Turnbull Manufacturing will continue restoring vintage firearms, but has announced plans to expand the manufacturing operations. This expansion in firearm manufacturing prompted the company to change its name from Doug Turnbull Restoration, Inc. to Turnbull Mfg. Co., Inc. New company name, same great company!

Doug Turnbull Restoration, Inc. has officially changed its name to Turnbull Mfg. Co., Inc. as of April 1, 2010. The name change reflects a shift in Turnbull's operations where they are now manufacturing many lines of new firearms that are exact replicas of many of the vintage model guns that they are renowned for restoring.

Given their reputation as a world leader in the vintage firearms market, Turnbull Manufacturing has been sought out by several other gun manufacturers to provide their signature color case hardening, bluing and other sophisticated finishes for limited edition and collectible vintage style firearms. Turnbull can provide finishing work done through the original processes and have them appear better than the originals.

Company President Keith VanOrman will expand the gun restoration operations to meet increased customer demand, along with cultivating new products and markets in collaboration with their firearms manufacturing clients.

"During his tenure here, Keith has been instrumental in developing relationships with many of the large gun manufacturers who we collaborate with on special edition firearms," said founder and CEO Doug Turnbull. "Keith's expertise in manufacturing operations and efficiency has been a tremendous asset to our company and will help ensure our future growth."

Turnbull Manufacturing Company also has their own lines of manufactured vintage firearms which include Winchester-style rifles, Colt-style single action revolvers and their .470 and .475 Turnbull rifles widely used for big game hunting. Turnbull manufactured firearms offer modern ballistic performance while retaining vintage firearm appearances - affording today's hunters the ability to "shoot history" with improved accuracy.

Turnbull Manufacturing Company was chosen to produce the commemorative firearms given to the winners of the April and November 2010 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at Texas Motor Speedway. For these race winners, Turnbull has created three pairs of Turnbull 45 Colt style single action revolvers and two Turnbull model 1886 deluxe take down rifles. All these firearms will feature specialty finishes and unique engraving, along with the Texas Motor Speedway logo, and the tag line "The Great American Speedway." VanOrman and Turnbull will present the firearms to the race winners in Victory Lane.
