I just came across this, "Turnbull Finished Ruger GP100 – Made to Order."

Maybe some of you've seen 'em, maybe some of you ain't. smile

Pretty cool and on a great revolver platform.

After seeing them online and watching the video, I went ahead reached out to Turnbull and got "put on the list."

The gal, Sara Turnbull, said they're 6-12 months out. frown

May as well get in line now. blush

Drooled over many pictures of Doug Turnbull’s work, but haven’t ever bought anything or had any work done by him. Phenomenal, to say the least! Can’t wait to see pics of it when your’s is done.

Wonderful! Do they also make an action job or is it "just cosmetics"? However, that's true craftsmenship

First rate I'm sure - I'm just not a fan of CCH unless historical. I don't find the finish particularly cosmetically pleasing. That's just me tho.

Glad you're happy but, to me, it seems a little sacrilegious to let Turnbull loose on a Ruger GP 100. Is a Glock 19 next? I guess tastes vary, though.

He has to pay for his airplane gas somehow. He spends a whole lotta time in his Piper Cub traveling the country, and just having a good time. That costs money. He gets the money by employing people and selling stuff. Frankly, that's the best-looking GP-100 I've ever seen (I think they're kinda ugly).

Best looking GP100 to my eye is the half lug barrel with the flat sides on the Match Champion. Except Ruger can't resist using the flats on the barrel as billboards. That Turnbull treatment on a clean barrel Match Champion with the adjustable sights in .44 Special would be nice. Like really nice.

The Lipsey's 5" blued .44 Special, with half-lug was pretty sharp. I'm with ya' on the "barrel as billboards." It detracts from the guns, for sure.

Looks pretty nice. Are they doing any action work, or just the color case hardening?

Just the color case hardening, as far as I know. I didn't even ask about any other work. blush

It’s not often you see Rugers being referred to as “purty” but that one’s pretty close! 😁 I like the contrast between the CCH and the blued surfaces.

I am on his weekly mailer and he had them in stock not long ago. I have a couple of custom OM Ruger's that he did the case color on and a couple that he did with Ruger via Talo. There were 500 45 Colt Bisley's and 1000 SBH's made.
