For the Red Dead Redemption variant, see Mauser Pistol.

The Mauser Pistol is a weapon featured in Red Dead Redemption 2 and in Red Dead Online.


A new import from Germany, the Mühlberg Mauser is a modern semi-automatic pistol with a low damage. The rapid fire rate of this weapon, along with a large ammo capacity, make this a good choice for close range combat, or when surrounded by multiple enemies. This gun has an ammo capacity of ten rounds, and can use Regular, High Velocity, Split Point, Express and Explosive pistol ammo.


The weapon becomes available at the Gunsmith in Saint Denis and Valentine after the completion of "That’s Murfree Country". Alternatively, Angelo Bronte throws one at John Marston during "Revenge is a Dish Best Eaten", which can then be picked up.

In Red Dead Online, the pistol becomes available for purchase after reaching Rank 34.


  • Despite the Mauser Pistol only being available fairly late in the game, the player can obtain a custom version of this weapon, namely Midnight's Pistol, as early as the second chapter.
  • At $600.00, it is the most expensive weapon for purchase on Red Dead Online.
  • The Mauser Pistol is one of two pistols not reloaded through a magazine, instead using stripper clips.
    • Regardless of how much pistol ammo the player has, or how many rounds are left in the gun, a full stripper clip will be shown when this weapon is reloaded.
