    Spanish copy of (probably) the S&W Military and Police. Gabilondo was considered a decent gunmaker and made guns for the Spanish military at one time. Having said that, if it were mine I would not shoot +P in it, or any other M&P for that matter.

    It's difficult to give a value without photos, as condition has a great effect on your revolvers value.

    That said, the Llama revolvers that were sold in the U.S. using the "Ruby" Trade Name, (circa 50's & 60's). Aren't big buck items, sight unseen my WAG is that it would be in the $100 - $200 range. If it's functional, and at least Very Good condition.

    Hello and Welcome Aboard !!!
    Yes , these are of fair quality as per compaired to the s&w it is copied from ...we have had and 'smithed' on a few of these , parts are next to impossible to find , with that in mind as well as the fact that it is what it is , I would NOT shoot it much if any at all !
    Good Luck !!!
