Clark Long Heavy Slide, value?

Post by SmokinNJokin on 12/28/2017, 4:23 am

Gentlemen,
I found a long heavy slide locally and have contacted the seller to take a look and possibly buy/trade for it. It has the full length bomar rib. What are these worth? What is a fair price depending on conditions? What did you guys pay for your heavy slides?
Thanks,
Andrew

A question with many answers.  I've seen them go for as low as $1500 and most times higher than that.  You can check when it was made by checking the date stamped on the underside of the slide on the firing pin housing; that will at least give you an age of the pistol.  Sometimes you get lucky on price.  One of the guys here got .38 Special regular Heavy Slide at the Gander Mountain, before it closed, for $900.  They took it in on trade thinking it was a .38 Super.  They did not know what it was.  Before Clark stopped making them, they were priced at around $3800 for a complete gun.

You see them on gunbroker very often .  1700 to 2200 for a 45.  38s run higher

I picked up my 25-2 revolver at Cabelas. They had it listed as a 45 Colt. Sometimes those guys are clueless.

picked mine up , used but not overly abused,  from an estate I bought and flipped (I am a dealer) a few years ago, 

I cannot remember what I had appraised that gun at, however the estate also included a new in the box (keithsville addresss iirc) long heavy in 38 ,  that we sold for $2000 I think,, on gunbroker

as I said, it has been a few years so not 100% sure that was the selling price

Maybe there is some collector interest now, but I'm not certain. They had advantages when iron sights ruled, like longer sight radius and a reportedly a little better accuracy. With optics and the accuracy being obtained with five inch 1911's, they might be a fun gun to play with, but they are no longer valued as match pistols by top shooters.
