For sale is 'the' original 1911 Long-Slide. The slide is 5 and 3/8, requiring a 5.5'' barrel (which is supposed to lead by 1/8th inch). This is the Llama -
Extra. From my research on this pistol, it is the original long slide. The lagging Spanish gun market used this particular llama to try and revitalize with
a quality production.
I rescued this gun from a pawn shop. Some one stuck a .38 super barrel in it and was having feeding problems (a 5'' barrel, so it was only retained by the
end of the bushing!). I stripped off the blue, cleaned the few pit spots under the grips, and took everything out of it. I have all of the original parts,
but I put $275 in new parts in it. After fitting just about everything, I am no longer interested in this project. My loss is your gain.
Things of note. This 1911 is completely 100% compatible, except the grip screws are in different spots! I fit a pair of Hogue wrap arounds, but it took some
effort. The wilson combat screws are threaded for bushings, which this did/does not have installed. Also, I test fired it, and things worked fine, except
the extractor tension is too loose, resulting in erratic (and I bet unreliable, only fired a few proofing rounds) ejection. The parts are all in great
condition. The grip safety needs additional fitting, and the mainspring housing needs to be filed some more (it is too tight to the grip safety, resulting
in the thumb safety being gritty and grip safety clicky).
This is a tinkerer and higher project.

~$250 in parts + Good slide and Frame.
Will let the whole thing go (Original parts too if you want them)
for **Scroll Down $475 shipped. Remember, you are getting a frame too in there, slide to frame engagement is tight and I do not see the rails looking peened/tightened.
Trigger fit is good too. I used Birchwood Casey Blue & Rust remover with 320grit sandpaper and Flitz metal polish. Feels smooth. EGW is very tight, need
bushing wrench, good fit. =) Will have original wood grips and correctly threaded screws
Please excuse the poor quality pics, the gun looks 100x better than these pics. I can take more if I need to prove it to make a sale.
Also, this gun is 1930s/40s vintage, but still a good arm. I have 5 or 6 original mags to go with it, ranging in finish, but springs are all good on them. They are however chambered in 9mm largo, like the gun was supposed to be originally, so a spacer for 9mm is best, or getting new 9mm mags.
Questions and Inquiries welcome. Trades or partial trades welcome.
Forgot to add, some parts like the Wilson Combat trigger, Wilson combat bullet proof sear spring, Colt dull SS slide stop, were NOT included in the list above as I already had them! More value for you! List is below, project was named Firefly.
