I just acquired this from a fellow GTer. It is in fantastic condition. It has also had a few upgrades like a Wilson trigger and internals, Ed Brown grip safety, extended slide release, and night sights. It even came with a Wilson 7-round ETM magazine. It has also been refinished in matte black and gray.

It now joins my other two Llamas.

Good luck with that Llama.......I had a Minimax .45 I bought new a couple years ago for $180.00, that was a real POS! Couldn't get that thing to feed anything without jamming and stove piping. Replaced the recoil spring, polished the feed ramp, even tried Colt Officer mags. The damn thing still wouldn't feed any type of ammo I tried. It was the worst semi-auto I ever owned.

Ended up giving it away.......:faint:

I took one off of a guy after a foot pursuit one time. I'm pretty sure it was a big enough POS that he couldn't have shot me if he'd wanted to.
:rofl: A friend of mine has a 9mm Llama that shots about a foot low at 10 yards...


jrs93accord, hopefully you got a good one! :wavey:

This is my fourth Llama. My very first one was in 1987. I probably put close to 2000 rounds of lead ball reloads through it. The only problem I had was a few FTF because of the reloads. I had to sell the Llama because I needed the money at the time. I regret having to sell it. My other two that I have now have been trouble free so far. I can say that I have yet to own a poor performing Llama.

Consider yourself lucky! I do seem to have bad luck with guns though. Of the last 6 handguns I've bought only 2 have been 100% out of the box. (a G19 and S&W 442) :upeyes:
