Clark Long Heavy Slide

Post by Axehandle on Sun Dec 24, 2017 3:27 pm

There was a question a while back about a "Heavy Slide" Clark custom. This is a "Clark Long Heavy Slide."  A Clark Heavy Slide looked the same but with a standard 5 inch barrel.  This one was built by Jim Clark in May of 1974.. At that point in time there were no 6 inch 1911 slides.  Clark took two slides and made one.  Held in the light just right you can see the weld line. 

Built on a series 70 Colt with a full length Bomar rib.  Soft recoil and X ring accurate.... A piece of bullseye history.  Plan to send this one out for a little slide to frame tightening up with the stipulation that the 40+ year old patina will be untouched.  I'll shoot it but it will never be a match gun for me.

My first wad gun was a Clark Long Heavy Slide.  I still have it and they are great guns. Mine still has the original barrel and it shoots great.  If your shoots X ring, it does not need tuning and I would not let anyone touch it.
