Grizzly is a 1976 horror film that centers around a fifteen foot tall grizzly bear (Even though the poster says 18 feet, the film confirms the bear to be fifteen feet tall) terrorizing campers in a national forest. The film's cast includes Christopher George, Andrew Prine, Richard Jaeckel, Joan McCall, and Joe Dorsey, and was directed by William Girdler, who would go on to direct another animal attack film in 1977's Day of the Animals. Grizzly was made to cash in on the "giant animals attack" craze of the mid to late 1970s that began with the Spielberg film Jaws (1975). A sequel titled Grizzly II: The Predator was filmed in 1983 in Hungary, with Joan McCall reprising her role, and featured John Rhys-Davies, along with early roles for George Clooney, Charlie Sheen, and Laura Dern. However, the film suffered financial issues and the producer had fled with the film's funds, leaving the film unreleased. The original workprint has been bootlegged and can be found on the internet, with all footage of the bear missing (as the majority of its scenes had not yet been filmed.

Ranger Tom (Tom Arcuragi) is seen using an M1917 Enfield against the bear when it attacks him in a fire tower. A lone hunter (David M. Holt Jr.) also uses an Enfield, but drops the rifle when he encounters the bear (The gun then mysteriously transforms into a lever-action rifle).

Winchester Model 70

The Winchester Model 70 appears to be standard issue to the park rangers, and many hunters also use them. Michael Kelly (Christopher George) and Don Stober (Andrew Prine) are also armed with bolt action rifles.

M1 Rocket Launcher "Bazooka"

Kelly uses a mockup of a an M1 rocket launcher (which belonged to Dan, who kept it after his tour in Vietnam). The M1 is the first variant of the M1 Rocket launcher series and is actually an early WW2 vintage weapon and not a weapon that would have been used in Vietnam. In the film, the M1 Mockup is a little too short.
