      Looking for Llama .380 information

      My wife has a Llama .380 she inherited from her step-father. I'm trying to identify it. I know the basic history of Llama but I'm not sure exactly what model we have. The serial number is 563842 which I *think* puts production somewhere around 1970-ish. Also, based on the fact there are no vents in the rib, I believe it's a IIIA, series 2, variation 3. This is all based on my research online but I'm certainly not 100%. I'll take and post photos if that will help.

      It's not a bad shooting little gun. Much more accurate than I expected.

      My last question: any idea on value? My wife has no sentimental attachment to it so we'd like to possibly sell or trade.

      Not complaining but I'm curious why this got moved since the my Llama is a 1911 design. It seemed like the correct forum for the post as there were other posts related to the weapon already present there.

      It's not a 1911.


      Looks like I have some house cleaning to do...

      As a used gun, maybe $150-$250.

      Nope, sorry.

      You might try contacting Eagle Imports as they handled some Llama warranty work if I recall, they may be able t help you out.

      Also check out Gunbroker and GunsAmerica to look at models & pricing etc.

      Does your Llama have a grip safety?

      If you try to sell it to a gun shop, you can basically expect jack squat.

      They'll give you about one half or less, of what a private sale would bring.

      I had a guy offer me a llama 380 with three mags for $200. I have read that they are not the most reliable guns but I believe I may buy this one. Any ideas?

      Oh, yes you can...if one of your guns is unreliable.
      Llama's guns, like Star's and those of the other Spanish brands, will usually be of somewhat inferior quality. There is frequently a heat-treatment issue. Sometimes the steel is too soft for, or otherwise unsuited to, gun-making.

      Full Disclosure: I own a Star PD. It hasn't failed yet. But now that I have better pistols, I am no longer willing to trust it with my life.
