    Just put a few hundred rounds through my new Llama Max-I. It is one of the cheapest 1911s on the market, but I must say I was pleasantly surprised. It had all of the accuracy that a 1911 should. No jams. I know that 200 rounds is not a great indicator, but 200 rounds is 200 rounds. The only thing that gun is missing (for my preference) is an extended slide release. Other than that, it seems to be a great gun for the money. Anyway...just thought I'd share.
  2. Llama has come a long way from the early seventies.

    Has anyone everr shot a Llama "Omni" pistol? They came out about 15 years ago. I remember reading about them, and was considering getting one. They were a 1911 type pistol. They special feature was that most of the moving parts had ballbearings. I have never seen one in real life; they seem to be scarce.

    Weird, never heard of it, would like to see one, I like unusual firearms. My guess would be that the ball bearings didn't hold up or people just thought it was too strange.

    One addition

    The Llama came with the worst magazine I have ever seen/used. I literally took it outside and smashed it with a hammer (a few too many times...hope nobody saw...). I put in Chip McCormick in its place.

    I want to order one of the MAX-I Llamas. I used to see them in every issue of Shotgun News for around $239. I haven't seen them lately, probably because I'm looking for one. Anybody know who is selling them now? TIA.
