KEITH "TATER" TATUM

Senior Gunsmith

Tater was born on the naval air base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. He lived overseas until his dad decided it was time to move home…back to Walnut Grove, MS. As a 10 year old in small town Mississippi he was able to run to the woods every day, hunting and fishing…what a dream.

It would not be long before the little boy grew up and began cleaning the locals guns for extra money. His attention to detail landed him a job as a graphic artist; however, he continued to cultivate his gunsmithing skills repairing guns for friends and neighbors.

After 30 years, Tater decided to take the plunge and become a full-time gunsmith/machinist. He has trained in his craft at the Trinidad State Gunsmithing School in Colorado.

With Tater at the helm, The Range’s fully-equipped gunsmithing services include custom/precision rifle building, re-barreling, action truing, and blue printing, stock bedding/fitting, barrel threading, as well as other customer requests. Shotgun work includes opening forcing cones, stock fitting and tactical upgrades.

Trigger jobs, action truing, and overall performance enhancements can be performed on pistols and revolvers.

Stock repair and refinishing, case hardening, and bluing…including rust blue round out his abilities. Tater can also custom-make otherwise unavailable gun parts where practical.

KEN OILSCHLAGER

Firearms Appraiser

A Meridian native and graduate of Ole Miss, Ken’s interest in firearms came at an early age. He was shooting turtles at age 6 and acquired his first vintage rifle …a trapdoor Springfield …when he was in the 4th grade. With limited funds in his early years, he continued his interest in vintage guns by amassing a collection of catalogs from companies dealing in antique and collectable firearms.

Over the years, Ken evolved into an avid collector and hunter. The early interest in just about anything gun-related helped him accumulate the knowledge to become a firearms appraiser and have a knack for finding parts for just about anything that shoots….vintage to modern.

He is a life member and past Treasurer of the German Gun Collectors Association and is an American Gunsmithing Institute Certified Firearms Appraiser.

The Range can provide complete firearm appraisal services for your collection from insurance purposes to estate valuations.

Please check with your insurance agent as most homeowner policies only cover a fraction of the value of a gun collection. Your carrier may require an additional coverage schedule for your firearms, as well as an appraisal, and when settling an estate or selling your personal collection, you need to know the current value.

A recent example is a U.S. Army Model 1911 pistol Ken appraised for a widow who wanted to dispose of her deceased husband’s small gun collection. Several friends of the family wanted to purchase the Model 1911 pistol and it was suggested its value was around $200-$300 Bottom line…Ken’s appraised value of the Model 1911 pistol was $2,000 and it was sold to a private collector the next week!
