Iron is the title of a group of common pistols in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured exclusively by Jakobs and features the Jakobs barrel.

Usage & Description

Irons have very high damage and accuracy and are suitable for virtually any situation. The fire cap on an Iron is severely reduced compared to other Jakobs revolvers, although this is only noticeable with a macro, modded controller or fast trigger finger.
