    Here are a few modern pistols that are kinda cool because of from whom they were purchased. The first is a bright nickel Government Model from 1976.

    I love that extended sight radius. Talk about function before form. Excellent. I bet that thing could tell a few tales.

    I just knew that a 1911 had to be Darth Vader's pistol of choice.

    Very neat stuff.....thanks for sharing those pics!

    The Jim Clark guns are among the most accurate 1911 style pistols ever produced. Clark, himself, was quite an authority on marksmanship and custom gunsmithing. https://clarkcustomguns.com/about/

    Here are a couple more Clarks I have. The first is a 1958 Super .38. This pistol was one of 20 Clark received from Colt and converted over to shoot .38 midrange. 1958 is also the year he won the Camp Perry national pistol championship. Later, the pistol was converted back to fire .38 Super.

    The next is a 1967 Clark Long Heavy Slide .45acp. These pictures are old, and I should have used a different background. But...you can see what it is, anyway.

    These photos show the front and back grip strap preparation normally seen on Clark pistols from this era.

    In the right hands, the Clark pistols will outperform many, if not most, of the high-priced "target" pistols produced today. Jim Clark was a true master and knew what it took to be a champion shooter.

    Mr. Jones has been a gun enthusiast for a number of years. When he made a decision to sell some, 1290 pieces were offered at once.
