M44 Callahan by ScrewfaceRomeo M44 Callahan by ScrewfaceRomeo
Designed in the late 21st Century on Earth, the Callahan was an example of early Human experimentation with small-scale mass accelerators. Requiring chemical propellant as well as rails, the Callahan was a monstrously powerful weapon, firing a 14.5mm cartridge that renders it unsurpassed as the most powerful handgun in the world. As the trend shifted towards microcaliber pellets to comply with Citadel Council standards, the M44 was forgotten, abandoned by history in favor of an idea that would ultimately prove less practical.

The weapon would later gain fame, or rather infamy, as a result of it's use by Cerberus's Section 87 "Dark Transcendent" supersoldiers. Selected because it's large caliber, powerful projectiles produced massive permanent cavities and exit wounds which retarded Krogan healing and could be packed with warp detonators powerful enough to effectively neutralize any biotic barrier, the M44 became a symbol of the terror caused by Section 87, and the superhuman abilities of the Dark Transcendents, thanks to the upgraded accelerator rails which produced a recoil force potent enough to break a normal human's arm.
