The Llama is back.

Resurrecting the Spanish brand, Filipino company Metro Arms is now making handguns under the classic name. One of the new-old pistols is the Micromax.

A shrunken 1911 pistol, the Micromax is chambered in .380 ACP. It has the typical controls and stylings of a 1911-style handgun. The single action pistol has a manual thumb safety that is ambidextrous. Both the slide and frame are made of 4140 steel and have a matte blue finish. The grip panels are wood.

The sights are dovetailed so they can be replaced if you wish. The barrel is 3.75″ long, and unloaded, the gun weighs just under 23 ounces.

Eagle Imports is handling sales in the US.
