— Official description
The Stallion (Russian: Стэллион) is a handgun that was imported into Russia by Tom's company before World War III. It's an American-made pistol that has been heavily modified to suit the needs of a survivor in the ruined city of Vladivostok.
A pre-War American pistol produced by the New Richmond Arsenal in Virginia that originally used the rare (outside of the USA) .45 ACP cartridge, the Stallion and weapons like it were an uncommon sight in Russia even before World War III.
These weapons were imported into Russia by an American gun company, with Tom acting as the company's local representative. Together with Klim, who was hired locally to provide security for the warehouses, Tom survived the War and took advantage of the large stockpile of guns now at his disposal to gain a position of power in Vladivostok.
They have since been rechambered for the .44 Magnum cartridges common amongst Russian survivors, and have become a relatively common sight in Vladivostok. Sam is provided with a Stallion and a Sammy by Danila, Tom's personal gunsmith, after he agrees to track down the Captain for Tom and his men.
Variants and Customization
The Stallion has the five standard upgrade slots most weapons have, with three options available for each one of them. Unlike other handguns, however, it can not be converted into a carbine/rifle, It's possible to turn it into a fully automatic pistol with high capacity drum magazine, which is devastating at close range.

- The coin pressed into the light grip of the gun is a 1943 Mercury dime.
- The Stallion is based on the Colt M1911 pistol, one of the most successful pistol designs of the 20th century.
- Despite the modifications descriptions, the Stallion's magazine capacity is 7, 15, and 28 with each respective mod. The figure given in their description seems to assume that there is a round already chambered, as similar to the Kalash and Bastard if a Stallion is reloaded before the magazine is completely emptied the chambered round will not be removed.
