Llama Super Comanche

Anyone have experience with the Llama Super Comanche in .44 mag? A friend has one he's wanting to sell for $200. Its in excellent shape and i think its definetely worth that. Accuracy? Reliability?

Thanks

These revolvers do not have a stellar reputation for quality. :barf:

It's up to you, he being your friend and all, but if it were up to me, I'd take my $200 and invest it in something more desirable!!

If this is a Llama Super Commanche in 44 Magnum, it is underpriced. I believe them to be better built than most current 44 Magnums. For $200.00, you would be well off to purchase it. They are sleepers. Excellent accuracy and durability. I suggest 44 Special Winchester Silvertips for personal defense/hunting.

I have Astras, Stars and Llamas. They all shoot, they function as designed and some are over 40 years old with no problems. A couple are over 62 and not collecting dust or social security. If it is Spanish, it is NOT automatically a POJ.

I agree with Sir William, I've got 2 Llama's now (.45 and .380)
had a micro-max but sold it for alot more than I paid for it! (wish I still had it)

Some Llama's had a problem NOT ALL!!


For $200.00, if you don't buy it will you let me know how to purchase it?????

My first 44 mag was a Super Commanche. I sold it to buy a SRH. Ironically the first range session with the Ruger and it had to go back for repair. I put about 2k full on 44's though the Llama. I got rid of it because I discovered a void that started to open up on the frame near the rear sight. It kind of scared me about the long term durablity of something like that being fired near my face. The thing I really liked was the chrome hammer and trigger. Would I spend 200 on one? probably. But I would look around and try to find a Dan Wesson for 300 first. Although if someone waived one in front of me for 175 I would probably have to get my wallet out.

Also, the current Commanche revlovers are not even close to the quality of the older blue Llamas I would not give you 50 bucks for one of the new SS 357's.
