Here are some photos of the Jim Clark, Shreveport, LA Longslide .38 Marked 1911 that I just picked up from my local gun shop. The Colt frame serial number dates to 1962/.38 Super 1911...

Those are Colt factory .38 Special Magazines....they fall into the almost unobtanium category!

Outstanding pick up ! What a great score. Top of the line wadcutter Colt used for Bullseye shooting back in the heyday of that sport. Plus it is built by one the best Smiths of day.

I'd bet that it would give any Smith and Wesson Model 52 a run for the money.
How many rounds do the Colt mags hold? My Model 52 only holds 5.

Douglas the Colt holds 5, my 52-1 holds 5 (you knew that), and I can fit 7 in the converted .38 Super magazine that came with the Alton Dinan built .38 Special wadcutter that I bought last week. It was advertised as a .38 Super gun with a full BoMar rib...
