    I have a Llama 1911 in .45acp that I purchased from a friend in the 70s. I have never had a problem with it. The only time it failed to cycle a new round, was one time when I limp-wristed it I read a lot that Llama is considered a jumk gun. Is this true?

    Let me welcome you to the forum and say that amongst 1911's,a lot of people look down at Llama 1911's as not being a "true" 1911 because of some differences in design.

    Having said that,from working at a gun shop for a number of years as well as having a FFL back in the late '70's and early '80's I will say that they either run like the proverbial scalded dog or choke like the Cincinnati Bengals ! :grin:

    If it runs for you, it's good for you! :thumb:

    Thanks, DAT85.
    Like I said, I bought it from a friend in the 70s and don't think I paid $100 for it. I've never done anything to it other than clean and oil after shooting. With all the new 1911s out there these days, I've been thinking about upgrading. Maybe I will after the 100 year anniversary excitement dies down and hopefully with it, the prices. Thanks again for your help.

    My very first handgun I ever bought for myself was a Llama. It would eat 230g ball all day long, but wouldn't feed anything else. I mean NOTHING else. So I sold it.

    Glad you got a good one.
