Turnbull Restoration & Manufacturing Co. Open Range Revolver
The Shootout at the O.K. Corral was a gunfight on October 26, 1881, in Tombstone, Arizona Territory. The fight did not actually take place at the O.K. Corral, but in a vacant lot down the street from the rear entrance to the O.K. Corral. Although only three men were killed during the gunfight, it is generally regarded as the most famous gunfight in the history of the Old West.
These Turnbull Restoration & Manufacturing Co. open Range revolvers give new meaning to 100% engraving coverage. Even the muzzle of the barrel, face of the cylinder and side of the front sight blade are engraved. Using the “Shoot Out at the OK Coral” as a theme these revolvers are custom engraved and gold inlaid to the highest degree.
There is extensive gold wire inlay work on the barrel, cylinder & ejector rod housing. The hammer features very delicate flush gold scroll inlays. The top of the backstrap is gold inlaid and engraved “OK Corral” and butt of the revolver is also gold inlaid and engraved with “Tombstone”.
The grips are one piece ivory. The date of the original shoot out and the names of the three men who were killed during the gun fight are scrimshawed into the grips. You will notice that the two guns in this set have the names and dates scrimshawed on opposite sides of the grips so when displayed in a fitted case both sides of the grips are legible.
Both guns are “in the white” with the only metal finishing being the Nitre Bluing on the trigger, screw, cylinder base pin & ejector rod head.
