Gonna start a project CC pistol

1267 12
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.

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.
Yeah, it may be a cheap gun, but as you said it works without a problem. I would suggest having it professionally dehorned by a smith and anything else done you feel you need. This may run you 300.00 for dehorning, having the ramp polished and anything else. I will set a limit at 300.00. Why set out to damage a good pistol. :cool:
