You're right I had Turnbull restore this Bisley for me. It was made in 1900 and had no known history. It had no broken parts and all appeared to be original. I wanted it to look and function like it just left the factory. So I took it to a gun show where Turnbull had a display, and spoke with Doug Turnbull (also a great guy) who questioned why I wanted it restored and did it have any history. He agreed that he would restore it and I was given an approximate quote of between $4000 and $4500. I left it with them and after many months(10) I got back a beautifully restored gun. The restoration cost me $4100 and I originally paid $1700 for the gun. That's a lot of money and I'm sure more than it's worth now, but I don't care, I have a beautiful gun that will only grow in value as it is handed down in the family.
