The tour started with a fantastic speech by our Owner and CEO Doug Turnbull, where he described how Turnbull Manufacturing made its roots and how we got to where we are today. From there, people were able to walk through the production floor to see how each step of a restoration and gun manufacturing takes place. Turnbull staff members, Doug Turnbull, John Gligora and Sam Chappell, explained the process that takes place at each work station and showed examples of actual work that is currently in production. Each of the Turnbull staff members was able to field specific questions that visitors had, to better explain how and what goes on here and at each step of the process. Many visitors were able to share their experiences and ask questions about guns they are or have built, making this a great learning opportunity for both visitors and us. At the end of the tour, the RIMES group, led by Ken Nelson, Don Miller and Don Allis, treated the Turnbull staff to a very nice Dinner at Mickey Finns, who did a fantastic job with the event.
As well as offering tours of our facility, Turnbull is more than happy to offer companies, or individuals, the opportunity to have a series of Turnbull Model 1911 handguns custom made, when you purchase 25 or more. As part of the customization, we will come out and sit down with you and or your company, to help design a custom gun, just for you or your company. Some custom options include custom engraving patterns, company logos, custom serial numbers and personalized/initialed guns. If anyone has interest in this offer, please contact Tracy Halpin (firstname.lastname@example.org) or John Gligora (email@example.com) at 585-657-6338 for more information.
