    Llama .38 special revolver

    The Llama revolvers are pretty much a copy of the older smith police models, nothing fancy, but still of half decent quality.

    Finding background info on the Llama revolvers is specious at best, there's not much out there to look for.

    We'll see how it shoots in the next couple of days, but I think the crown on the muzzle needs a bit of spruceing up. Maybe squeak a little more accuracy out of it.

    It's hard to tell if its a comanche II or a martial because the pics I've seen so far both show the same versions with slight differences.

    I believe its from the 70's, but right now that's a guess. They stopped making them in the late 70's that I know because Llama went strictly pistol after that.

    Looking for a good source on serial numbers if anyone has any insight into that, but so far what I've found is not very useful.

    When 1Shot sees this, he will probably be able to really help you out.

    Bet it hits something every time you shoot it!

    I'll bet it hits exactly where the shooter places the shot, wadda think?

    Wanted to take care of the crown today and never got around to it. Maybe tommorow.

    some llamas were good some were junk depends when they were made. most wheel guns were ok but some of the semis were just plain scrap.
    dont think there is a real serial number list out there.

    My experience was with the semi auto's..1911 truest copy..as I happened to get a very goof one..
    course, I also lucked into one of the last parts supply left...and rebuilt every part brand new except
    the frame...etc..


    dvmcmr..OK...your serial...don't show it all...but the format...is at consecutive like xxxxxx
    or broken like xxx--xx--xx etc..?

    And..what are "last" two digits or characters...?


    i can't tell you with 100% cerainty as to a revolver...but all semi auto were dated by last two
    digits of number or characters/numbers....and I think revolvers were also...

    Thanks 1shot. I've seen the page you've posted, unfortunately it applies only to pistols, not revolvers.

    I think it's a 1978, but not sure on that. I'll look at the number when I get back.

    Had the Llama out today, it shoots better than I ever expected. It shot so well I am now going to recrown that muzzle, make some new grips for it, and clean up the trigger.

    After the initial cylinder full to tweak the sights, the next 12 rounds all sat within a 2 1/2" group at 37 feet, freehand.
    Cheap 158 GR lead ammo. Temperature around 30 degrees.
    The group opened up to about 4" at 25 yards, with cold hands.

    I now have a little project for the winter.

    Good for you. I'll bet 30* feels great! Maybe when spring gets here.

    30 did feel great. About 20 years ago. LOL!
