 2 bullets to the head while a Bloated Walker Zombie takes 3 bullets.
You can even try stealth combat since the pistol has a short 15 meters noise range. If other zombies are not nearby you can try a sneak attack and take out zombies with headshots. The pistol can be made into an even more lethal weapon by adding some of the mods mentioned below.

Crafting A Pistol
The Following items are required to craft a Pistol in 7 Days 2 Die:
|Workbench||Pistol Schematic / Gun Slinger Level 1|
The above-mentioned items list will help you craft a pistol of quality level 1. As you increase your GUn Slinger Perk you can craft higher quality Pistols. The item requirement for higher quality Pistols are as follows:
|Quality 1||Quality 2||Quality 3||Quality 4||Quality 5|
Pistols eventually wear out with every use. At some point it becomes dysfunctional and you cannot use it anymore. You need a Repair Kit to fix a worn-out pistol. How fast a pistol in 7 Days To Die degrades depends on its quality. The higher the quality the longer it will last without you having to prepare it.
When you scrap a pistol, you get three handgun parts. These are vital parts for when you want to craft your own pistol in 7 days to die. The higher your skill level in using a pistol the higher quality pistol you can craft. But the higher the quality the more handgun parts you will need to craft a pistol.
