Game information


"Well, Russ, it's official. There is NOTHING left of your gun in this gun. This is just... this is MY gun."
Alyx Vance[src]

The Pistol is one of three weapons wielded by Alyx Vance in Half-Life: Alyx.


The Pistol is a futuristic M1911 given to Alyx by Russell. It features an LED ammo counter on the grip and a muzzle compensator. It will make a beeping noise when the final round in the magazine is chambered and will emit a red light at the rear of the weapon, visible to the shooter, when empty. Fully upgraded, the Pistol resembles Alyx’s Gun, however the fully upgraded Pistol and the Alyx Gun still have many differences, hinting that by the time of Half-Life 2, Alyx has modified the Pistol even further. The magazines for the Pistol are able to store 10 rounds compared to a regular M1911s 7 rounds, and its rate of fire is dependent on the shooter’s trigger finger. Combine Ordinals and Combine Grunts carry magazines for this weapon, which could mean that it is a Combine manufactured weapon issued to soldiers. The specific Pistol given to the player by Russell has had its serial number filed off. The logo "Le Clarion" is etched on one side of the slide and the text "Civil Protection Annex 19-19191" is etched on the other.


The pistol can be modified to include various attachments using a Combine Fabricator. Listed below are all upgrades for the pistol along with their description and their Resin cost.[1]

Upgrade Description Resin Cost
Reflex Sight Adds a reflex sight to help with aiming and pinpoint weak spots of enemies 10
Burst Fire Adds a toggle which switches between semi-automatic and burst-fire shooting 20
Bullet Reservoir Adds a capacity of 10 rounds in a magazine on right side of the pistol which automatically loads rounds into itself and chambers them in order. Permits 20 rounds, 10 in the regular magazine, 10 in the self loading side magazine 30
Laser Sight Adds a laser sight to help with aiming 35
