    I have a pretty much NIB Clark Ruger SR1911 with a scope mount on slide installed....that has a 10 shot 2" group target included and all correct paperwork form Clark.

    What is this gun worth if I tried selling it...thanks

    Clark was the only one to shoot it.

    While I respect the late Jim Sr's work, I will say that a friend of mine recently had a complete full house Clark Custom Meltdown built and it was a train wreck. Gun turned out horrible, especially considering the $3000+ and 2 year wait. Had to go back and came back no better. His 10 shot 2" target that was sent, from and shot, by Clark, measures 2 1/2". Which is only the smallest of slaps in the face that that gun has brought to the owner. So, in my book, I'd say a Ruger that's been worked on by them isn't worth anymore than it was before it went. POS company, that puts out POS guns. With POS "customer service". Good luck with yours. And I hope for your sake that it didn't come with any "tuned" magazines. My buddy's came with 5 so called "tuned" magazines, which all looked like they were pulled out of an old range box and none of them even matched , nor would even feed hardball ammo! I was there the day it was taken out of the box and saw this firsthand. Pathetic. Jim Sr. should be rolling in his grave at the BS level his low life son has taken that once great company too. End of rant.

    I'm not sure why somebody would want to do that to a Ruger anyway, but to each there own.

    I know I wouldn't pay any higher than a stock Ruger. That's even if I would want it at all.

    Kind of a small market for those. Would guess it may be worth
    around $1200 to the right buyer.

    The key would certainly be having the right buyer.

    That 10 shot 2" group was shot at:
    21 feet?
    30 feet?
    50 feet?
    30 yards?
    50 yards?
    1 hand?
    2 hand?
    bench rest?
    Ransom Rest?

    I can shoot 10 shot 2" groups all day long:

    At about 3 feet maybe?

    50 yards and I believe they say they use a Ransom Rest

    Just curious, many thanks for the response, and that is very precise shooting, Ransom Rest or not.
