The '''IMM Austin''' is the most common firearm Weapons in Deus Ex|weapon in ''Deus Ex''.

The IMM Austin is a powerful sidearm used by paramilitary forces all over the world in 2052. It is a semi automatic with a single-stack magazine which uses the Ammunition auto cartridge.

By 2072, the 10mm IMM Austin has been generally replaced by Mako Ballistics' Pistol_(DX2)|9mm pistol.

It's generally an average weapon if completely unmodified; its accuracy makes it difficult to aim past short range (if you haven't upgraded your Pistol skills to ''Advanced''); its small magazine makes it difficult to kill multiple opponents before having to reload, and its recoil makes it difficult to fire follow-up shots with good accuracy. A vanilla 10mm pistol will serve its purpose as a sidearm, but is inefficient as a primary weapon.

Hovewer, if the pistol is upgraded, it can be extremely deadly. Accuracy upgrades will make the it almost as accurate as a Sniper rifle (DX)|sniper rifle, clip mods can give it a max of 11 rounds per magazine, recoil reducers can make it easy to fire quick follow-up shots, and a scope can turn it into a long-range weapon. An upgraded pistol can be extremely powerful as a primary or secondary weapon, but it has two drawbacks: 10mm ammo becomes rare near the end of the game, and the pistol cannot be silenced.
