The Aries 24-7 is a pistol in Hitman: Absolution.
- "The Aries 24-7 is an unremarkable combat pistol, easily controllable and with a good cyclic rate. It is upstaged by other, more specialized handguns, but remains a viable choice as a sidearm."
This weapon is based upon the real-world Taurus PT 24/7 which is manufactured by Taurus International Firearm Company of Brazil, and was primarily designed as a backup weapon for Law Enforcement officers, and to a limited degree as a weapon suited for the civilian concealed carry market.
The version in the game is based on the 4.25” standard model chambered for .45 ACP rounds, and has a 12 round magazine.
