Before I could embark on this Quixote-like journey, I had the good fortune to discuss it at length with Jim Clark Jr., President of Clark Custom Guns, at the 1999 Steel Safari match. Jim is one of the best 3-gun and tactical shooters around, and is widely known for his superlative .45 work, as well as his match-grade 10/22's. He has also done considerable accurizing work on the Mini-14, concentrating initially on precisely the type of re-engineering job I had in mind.

Would Jim be interested in evaluating one, and maybe making an offer?
What followed was a period of R & D on the original all-steel unit, which saw the weight pared down to a more manageable 20 ounces total, and the addition of a wrapped carbon fiber section at the unit's forward end, surrounding an aluminum bushing which is closely fitted to the mounting sleeve. The eventual product seemed both effective and practical, so a deal was struck and Clark's entered into production.

My next visit with Jim came at the 2000 SHOT Show, and I asked him to stick one of these in the mail when he had the chance.

Long before Bill Wilson ever checkered a front strap, James E. Clark had found a way to glue a pistol into a competitor's sweaty hand.

Jim Clark had been customizing pistols for eighteen years when Ed Brown decided to become a part time gunsmith.

Jim Clark was a founding member and the first President of the American Pistolsmiths Guild. As a competitor, perhaps he was proudest of being the only civilian trained national bullseye champion. In 1950, Jim Clark founded Clark Custom, and began a career of producing no bullshit innovative and competitive pistols based on the 1911. One must remember that surplus GI pistols were the raw materials of building a race gun then. There were few parts on the market to augment a gunsmith's ability. If a man could not weld, fabricate and create, he could forget being a gunsmith. In this environment, Jim Clark flourished, laying the groundwork and ideas for the many permutations of the 1911 pistol that were to follow. His son, Jim Clark Jr. continues his father's legacy at Clark Custom, but as a North Louisiana resident, I always hoped to find a gun made by Jim Clark the Elder. Even in the piney woods of North Louisiana they are precious heirlooms, as rare as turtle teeth, or priced like golden boudin when they appear.
Finally, after years of perseverance, fortune would shine on me, and I found a Jim Clark the Elder gun that I could afford.
This pistol was ordered from Jim Clark by an anesthesiologist in 1981. It is built on a Colt Mark IV Series 70 base gun. He shot a "box or two" of ammunition through it and put it away. Even though this pistol does have a Safari Arms extended safety and slide stop, they were impeccably fitted by the old man himself. The lockwork on this pistol snicks back and forth with a precision and an ease that belies it's close tolerances.
In this gun Jim Clark was not attempting to build a beautiful gun. It is almost ironic that he inadvertently did.
