Today I bought a Llama from board member SICARIO, He described it as having no grip safety, which I didn't know existed. I've been looking for a Llama .380 without the common raised rib on the slide, and was surprised to find that this is indeed a round topped .380. The differences between this 1943 Llama and later ones is extensive. The later locked breech Llama's are in most ways small 1911's, with the exception of the external extractor. The hammer,sear disconnector etc. are miniature 1911 parts. But in this gun the internal design is similar to Star pistol internals. I suspect that the safety simply blocks the sear though, whereas in the Star it also lifts the hammer off the sear. The most interesting feature is the detent spring, which looks like a W, the outer ends of the W touch the slide stop on one end and the safety on the other. It functions perfectly and will be a prized part of my collection as long as I live, thanks SICARIO!
