    Its a cool video, Don.

    I actually posted that on here when Joe bought his PD gun on Gunbroker.

    Wow, he was using a dremel like it was nothing:bowdown:. My butt hole quivers every time I use mine for some very minor grinding on a project gun:nailbiting:.

    He's a fascinating man to converse with. I've never spoken with anyone more well versed & knowledgeable about semi-auto handguns. It's like talking to Einstein about physics. :cool:

    I ordered it, so i'll report back later. I have the Wilson and AGI 1911 gunsmithing videos as well, so thought i'd see what this one is like. The other's have good info in them, but they are dated (they were on VHS)

    I think I'll order today as it will be a good primer for the 1911 pistol smithing course I'm taking in Feb.

    I preordered about an hour ago. I hope the lighting is good and close up shots of what he's doing was used. I have another 1911 build video where you can't really see anything.

    Now THAT"S what a PD should look like. Mine is nice, and shoots like a laser, but I REALLY wish it had those slide cuts and magwell. :cool:

    Joe, you ought to send it down to Florida and have Paul fix it the way you want it. Call him and see what he will charge. You said you wanted to do work on it anyway.

    Why not see if Paul can do it?

    I just realized I lied in that post and just fixed it.

    I got my PD at the end of 2009, so I've only had it 3 years. It was a 2 year wait time though. I ordered it at the end of 2007.
