For the Red Dead Redemption variant, see Double-action Revolver.

The Double-action Revolver is a weapon featured in Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online.


Red Dead Redemption 2

The D.D. Packenbush Double-action Revolver is a fast-firing weapon with relatively low damage. The advanced mechanism prevents the need to cock, at the cost of a heavy trigger pull and lower accuracy. The quick fire rate makes this a good choice for mounted combat. This gun has an ammo capacity of six rounds, and can use Regular, High Velocity, Split Point, Express and Explosive revolver ammo.


The Double-action Revolver may be purchased from all gunsmiths from the start of Chapter 3 onwards, after the mission "A Strange Kindness".

The player can also obtain one during the Homestead Robbery offered by Sean MacGuire (also in Chapter 3), where it is found in a gun case hidden under one of the bunk beds in Lonnie's Shack.



  • The weapon is based on the Colt Model 1892 Army & Navy Revolver.
  • If the player has an Honor rank of -4 or lower (25% or less on the Honor bar), a unique Gunslinger Ebony grip becomes available for this weapon, obtainable from any Gunsmith.
    • The player may also be able to purchase this grip with the corresponding amount of high Honor, likely as a result of an oversight.
  • This weapon is the sidearm of choice for Javier Escuella. His version is silver-plated with black engravings, and has a black grip embellished with silver carvings. Additionally, its barrel is slightly longer than that of the regular Double-action Revolver and it makes its own distinct sound.
  • Dutch van der Linde uses a pair of these while he is in Guarma.
  • Micah Bell's signature weapon is a pair of customised Double-action Revolvers.
  • The only way to unlock the Gold customisation is to complete a scavenger hunt in Grand Theft Auto Online, which was added by said game's Doomsday Heist DLC.
