A relative of mine has an opportunity to purchase these firearms and BE equipment from an ex. He sent me these pictures and more of the available firearms. These are only being sold within the family for my nephew to have some day. 

But there is a lot of interesting history here. I may drive down to get my hands on these just to see if I can identify who may have performed the work on them James Clark Sr? Take a look at the sight adjustment card on box lid! Anyone know who else may have done stippling like this back in the day? 

Just last week I thought someone was asking about these timers? 

Enjoy!

1911 - 1 38 super

High Standard Supermatic Citation

Cannot confirm the two revolvers at this time

That stippling looks Giles's work to me!

The 38 super may not actually be a super, it could be a 38 special.

Clark does/ did "tiger tooth" stippling. A lot of bullseye pistolsmiths did the kind that appears in the photo, including Giles, Jackie Best, etc. I think the military armorers also applied that type.
