    Llama Firearms

    Does anyone know what happened to Llama firearms. I don't see them on any of the sites. I was trying to replace a clip and was told they were out of business. I have a Llama semi 380 that I had bought around 1975.

    All your answers are right here. Llama had introduced some good double-stacks in the early 90's, but Bill Clinton's AWB pretty much killed them. I believe that almost single-handedly killed the company.

    Llama firearms

    Zero TA, thanks very much for the link on Llama. The history was not only very interesting but as an added bonus it also contained the pistol i own. Thanks again.

    It wasn't Clinton that killed Llama, it was their poor quality. They pretended to be to specifications with standard builders, but were off. Cheap materials too. Several Spanish builders have tried to take their place, but have suffered the same quality issues, and are gone.

    Llama pistol

    Thanks for the reply Michael t, Im looking to buy the CZ97BD for my truck carry pistol. I'll ask them if I can get something for the Llama, and hope I don't get laughed at.

    I bought one online for my .380 but can't remember where. Are you referring to the model IIIA? I have the .380,.32, and .22 versions. Let me know if you want to sell yours.

    Llama

    Sonofsarge, thanks for the reply. I'll be holding onto the Llama 380, once i acquire a firearm, I hold on to them. I use it now and then at the range and haven't had any problems yet. I have heard a lot of negative feedback, but I like the feel. I could do without the grip safety, not a fan of that.

    Personally, I htink that the IIIA is about the best gun they ever made. Had a 1964 IIIA .380 for my first off duty gun when I became a cop in the '70s, never had a problem with it. Just got a 1996, the quality is definitely down, but on non-functional stuff, and it still feeds and shoots well. If you buy a LLama, it's best to try for 1975 or earlier. And after about 1985, it's really iffy - you might get a piece of junk, or a good gun. It's a gamble.

    I just got a couple IIIA mags from someone on gunbroker.com. Just do a search for Llama, and go through the listings that come up, you'll find them. Triple K also makes some Llama mags, that's where I got some for my Model XIB 9mm. You can also find various caliber Llama mags at most gun shows, and .45, 9mm, and .380 Colt mags will work in some Llamas, mainly the earlier models that look just like a 1911. I don't know if they work in any of the Omni or Max models at all. About the only caliber Llama mag I've been unable to ever find is a 9mm Largo, but I've heard that the .38 Super and 9mm Largo mags are interchangeable, and I have found some .38 Super mags at gun shows.
