The serial number is CS002###.

I am not a Colt or handgun expert at all, but here goes. 

Plugging the SN into Colt's website returns this "1969 SUPER .38 MODEL".  Since, according to Wikipedia, the Series 70 didn't start until 1970, this gun would predate the Series 70. Beyond that, I don't know.

Also, there is only one magazine with the gun, but I called Clark and they have extra magazines in stock.

1969 makes it highly likely its a Jim Clark Gun.

?????

Stippling, Clark signature & address engraved, The short rib w/tuner are standard Clark features. The rib/tuner was used by Jim on a lot of his guns, 45 & 38 during those yrs. I owned a 45 exactly like this. I have never seen this tuner/rib on another smith's gun although there might be some.

A call to Clark will establish the history. AND they would SHOOT!!

1969 establishes nothing as to it's pedigree.

Look under the slide at the rail the disconnector runs on.  There is a month and year stamped there.  That is when the gun was built by Clark.  There are people out there that collect these things.

Clark Custom Colt 38 Special

Post by Heavythumb on Wed Sep 30, 2015 1:35 pm

I bought the gun.  I had a red dot scope mounted on it, cast some bullets, made some reloads, tweaked the reloads, got six magazines, and shot a 238, 275, and a 276 in Bullseye competition the past three weeks.

Shooting the gun is sweeeeeeet.

I also shoot a .32 Walthers Expert for center fire Bullseye competition.

I think I will be using the Clark Custom for my primary center fire caliber.

BTW, I'm not a very good shot.  It is off to the range for me, we have a .22 Bullseye match tonight.

Thank you jhoward13 for posting this gun.
