    I just picked up my newest acquisition, a blued 1999 LLAMA MAX-I 45 C/F. It is stunning condition. I will have pics up tomorrow.

    I found this brief description on Wikipedia: Llama MAX-I C/F: Also called Max-I Compact. Manufactured 1995-????. Self-loading pistol, locked breech, Colt 1911-A1 "clone", in .45 ACP (7-round magazine), has a 4.25-inch barrel and a Commander-type loop hammer.

    Here is some interesting info from Ohioans For Concealed Carry Forums:

    Here's some info regarding parts interchangeability with the 1911.

    COLT 1911 Parts Compatibility List

    The following after-market 1911 parts will work on the Llama Max I 45 L/F and C/F, Llama Max II IX-C and IX-D, MiniMax, MiniMax II and MiniMax Sub-Compact; FireStorm 45 Government, Compact and Mini Compact Models (older style Llama IX-A,B):

    Barrel Bushing
    Guide Rod Assembly
    Springs (Recoil, Hammer and Sear)
    Trigger
    Hammer
    Main Spring Housing
    Barrel Link and Pin
    Bushing Type Compensators
    Hammer Strut
    Sear and Sear Disconnect
    Rear Sight (may require the removal of the firing pin safety - depends on the sight)
    Red Dot Sight and Mount (may require ejector and ejector port modifications)
    Beavertail Grip Safety (not quite interchangeable, but the standard one can be reshaped to allow for a higher grip)
    Magazine (7 and 8 shot Max I C/F,L/F and IX-A,B and FireStorm Gov't/Compact only)

    Very cool.

    I like the Spanish 1911 style pistols, such as the Star Model B and the Llama Max-I and Model IX.

    Bac, any ideas about the engraved slide on this LLAMA IX? I cannot find any info on it at all.

    It certain looks like it. The did have a .38 Super and a .380 that was made with engravings. The engravings on the .38 Super slide are very similar.
