    Llamas are fun to shoot but are usually problematic.If you want to switch parts they are not totally compatible with regular 1911s and they are out of production so parts are sometimes hard to find.What kind of SW .40?

    Dallas Texas or so
    If your friend wants to trade you a LLama, you need new friends. They look like a 1911 but that is about it. They have been notorious for problems and quality issues. That said, they are fun to shoot. You can buy a LLama at gun shows for under 3 bills and closer to 2.25.

    thanks, that is what i figured on the llamas, never heard of them so i wanted some advice, i was worried about parts and interchage ability too

    not sure what model, i have heard sigmas have problems, but i thought as long as you take care of things, they are usually ok, the internet buzz is always exagerated, but who knows

    Llama would be my absolute bottom of the barrel last choice in a 1911-style pistol, but YMMV.

    I'd rather have a box cutter than a llama.

    Llama = P.O.S. From a friend's personal experience.
