I remember the original article and how it stopped me dead in my tracks and left my jaw hanging open the way only an unusually beautiful woman generally does.

I believe the kids today would call that gun "Fap Worthy".  Big Grin

Dude, are you saying that that is a PIG??? 
 
It is a "collector's piece"... what good it is, I don't know.  HOWEVER, it IS beautiful.  The wood, the artwork... AMAZING.  Why anyone would want that on a rifle, I'll never understand.  I can't own a rifle I can't bring myself to shoot.  I had a custom 30-06 built... Most beautiful hunting rifle I have ever held... Wood was amazing, it had a special "patina" to the bluing, receiver etchings of hunting scenes... just amazing.  I traded it to a builder for my fireplace in my house because I could not bear to take it to the woods... I fired it 3 times, my gunsmith fired it 3 times before that and the RifleWerks builder fired it 3 times.  Super accurate... under 1/4 inch at 100yds. 
I'm too rough on hardware to own something like that... I can't just look at and I can't bring myself to shoot. 
That AR is one of the most amazing pieces of art I've ever seen... in a rifle... I could never bring myself to purchase it, even if I were wealthy... what purpose would it serve???
I would like to hold it just once, though...

Yes, firearms can be examples of fine artwork thus displaying the very fine interaction of brain and hand.
 
I would certainly like to look at it for real and would promise not to touch. Can't touch anything in the museum also.
 
All my rifles, which I regard as tools, show signs of wear and much use, so something like the Turnbull AR would be beyond my ownership qualifications.

Pretty much how I feel about my new Remington, and it is nothing like this rifle. I am used to my tactical stocks, which look better with dings and a couple different layers of Krylon!

While the standard black or OD AR is indeed a functional pig that AR is truly a WORK of ART and beautiful in every way!  I'm with Dan after several WOWs!  I'd just have to shoot it and puff there goes the investment.
