Clark Long Heavy Slide 1911sIn the operation of my Dad's ucmufaatnring business he had occasion to have a few dozen parts machined from time to time by a contractor. At about age 15 I would go with him to pick up the parts at a small shop next to the Jersey Gold milk factory in Shreveport. I was fascinated by the other work being done in the shop. The machinist was working on guns, 1911-A1 pistols.The year was around 1956. The machinist was James E. Clark. Jim Clark became my mentor for pistols, shooting, reloading and, unknown to most in the shooting industry, flying. He was like a father to me. I spent many, many hours with him learning all I could about pistols, revolvers and reloading. I used to watch him prepare, fixture, preheat and weld the end cut from a military slide to a Colt 38 Super slide as the beginning of the long heavy slide .38 midrange bullseye guns. He made barrels by drilling and reaming the cut off rear end of military barrels to accept six inch barrels machined from premium Douglas barrel blanks. He used an induction heater to silver solder the Douglas barrel into the prepared lock up stub. He had great success in providing winning guns to bullseye shooters with his five and six inch .38 Spl. wadcutter guns converted from .38 Super Colt 1911 guns. This success prompted the pistol industry manufacturers to bring out .38 Spl wadcutter bullseye guns. Clark Custom is now in Princeton, LA. Previously Clark was in Keithville, LA. My years of learning from Jim were previous to his Keithville operation. His shop was behind his home in far West Shreveport. I used to help him setup to perform his 10 shot 50 yard print test of these fine bullseye guns. On occasion we would print 10 shots to a 1 1/2" group at 50 yards from the Ransom rest. This was before he started using the Giles slide guide which helps machine rest printing. Jim Clark regularly urged me to consider taking up flying and I did. In 1975, with fresh commercial pilot license, I moved to Houston to fly for an industrial distributor. The last gun he made for me was a Colt 70 Series Commander compensated pin gun that is still in my sizable collection of 1911 guns. It's been lost, but I had the test target for years with the 10 shot 1 1/2" group from the 4 1/4" Commander.Bob HutchinsonWireless Industry AssociationPresident and Founder -firstname.lastname@example.org
