    It looks similar to my build, actually, with a couple less features. There's been two bids already, but if the price stays in the $3500 range, its a nice deal for someone. These guns are incredible and the wait for a new one is currently two years and cost a lot more than $3500. You never see these for sale.

    Of course, the buyer will need to live with that serial number. :sad:

    Here's mine for comparison. Mine has the new smaller rollmarking and built on the in house frame. The one on GB was built on a Caspian frame, before Paul had his own.

    As much as I try, I just cannot warm up to the external extractor. I guess if I was going to buy another external extractor 1911, a Liebenberg would be the one, though.

    I prefer internal, but don't mind the EE. I've got plenty of 1911s with them. :)

    If the original owner was Barry Gibb, then that would be pretty cool.

    That would be the cool equivalent of owning Jon Voigt's car...and pencil.

    The description says, "This Pistol Dynamics custom 1911 was built by Paul Liebenberg and was commissioned by music legend Barry Gibb of the Bee Gee’s."
