Like Callahan and Mega Magnus, Iron Slug alludes to the Dirty Harry series. The films Magnum Force and Sudden Impact are referenced in the item description.
The Iron Slug has been in the game since it launched (release 2011-04-04). Its recipe was changed in the King Krogmo's Coliseum update (release 2011-08-02). Its knockback was changed in the Mission update (release 2012-02-22). Shortly thereafter, designer Nick Popovich stated that the Iron Slug would be improved "in an upcoming patch" which was implemented as part of the Gunner update (release 2014-12-03).
