It was fairly common back in the day to put S&W adjustable rear sights on a 1911
True, except nobody put them on this particular gun.

I have owned lots of Clark guns in my life, and all were shooters. Never, ever did a Clark have an issue. In my mid-60's now and having trouble with sight picture or this would be mine. Everything about this shooter is perfect. If you have never tried a Clark tiger tooth front grip, well, too bad for you. You won't lose your grip in rain, snow, sleet, mud or blood. Also, Clark liked keeping the old Colt barrel and accurizing it rather than replacing with a "new" one. He said it would save a little money and shoot just as good when he was done. And it always did.

I have Clark 1911 built in the early 90's that I used for Bullseye shooting that also has the stock Colt barrel. You would send him your stock Colt Series 70 and he would put the barrel in his test fixture and fire it at 50 yards. He said most stock barrels in good shape would shoot as well as the Kart Match barrels. If yours shot fine he would use it for the build and just weld in some material to the lugs so he could fit them. Really the only difference between the after market match barrels and the stock Colt ones were the aftermarket came oversized so they could be fitted. Saved a few dollars using your Colt barrel. I think mine shot just over 2" inches at 50 yards after he was done with it.

Interesting bit of Clark tiger tooth trivia that many folks don't know is that it was done in one direction for right handed shooters and the other for left so when you gripped the gun it would bite into your hand and keep your fingers from slipping. It's one reason it feels so much different than checkering.
