For your consideration, an early Jim Clark Sr. Longslide build.

Commercial Colt 1911 #313523C frame built 1967, marked 6-68 on disconnector rail by Clark. The current 'Clark Custom Guns' still makes these and charge $1,695.00 to do the conversion on provided gun.



Bo-Mar tuner rib, narrowed mirror polished hammer, radiused and mirror polished firing pin stop. Short crisp trigger with Frank S. aluminum bronze trigger shoe. Old-school narrowed halfcock ledge on hammer and corresponding slot in disconnector. Very short reset with no drag on halfcock notch. Comes with 1 magazine. Aggressive tiger tooth stippling and original Colt gold medallion walnut grips.

Very little appreciable wear. I purchased it from the original owner, who had not shot it much since the 70's. There is hand wear/fading to the bluing and wear from where it sat in the gun box, but mechanically it is perfect. Its actually pretty cool, the spot where the bluing is faded is where the 2 slides were welded together to make the longslide. Slide to frame fit is excellent, no play.



Lockup is still tight,  bushing still requires a wrench and strong arm. Bore and crown are perfect. I have never seen a Clark this old in this good of condition, which is why I bought it. Most are beat to hell. There are no nasty surprises inside this one, it is beautiful inside and out.

If you want high-res pictures of any specific area, let me know.



If you can/have found one cheaper on gunbroker, please buy it there and good luck with the sale. I have had some great buys and some completely destroyed rattletraps. Hard to tell from pictures.

That's a good-looking gun. Should be able to get it into California, too, as it is more than 50 years old.

It appears you were planning to close bidding on the 3rd but just saw your ad when looking for something else.  I am a buyer at 1550.
