Designed in 1898 the Smith and Wesson Model 20, known as the .38 Revolver, is an American police revolver. This is one of the most famous revolvers in history and has been in use since the early 1900's. The revolver is widely used by both police and gangs.


The .38 Revolver, is a six-rounds grey-black revolver, with an average barrel size.

The .38 revolver has much better stopping power than all other handguns but less range and accuracy than the 608 Bull or Desert Eagle,hence it has a lower effective kill distance.

This issue can be partly rectified in multiplayer by attatching a barrel upgrade, but it will still fall short of the 608 bull in distance and accuracy by a considerable amount .

The .38 can be dual wielded with any other handgun that is seen in Max Payne's story in 2012.

Social Club DescriptionEdit

The .38 is the most effective pistol in close quarters and is capable of one-shot kills at point-blank range. Combine it with a long-range dual handed weapon for a very powerful loadout.


In Max Payne's story, the .38 revolver is mostly used by Sao Paulo's gangs, such as the Comando Sombra, who use the revolver as one of their primary handguns and light-weapons, alongside the PT92 and the Micro 9mm.
