NYLON – Turnbull Restoration & Manufacturing Co. of Bloomfield, New York has purchased several vintage collections of historic rifles, shotguns and handguns over the beginning of 2016 and is now offering these for sale to the public.
According to a press release from Turnbull, these guns are some of the most iconic names in American history as well as the history of firearms in general.

“We have been buying up collections as a matter of business given our passion for restoring classic firearms,” said CEO and Founder Doug Turnbull in a press release from Turnbull. “Among those collections we have found some real gems of serious collectible guns. We know our customers share our love for vintage firearms and made the decision to offer them for sale. We wanted our customers to have a chance to own these pieces of history.”
All of these have been inspected by the Turnbull staff for quality, function and authenticity. They said that all of the guns have great bores and are by and large functionally sound. Many have been fully restored by world-class craftsmen. The full inventory can be found on the Turnbull website here. Turnbull will accept trade-ins for these firearms.

We have teamed up with a major American gun maker to produce a Turnbull quality gun to Turnbull standards including our signature case color hardened finish. I probably should not go any further, except to add that our entire team is excited to offer a Turnbull at a very reasonable price.”
