Information about Gabilondo y Cia, manufacturer of the Llama brand of pistols is found here: http://www.carbinesforcollectors.com/llamapage.html

Parts and accessories are located here: http://www.gunpartscorp.com/Manufacturers/Llama- 33364.htm

An Operators manual is available for download from here: http://stevespages.com/pdf/llama_9mm_parabellum.pdf.

Llama pistols were moderately priced, decent quality handguns based primarily on the Colt Model 1911. You have what appears to be a Model XI-B pistol which was introduced in 1954 and produced through the Mid 1980's or later.

The markings on the trigger housing are Spanish proof marks and the date code for year of manufacture. I cannot read the letter in the code from the picture but the 2 indicates that it was manufactured after 1980. The code is interpreted by the letter which is the year, i.e. A2=1981, B2=1982, etc.

The wooden grips on your pistol appear to be non-factory replacements.

Mad Dog: "F2" is the date code for 1986.

I have no information on Llama serial numbers.
