I just picked up my newest acquisition, a blued 1999 LLAMA MAX-I 45 C/F. It is stunning condition. I will have pics up tomorrow.

I found this brief description on Wikipedia: Llama MAX-I C/F: Also called Max-I Compact. Manufactured 1995-????. Self-loading pistol, locked breech, Colt 1911-A1 "clone", in .45 ACP (7-round magazine), has a 4.25-inch barrel and a Commander-type loop hammer.

Here is some interesting info from Ohioans For Concealed Carry Forums:

Here's some info regarding parts interchangeability with the 1911.

Very cool.

I like the Spanish 1911 style pistols, such as the Star Model B and the Llama Max-I and Model IX.

Bac, any ideas about the engraved slide on this LLAMA IX? I cannot find any info on it at all.

It certain looks like it. The did have a .38 Super and a .380 that was made with engravings. The engravings on the .38 Super slide are very similar.
