advice needed Llama IXA .45 (1911 Knock off) - Extractor spring

Recommended Posts

 

This may be a longshot.  I picked up an old Llama IXA for $150, and figured it would be a fun little resto project that wouldn't break the bank.  The last piece I'm missing is the extractor spring.  This is part #10 shown in the attached schematic.  I'm having a hell of a time finding this little sumbitch.  Anyone out there what size/ load this spring is supposed to be, or if it is interchangeable with any other firearms?  

 

If someone had one laying around, that would be even better.

 

TIA.

I'd try Numrich, I had success with my M1 carbines...

I think he did.  That's Numrich's schematic.   ;)

Iwonder if that spring is much different from any other external extractor 1911-type guns.

If you have a local gunsmith they should have an assortment of coil spring stock. It wouldn't be hard to make a spring that would fit. These are usually fairly stiff springs. I used to make them often enough that I had a feel for how "springy" the extractor needed to be...

The idea that the Llama is the progenitor of the Kimber is hilariously fitting.

      Trying to decide which one. I have done quite a bit of "research" and found a lot of contradictory information and opinions. Any of you have any first hand experience/input? The Canik is $120 less.

      Good morning guys. Got another email this morning from Lone Wolf Survivalist. I have a question for you about this product.
      The G96 Synthetic CLP. Lots of claims on it, both written and verbal from the site. Sounds like the latest wonder product. And yes I'm curious about it.
      Anyone ever use it? I have CLP, but if I'm reading this correctly, this product is not from the producers of CLP, just a copy, synthetic version.
      Any comments on this? Thanks for looking.

      My wife has a Glock 19 that she occasionally shoots.  Her only issue is the grip is a little too wide for how small her hands are.  Yesterday I let her hold and fire my Glock 43.  While she loved the narrower grip of the single stack vs double stack 9mm, the short barrel and lighter slide creates a snappier kick.  (which she did not like)  Not to mention if she ever needed to use it in a self defense situation, the shorter sight radius and 6-round magazine could be a disadvantage.
      I think the new G48 might be the best of both worlds for her - longer sight radius and barrel, heavier slide, and a 10 round magazine.  It just might be the perfect combination of the G19 and G43.  However, she doesn't want me buying one for her until she can shoot a few rounds through it along side her G19 to make sure it is exactly what she wants.
      Does anyone around the Crossville area have a G48 that she test fire?  We do go to Nashville and/or Knoxville every now and then too, so that could be a possibility.
