    I like how the mag release hole is countersunk.

    Yeah, he basically started the Performance Center. I'm not sure if S&W tried to keep him or not. Paul may have just wanted to go his own way.

    You're right, Jeff. Paul has very few equals in the 1911 industry.

    I think its almost apples and oranges, Joe. They're both great in different ways.

    Yeah, Paul puts unbelievable attention to detail into his builds. Mine is not countersunk, but he angled the buttom for ease of operation.

    Here is a lousy pic, but you see what I mean.

    Liebenberg uses a signature forged beavertail that doesn't look like any other. His 1911s really stand out.

    Thanks Joe

    I could take it or leave it, actually. I think yours looks cleaner without the magwell.

    Joe, I found this real short YT video with Paul doing some gunsmithing.

    Like I said, its real short, but very cool nonetheless. :cool:

    Paul is a great guy and builds an awesome gun. I am fortunate that his shop is a mere 10 miles from my house. I stop to chat with him often and he has done some some work for me. I plan to eventually have him build me a full house custom.
