Ironshod Firearms is a weapon development and manufacturing company, with a facility in the town of Hope. Their motto is "How do you like them apples?".
A recording found at the Ponyville factory hints that Ironshod is run by the extended Apple family. Ironshod Firearms was commissioned by Applejack to create Little Macintosh for her in memory of her deceased brother, and was made as a more powerful variant of the Scoped .44 Revolver. Ironshod also used vending machines to distribute ammo, specifically Ironshod's Ammo Emporium machines.
The stallion Trottenheimer is found dead inside an Ironshod Research and Development facility. He had possibly been working there on his private project, Project Starfall, for Goldenblood. He is found with the unique and powerful weapon, Trottenheimers Folly.

Appears in New Pegas as a double-barrelled 10-gauge shotgun, with an internal ten-round magazine feeding both barrels via pump-action. Very few examples are known to exist, possibly only one or two.
IF-100 "Brown Betty" - Light Howitzer, 120mm. Modified power armor, as well as great personal strength and endurance, are required for this to be pony-portable.
IF-100 "Thunderhoof" - Anti-Materiel Rifle, .50 caliber. Shares an IF designation with the Brown Betty, possibly as an attempt to confuse zebra spies.
NOTE: This list is by no means complete or exhaustive.
- Given that Ironshod may have been run by the Apple family, it isn't a stretch to think that Ironclad might also have been owned by the Apple family, especially since Braeburn is mentioned in both visited locations, indicating he is a high-ranking executive or even the possible owner.
- It can be inferred that most of the pre-War weapons in the Wasteland were created by them.
- They created the unique Scoped .44 Revolver, Little Macintosh.
