Hey all,

I bought this Llama full size pseudo 1911 for $125.00. Had less than 150 rounds through it when I bought it; now has >500 with no discernable wear. Doesn't like 230Gr Hydra Shoks, but eats Gold Dots wwithout missing a beat.
Has been in my Beltster for more than a month. It has worn holes in several undershirts because every edge is like a knife. Dunno if it's because it's an inexpensive pistol or what, but I'm gonna spend the weekend with the Dremmel and some jewlers files and try to transform this into a comfortable carry piece. Figure if I screw it up, I'll only be out the $125.00. Not taking this lightly, but it's less to lose than my Kimber or my Para Warthog.

Some "Before" Pics:







I'll post up pics of my progress if anybody is interested. Lemme know.

Steve

The serrated areas on the slide (front and back), the edges of the hammer, the rear site edges, whole arc of the muzzle end of the slide, and the lower edges of the bottom of the slide just above the dovetail safety.

They munch my clothes like a rasp.

It's a cheap gun, so I'm probably gonna go a little stupid on it with the edge removal. Won't remove any mating surfaces except for the last 2 or 3mm of the rear of the slide. This is more of an experiment to see what I can do with it. Absolutely unfriendly for carry with its' edges as sharp as thay are currently.
Don't really trust it for everyday carry so I carried my Springfield V10 in my PagerPal this last month I carried this in my Beltster.

MIGHT try to polish on the feed ramp to see if I can make it eat the Hydra Shoks, 'cause currently it FTF at least two of every three. Who knows- this may be beyond my abilities. Hate to have this thing blow up in my hand.

Like I said, I'd nevr carry this as my primary, and I'd like to see what I can do with the files and Dremmel, so I'm gonna play. Even the best gunsmiths gotta start somewhere :rolleyes:
