We are filled with no small degree of nostalgic bliss to have another specimen of the poorest quality firearm ever made in the United States, an early variant of the notorious Clerke First. Our proprietor remembers firing one of the Clerke .32s around 1970, feeling something hitting his foot every shot, and finding substantial sized lead shavings on the floor in our establishment. He has personally sold these new for $15 - $18 apiece. The people who bought them, of course, knew nothing about firearm quality, and we dread the explanations this one will necessitate simply from putting it in our showcase. Nevertheless, we made the decision to buy it from one of our Mississippi Dealer Friends, purely for nostalgic purposes. This one’s serial number is 064xx, and it was made in the early days of Clerke Technicorp’s existence in Santa Monica, California, before the company relocated to Florida in the waning days of the Nixon Administration. Ironically, we cannot ship it back to California; and if we ship it anywhere, it will not come back, because we will not accept a return. The occasion for Clerke Technicorp’s existence was, of course, the 1968 Gun Control Act that temporarily threw a wrench in the gears of cheap German and Italian revolver production until the hardy folk at Eig Cutlery geared up for their own frame production stateside with German and Italian parts. Vastly inferior to its FIE and RG counterparts, this Clerke is operable in a roulette fashion; when a person pulls it double action, the cylinder will spin two or three times in the process, and the hammer’s nose, or firing pin, stands a 10 percent chance, by our estimation, of igniting a cartridge primer on any given effort. In another few years, this revolver will be C&R eligible, but it is not now. This listing is the most extreme example we can think of where our offering costs more for labor than for material. We’re offering it, with good humor, for only $ 79.95 NOT FOR SALE TO CALIFORNIA or SOUTH CAROLINA DESTINATIONS

We consider trade offers. Blue & Walnut Good, Black Plastic bad. No like plastic guns except SP-1s. S&W, Colt Stainless Very Good. We even like RG, H&R, Taurus, Rossi Revolvers. Gold, Silver good, esp. Morgan Dollars and Walking Liberty Half Dollars. We like .243 and .30-30 very much. Remember, these listings cost time and money, and NOBODY keeps their guns clean

Don't let your buddies use your account. Registered user must be the buyer, with his or her own money. Buying firearms and related items for other people can result in felony charges. Don't try, either, to circumvent any law; for example, a California civilian may not buy a high capacity magazine and have it shipped to his brother-in-law in Nevada. That is a felony.
GA Pay buyers are NOT charged until we confirm we have the item and are ready to ship it. The same thing is true for phone-in, fax-in, and mail-in payments. In this respect, and in several others, Guns America outshines all its competitors. This is the best firearms website there is, hands down.
