DESCRIPTION
This mod adds a fully-automatic .45 Auto Pistol to the game. Functionally, it can be viewed as a counterpart to my Schnellfeuer mod, but intended for red-blooded patriots who would rather die than sully their hands by using filthy Communist weapons. Visually, it is inspired by gun modifications from the 1920s and 30s. The base gun has been given the Fitz Special treatment (bobbed hammer spur and cutaway trigger guard to reduce snags and aid in trigger acquisition), while the fully automatic conversion, Cutts compensator and Thompson gun foregrip are the hallmarks of Hyman S. Lebman, who converted pistols this way for famous Depression-era gangsters such as John Dillinger and Baby Face Nelson.

The weapon has three mods available - a compensator, a forward grip, and extended magazines. Both the compensator and forward grip reduce the weapon's considerable spread, while the extended magazine more than doubles ammunition capacity (bringing it up to 18 rounds). I've added the weapon to all the appropriate form lists so that it counts for all the applicable perks and challenges (Except for 'Way of the Caananite', which would have required me to edit the perk directly, and that could have caused compatibility issues with other mods so I left it alone). It is also considered an improved holdout weapon, so you can sneak it into casinos with a high enough Sneak skill.

All the meshes, with the exception of the forward grip, were made from game assets included in the Honest Hearts DLC. The base gun is the .45 Auto Pistol and the compensator comes from the .45 Auto Submachine Gun. The forward grip mesh and texture come from Listenerr's CFA - Classic Tommy Gun mod and is used with permission.

As of v1.1, the weapon can also be crafted at any workbench with a Repair skill of 55 or higher using a standard .45 Auto Pistol and some Scrap Metal. The Extended Magazine mod can also be crafted with a Repair skill of 30 or higher using Scrap Metal and either 9mm Extended Magazines or 10mm Extended Magazines. Of course, if you're feeling lazy, you can always use the following console command (Substitute ## with the number of the mod in your load order):

player.AddItem ##000ADE 1


INSTALLATION
Extract all the files in the archive to your New Vegas data folder (which is the same folder where FalloutNV.esm is located) and then enable the ESP either in your mod manager of choice, or under "Data Files" in the launcher that runs when you start up New Vegas.
