Nightand Fog: I've had an LAR Grizzly Win Mag pistol for almost 20 years. It is one of my favorite guns. Back then one could buy caliber conversion kits for around 150.00. They came in 45acp, 10mm, 357 mag, and 357/45 Grizzly Win Mag. I eventually bought all of the conversion kits. This gun is long out of production, but Perry Arnett, the sole owner of the patent and blue prints, told me via email he is looking to reproduce this gun if he can assemble the right team and backing. He also has other conversion kits engineered, should production begin again. As things are now, these pistols regularly sell for over 1500.00 and the conversion kits go for 300-500 a piece if you can find them. I've see 357/45gwm kits go for 900.00+ Anyway, these are very tight, beefy and well made guns. They should be. Perry supervised production himself.

PoliticalSmackdown: Roy Charles Jr yes getting 45 win mag is impossible and expensive however you can buy new cases and load your own if you want to play with exotics this is sadly the price you pay. 45 win mag is a great round and will stop a truck but it is hard as hell to find. oh if you load i suggest starline brass. they will make it for you.
PoliticalSmackdown: BikerBoyCB900C not that i am trying to give you crap but 1911 variants do not use clips.
PoliticalSmackdown: need magazines for this badly
jtaylorb88: My coworker was one of the families that owned that company. They sold it out to Remington who since have done nothing with it hardly. Those guns now go for a ton of cash! I tell him to start making them again.
Oscar Reyes: In whats Store an i finde ammo
Colin Cutter: I've been wanting to build a 1911 in .45 win mag. The one thing causing me hesitation on doing so is the availability of magazines. I REALLY don't want to pay $150+ per magazines. Does anyone know if there are any magazines that will feed or could easily be modified to feed the cartridge, for example Desert Eagle .44 magnum magazines, or anything like that. If so, any help would be appreciated
BikerBoyCB900C: I had one back in the 80's was a Mark I the firearm was great the clips where crap!!! The firearm was totally unreliable because of it. This was the problem the clips, the ears if you kept the firearm loaded the spring pressure would force the ears up and out and then you would get rounds feeding nose up into the top of the barrel and other feeding issues. What needs to be done is take your clips to a gunsmith minus the follower and spring and have them harden the steel of the clip frame, I heard this solves the problem? I never thought of doing this at the time, I ported the pistol, polished the slide ramp everything and could never get it to function I finally traded it for a Desert Eagle in 44 Mag. Oh and I had the conversion kits for 45 ACP and 357 Mag I think was the other one I had and none of them functions worth a damn!!!
Roy Charles Jr: I've had mine since 1991. Ammo is getting REAL hard to find. Draws a crowd every time at the indoor range.
Eusebiu Skurtu: I don't consider the Grizzly and the Coonan to be 1911's since you can't interchange parts with a Colt 1911. Great guns.
Dhjhgygb S: I have a Contender Barrel chambered in .45 Win Mag
DoubleTap 45: I owned one for many years. Very accurate and fun to shoot.
LA Keith: Bought the LAR Grizzly .45 Win Mag back in 1984 for under 600.00, very fun to shoot. Excellent on deer, need to hand load due to cost and hard to now find ammo for it. Should have purchased two at the time!!!
Aaron Patchin: I own one, blued. I've managed to stockpile 230 and 260grain rounds. I love this gun, probably my favorite. I take pride in being a pointless jackass and I've invested the time in shooting it one handed and got somewhat decent. I love to shoot a couple of rounds out of it and then hand it to an unaware friend and watch them underestimate the gun's recoil, tons of fun.I always have a second guy watch where the brass goes, I don't want my favorite dinosaur to become extinct.
Esteban Velarde: luffy
cameron coke: Lar grizzly
ThyAnswerer: Fell in love with it when I saw it! I want to get one of the models for my first pistol but don't know how that's going to end up for me haha!
