Anyone know about a Llama .32 cal (mini 1911)?

Was at my folks this past weekend and was presented this little thing. It was stowed away in a box of LPs and my father tells me he's had it for 30-40 years. I took a few photos, the main identifying marks were:
Stoeger Arms - S. Hackensack, NJ - 6-digit serial [R side of frame, above trigger]
Llama - Gabilondo y Cia Vitoria (Espana) Cal. 32 [left side of slide)

The Google-ing I've done leads me to believe it's a Model XA...and not worth much, save for a fun mousegun.
Still, my dad was interested in it's history (manf. date), possible value, and how old it might actually be. Unfortunately there is no magazine to be found.

That's the first .32 cal I've ever seen in a 1911 style gun.

You'll have to let us know how it shoots.

There were two models, almost identical, one in .32 ACP and the other in .380 ACP. Both externally were scaled down copies of the M1911A1.

Internally, the former is a blowback pistol, the latter has a locked breech with a link, like the M1911A1. I would give the model numbers, but frankly, Llama model numbers are so confusing that I get a headache thinking about the subject.

No kidding. Wikipedia has an article with some decent info, which told me this one is an XA (or something like that)...
Wikipedia - Llama pistol models

At least mags are available (for $20-$30), should I get motivated to try it out...

I own and regularly shoot this exact same Stoeger Llama pistol. quite accurate,low recoil,comfortable with walnut grips. Light weight and smart appearance. I seem to have a little trouble finding an extra magazine for it. I'll give your link a try. Thanks.
