Clark 50th Anniversay 1911

In 2001 Clark Custom celebrated their 50th anniversary in the gun business. Towards that end, they offered a 50 gun limited edition 1911 with a Damascus slide on a Capsian frame. The pistol received the full meltdown treatment, along with a flurry of enhancements. Reportedly, 37 of these pistols, known as the Millenium Meltdown, were built by Jim Clark Sr. before he died on January 7, 2000. This pistol, #21, is one of them.

Features include:
Caspian full size 1911 frame
Clark .45ACP Ramped Match barrel
Caspian Government Length stainless steel Damascus slide
Lo mounted Caspian rear sight
Across dovetail fiber optic front sight
Caspian Damascus hammer
Front and rear slide cocking serrations
20 LPI Machine Checkering
King ambidextrous extended thumb safety
King Palm Swell beavertail grip safety
King Black long lite trigger
Clark's Big Bushing and Reverse plug
S&A Double Diamond Checkered Laminate grips
S&A floral engraved hex head grip screws
Clark's famous Meltdown dehorn job
Accuracy & Trigger job
Lower is hard chromed.

I have been fortunate enough to handle one, and view several of these guns. They are unique.
