I have a nice adjustable PAL. For some reason the first couple of shaves feel a bit more harsh than in Schicks, but it sure is fun to play with the little adjustor dial and see the safety bar move in and out.

Rocketman's post about the timeline of the PAL razors got me interested in digging mine out and using them a little more often. Here's a few shots of my meager PAL collection.
The Injecto-matic with the dark handle was made in Great Britain, and has a few notable differences between the other one that was made in the U.S. of A.
The angle of the British one's frame is more severe than the American version. It wouldn't stand on it's side without a little help from the adjustable. And the plastic part of the handle extends a lot further up the neck. The handle is also thinner and tapered differently at the bottom. I don't know if the differences are due to being made in different countries, or if it's due to being made in different years.
The guard bars are also different. The British one has parallel grooves similar to the Schicks, while the American one has vertical grooves.
I like the British one a little better, I can't really say that it shaves better, I just prefer it for some reason.
