The Taylor's & Co. Runnin' Iron is a light, efficient, balanced single-action pistol designed specifically for the sport of Mounted Shooting. Inspired by mounted shooter and Wild West entertainer Denny Chapman and designed by third-generation Wild West showman and gunsmith Deke Rivers, the Runnin' Iron has been created by cowboys with years of black powder blank shooting experience in the harshest environments. Offered in stainless steel or blued finish, the Runnin' Iron features a low and wide hammer spur; checkered, one-piece, gunfighter-style grips in walnut or black polymer; a wide trigger; a second-generation transverse cylinder pin latch, a crescent-style ejector rod; a reduced-power spring kit; and extra clearance at the front and rear of the cylinder. These features make the Runnin' Iron the lightest and most efficient mounted shooting gun on the market. The deluxe edition Runnin Iron comes with custom tuning; a custom hammer and base pin springs; a trigger pull set at three pounds; jig-cut, positive angles on all triggers and sears for crisp, reliable action; a coil-loaded hand; and a wire bolt.
