Eagle Imports recently announced the company was now shipping the Llama Micro Max pistol. This pistol was first shown in the United States two years ago at the 2015 National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers Expo and Annual Meeting.
According to the company, this pistol is a reduced size 1911 style pistol that is chambered for the .380 ACP pistol. In this way, the Micro Max is similar to the Browning 1911-380 pistols.
The Micro Max is a single action pistol with a single stack magazine. Each magazine holds seven .380 ACP cartridges, giving the shooter a total of eight rounds on tap before a reload is needed.
In this scaled down gun, the barrel length is 3.75″. Overall, the gun is about 6.3″ in length and weighs just under 23 ounces unloaded. The slide and frame are both made of forged 4140 steel.
The gun is about 1.2″ wide, which is a bit thicker than many .380 ACP pistols aimed at concealed carry. However, the benefit is that it will better fill the hand of many shooters. Llama elected to use polymer grip panels with contouring that is supposed to improve comfort while shooting.
These guns have a matte blue finish, Novak style sights and an ambidextrous thumb safety. The suggested retail price of the Micro Max is $468.
