I recently purchased this interesting Spanish steel. I am not very familiar with the history and my research has only uncovered that it was made prior to 1936 due to the slide markings "GABILONDO Y CIA ELOEIBAR (ESPANA) CAL 9M/M. 38 "LlAMA" ". This was from Ned Schwing's 2006 standard catalog of fireams? Pistols after 1936 have Llama before the Gabilondo?. Its serial number is under 35,000. I looked in Spanish Handguns: The history of Spanish Pistols & Revolvers by Gene Gangarosa Jr and found very little about dating this pistol. I would appreciate any more information about the date and value of this pistol?
The other side of the slide has a "Llama" Extra. I can't find any proof codes. The only thing I have found is a half of a star under a grip with lines coming out of the inner circumferences. It also has 63 stamped on the barrel and frame, but I think this is for assembly. I'll take a picture.
