Phenomenal, full sized, factory engraved Llama Gabilondo y Cia pistol with matching box.
The pistol retains 99++% of its bright blue original finish, just a few small dings under the forward frame and a hairline scratch reflecting improper re-insertion of the slide stop. Grip straps, grips, and magazine are in the same impeccable condition. Mirror bore. Perfect manual mechanics. Tattered box with taped repairs. One of the most impressively engraved Llama pistols, this one nearly new in original box, being sold for 1/20th the cost of a comparable pre-war Colt.
