Manufacturer’s Description

Taylor’s Runnin’ Iron is a light, 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.

The Runnin’ Iron is available in three barrel lengths (i.e., 3.5″, 4.75″, 5.5″) and chambered in .357 Magnum (and therefore .38 Special) or .45 LC. Offered with a stainless steel or blue finish, other Runnin’ Iron features include:

  • 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.

    Does the Running Iron revolver have a 2 click, or 4 click cocking mechanism?

    They now have a three click because Uberti has the floating firing pin safety which does allow you to safely carry all 6 chambers loaded, but with the cost of that first “safety “ click.
