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
Sweet water 420: Dude you posted this video in 2010 post a video of you shooting it already

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.
GrapeApeVine: lol i seen this video like 4years ago... i just realized your edges
buddy... great story on the washers!! lol
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!!!
Oscar Reyes: In whats Store an i finde ammo
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.
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
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!!!
Dhjhgygb S: I have a Contender Barrel chambered in .45 Win Mag
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.
George Z.: I love this pistol and caliber but isn't more powerful than the desert
eagle. .50 AE shoots up to a 325 grain bullet at velocities I don't
currently know but the energy ft lbs is much more.
Z-Boys Gun Channel: im kickin myself for not buying one of these years ago
13thmistral: ownage of desert eages, who are often heard about being unreliable i woud
DangerousDan762: That is one awesome hand cannon. Reminds me of Charles Bronson's Wildey
magnum from one of the Death Wish movies.
hyena429: Very nice gun...I like magnums..hehe...I got a 45 win mag too...Its a
AMT..I left a link if you would like to check it out...great vids..and
channel you have
Ajay Singh: hey man i just bought .45 win mag rounds instead of .45 acp by mistake ,did
you whant to buy them off me i have no need for them.
MrAlucard222: The Desert Eagle is absolutely not unreliable, it's a wonderful semi-auto
built like a tank... All the bad stories about the DE are only myths,
nothing more, by people that hate the gun for his popularity... The
accuracy is amazing, better than any 1911, and is reliable as or even more
than a 1911 design, i talk for experience... Don't believe at all the bad
stories about the DE... However, the LAR Grizzly is a wonderful semi-auto...
IcabodCrane: @gmanbeavis I'm pretty sure the Grizzly also came in a .50 AE, and I know
that AMT/IMI made an Automag that fires it. .45 Winchester Mags aren't
quite as potent as the 50 AE but due to the light slugs you can find
handloads on various websites that'll drive to velocities that the .50 AE
tuffnutt34: I thought it was a Grizzly but only knew they made one in 357 mag
James Gu: I am interested. Please let me know if it is available and what you are
godzilla2472: Exactly, that's what what I was also trying to tell him
johnny wadd: Love the gun--I have Mark 4 44mag and love it.
TheWitnesserer: "They went out to buy a washing maching and this is what they both came
home with." Hahahahah, awesome. That's similar to how my dad got his .475
Wildey Magnum. Only he was saving up to buy my mom a new oven. xD
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.
Tony King: Dear santa..........
deathmetal44: i want those:)
Anomalous01: I use 18.4 grains of Blue dot in Starline brass with a Winchester 230 fmj
or 25 grains of 2400. Recoil is way beyond my 44 Magnum but less than the
454 Casul Raging Bull. Brutally fun gun to shoot, but you will likely have
to make your own ammo. I don't know of any commercial ammo being produced
Hunter White: how much for all of them?
DailyChannel: ? I found one for sale for 1200.00 I can get it its not chrome its blue
with a duracoat on the slide. it has the compensator also with 100 rounds
ammoin 45 winmag. is this worth the 1200 price I can trade the guy a fn
seven even the gun works fine the seller said. Its only minor scuffs and
standard wear on slide. what do you think? is it worth it over the fn seven
IcabodCrane: @IRishAristocrat OH HELLS TO THE YEAH! What kind of magazine capacity do
you get with this conversion?
murpheysmuskets: @IRishAristocrat Again that's awesome. I'm gonna have to look into that!
johnmanningnavy1983: Got a Mark 1 and it is awesome. Have tocall winchester to get the ammo but
when I do, I get alot and my wife is pissed when she finds out how much I
spent on it. Great gun. Lar doesn't make them anymore but they still make
the parts for them so get some mags for it before you can't anymore.
DoinLifeProductions: @murpheysmuskets Do you think its more powerful then the 44mag ?
Kevin Leathers: @murpheysmuskets The LAR Grizz in .45 Win. Mag. can be loaded similarly to
what you would do with your .44 Mag. I use a variety of bullet weights in
mine. The most powerful load I have used is 29 gr. of 296 under a 250 gr.
bullet. That is total over-kill, and since they don't make these fine
weapons anymore, I rarely use heavy loads these days. 39 of the 49 parts in
the Grizz will interchange with any mil. spec. 1911, so that is nice.
Expect to pay at least $1000 now days.
godzilla2472: @IcabodCrane i never said the 1911 style was not reliable i said that the
50 ae is more powerful than the 45 winmag
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!
murpheysmuskets: @Geistgein Loaded to the Max like Ive got it in my shooting video they kick
about like a 44 Magnum. Definitely not for someone afraid of recoil.
murpheysmuskets: @theArmedJanitor lol ya i was gonna use a different title...but then i
figured nobody would find it in a search. Fail i know
TheFirearmEnthusiast: Saw a blued one at a gun show in Australia. Very nice.
IcabodCrane: @godzilla2472 "Stronger" than the Desert Eagle is relative. the Deagle is
little more than a toy...it's notorious for stovepiping, it's ridiculously
heavy, it's complicated, and it's nowhere near as reliable as a 1911
design. A lot of people will spew the nonsensical "a toy can't kill
someone" as if you can't choke someone with a jump rope or stick a toy
sword into somebody's brain...but the DE is all but entirely useless for
anything but target shooting. Though unlikely, the Grizzly is viable
Mightymoose02: Nice video, but get a tripod...
tuffnutt34: @murpheysmuskets that's cool, learn something new everyday, I first seen
one of the 357 ones when I just got out of high school and I wanted one of
Lexo B: great gun! that was cool story about washing machine hahhaha :)... sorry
you had to grew up in divorced family because i think thats what happen
when your father brought LAR instead of LG washing machine :)
