This week I bought a 2002 llama max 1 L/F (1911 clone),45 acp, high gloss blued steel with mirror silver stainless steel in the grip and thumb safeties, slide release lever and some other small parts. It's a beautiful pistol and Have read in some Internet posts that post-mid-90's llamas were pretty well made. There's a YouTube video of a guy shooting the heck out of a totally identical llama with zero failures and with Wolf ammo, no less. (read that Wolf is a no-no for various reasons) 'd love to take this beauty to the range but am paranoid that it won't function. Any advice?
Also I'm still 1 or 2 steps below novice. Had to do Internet research to make sure I wouldn' accidentally ask the Academy dealer for some wrong version of 45 ammo. Is the gun limited to "45acp" or will "45 automatic" ammo worktoo? What about "45 GAP", "45 long colt" and an oddball I saw called "454".
Even within factory ammo marked 45 acp are some brands "to hot" with enough gun powder to make the blow up? If so what do you look for in markings on the box.
