SK Guns®, the Nation’s only limited-edition, series-driven production manufacturer, is honored to announce its contribution of more than $20,000 in support of the National Wild Turkey Federation’s conservation research mission.
On Feb. 18, 2023, at the NWTF’s Annual Convention and Sport Show in Nashville, SK Customs donated two sets of custom designed and engraved firearms, including a Henry® Golden Boy Silver in .22LR and a new model Smith & Wesson® 1911 chambered in 45ACP to help raise funds for conservation in celebration of the NWTF’s 50th Anniversary.
“At SK Customs, we find it vital to support the outdoor community and devote resources and funding to organizations such as the NWTF,” said Simon Khiabani, owner and founder of SK Guns. “Thanks to the convention’s Grand National Live Auction, we were able to help raise more than $20,000 to fund research and conservation efforts and enhance development opportunities in the overall firearm and outdoor industry through our SK Gives Back initiative.”
Since 1973, wild turkey populations have risen from 1.3 million to more than 6 million, and the NWTF has conserved or enhanced more than 22 million acres of wildlife habitat, invested more than $500 million in conservation and outreach efforts, and invested more than $8 million in wild turkey research. Customers can now show their support of NWTF’s mission to continue driving wildlife conservation, forest resiliency and robust recreational opportunities throughout the U.S. by pre-ordering the collectible set.
