Engraved Llama XV .22 (Stoeger)



Log in to see fewer ads
I stumbled across this Llama XV .22lr sold through Stoeger.
It is the engraved blued option, which I had never seen or known about until I bought this gun.
I believe the date code/letter is Q which should make it a 1972 production.
Its fun and smooth to shoot, its surprisingly accurate, and hasnít had a jam yet with 2 types of ammo and about 350 rounds.
I canít find much information on these engraved guns (how many years the engraving was offered, how many were produced, etc.).
I bought it up with some other guns and figured Iíd flip it, but itís steadily growing on me!
Anyone out there have one of these and/or know more info on them?

Sweet!
Cant give you any info, but Ive been attracted since seeing it, iirc, in the old Gun Digest. There probably arent very many out there, cant say Ive ever seen a live one.
Id keep it for a bit, something like that should always sell and the window of opportunity should be wide.

Thanks gcrank1

I did find this advertisement from a 1973 Stoeger catalogue:


Imagine finding one of the gold damascene versions!!
I realize itís blurry but the price for blued engraved was $95.95 versus the gold engraved damascene that cost $459.95 - in 1973!!!
Apparently there was an engraved chrome version also. It sold for $109.95.

I've had several of the 22's and 380's which always seemed to find me, especially in Tulsa. Prices USED to be a bargain for a decent quality pistol with acceptable accuracy for a 10 yard plinker/defense pistol. Enjoy while it functions since spare parts are mummy dust.

happy with my .22 especial that i've owned for 20+ years - reliable solid shooter - parts are getting scarce + expensive - when Stoeger was located in N.J. they had a display case filled with plated + engraved Llama's - i wonder where they all disappeared to -

The Llama XV was my first firearm. Had mine since 1975. Shoots good and is a lot of fun.
