Although mine has a date code of V (1951), it has a grip safety.
It has a lanyard ring, arched mainspring housing and checkered wood grips with no Llama medallion.
The serial number is 1471xx which would put it around 2000 after yours. It did not come with a box so I have no idea how it was classified when it originally sold.
Not much is known about the Llama serial number sequencing, so we are attempting to do a database spreadsheet.
For all practical purposes, we are looking at the handguns produced under the "Llama" name, and not the earlier Gabilondo y Cia products. Please list model name/number, caliber, year code (if available) and serial number.
Hi-Points have remained for years among the most common guns confiscated by Cleveland police and also comprised the majority of illegally purchased guns in cases federally prosecuted in Northern Ohio. Buffalo teen Daniel Williams and his family with the help of the Washington, D. Williams, a high school basketball standout, was mistaken for a gang rival in 2003 and shot while playing basketball in front of a neighbor's house.
Many semi-automatic pistols can be field stripped without the use of any tools.

Bottom line is that as a result the cartridge will headspace on the mouth of the cartridge as well as the rim. I am away from the Llama right now but will fully answer you when I get it and examine it again. I have been having the devil's own time finding much literature on the Llama. I have come to the conclusion that my pistol is a X-A and not a X.
This gun is not in the same class as a Glock or Smith but it's not made to be.
it's an affordable, entry class gun for those of us who need a good dependable weapon but can't afford that Glock or Smith. I call them my Klingon guns for their rugged good looks.
