    Very well said.
    I suspect the OP was looking at a MiniMax 40 which comes as a single stack or doublestack. It also was sold in a sub-Mini. I have had two of the Minimax in 9mm singlestack. One of these was the only problem Llama I have ever had. the one i have now is a chromed (not stainless) single-stack 9mm, and it runs like a train.
    But back to the earlier topic of wear: The fire control parts on these - trigger, sear, disconnector, hammer etc all interchange with Colt. I have replaced every small part on one with Wilson parts, with no unexpected fitting.
    The problem in a high round count gun would be worn slide/barrel lugs. that is aggravated/accelerated if the original fitting is not optimal, as is the case with low-end products. Interchangeability of those (with common or Colt parts) is questionable, but possible. The 5" 1911s seem standard, but when you get into 1911s with 3" barrels, even the high-end makes don't seem to be standardised on barrel fitment.
