What happend to rick harrison friend shawn from the pawn stars?

In 2012 Sean Rich stopped appearing on Pawn Stars. Apparently the History Channel wanted Sean to sign an exclusive contact with them that would keep him from appearing elsewhere. He says they didn't want to reimburse him very well for his time and expertise so he chose to step down. Sean says he does not blame his friends, the Harrisons, only the network and production company.

Rick often called Sean to determine the authenticity of antique firearms. He is considered to be an expert in antique gunsmithing, arms and armor and is the owner/operator of Tortuga Trading Inc.

In October 2014, Sean surprised Pawn Stars fans by returning to the show.

Tortuga Trading Inc specializes in antique arms and armor especially from the 16th thru 19th century. The store is located at:

  • 2240 Encinitas Blvd Suite D-228
    Encinitas CA, 92024
    Telephone: 760-271-5457
