Our restoration customers rely on our seasoned gunsmiths to return their classic and antique firearms to factory-new condition. They’ve also entrusted us to perform conversions and upgrades on their collections for the better part of four decades. Our loyal customers turn to us because they know we’ll do this work with the utmost respect and reverence for what their unique firearm means to them.

Below is a sampling of conversions and upgrades offered by Turnbull Restoration. If you have something else in mind, we’re happy to talk to you about your ideas. Download our quote request form today to start your next project.
