Think im gonna pass on that one then, if it was standard 1911 type parts then i would get it. Sounds like it might be a pos.

What its made of doesnt worry me really, im real good at spotting junk... it seems fairly well made. The parts availability is what i was wondering, i dont buy oddball stuff that i cant get parts for.

I wouldn't buy a llama. Of the threee main spanish companies, Star and Astra were better than Llama. I have a star and I'd rather shoot it than my glock. But what I've heard about Llama leaves a lot of doubt.

Llama has a terrible reputation, and I think it's deserved. I've only handled one Llama, a 1911 my cheap-assed brother-in-law bought on some department store clerk's hype. "Junk" is a generous descriptor--ill-fitted parts, loose, and roughly finished. I'm not lookin' for a cosmetic queen at their prices, but as I recall, this one sample wasn't much to be happy about, and his price was $185 back in the day. Today, I wouldn't give ya $200 for the same gun. A real jammomatic, too. Mebbe if my BIL knew how to adjust an extractor, it mighta run better, but he's a know-it-all, and wouldn't lemme suggest it, so I'll never know if jamming was an extractor tuning problem.

The one I had and sold was as reliable as it could be , but it had the worst trigger on a 1911 I ever shot and it wasn't very accurate . I had thought about goin through it w/ new parts like I did w/my RIA until I researched it .

Repaired one for a friend years ago, he used it for a tackle box gun on fishing trips. Had good luck with it, but parts were a PITA to find...you were wise to pass this one.
