LAR Grizzly Pistol
The Grizzly Win Mag pistol has been developed during early 1980s by L.A.R. Manufacturing Inc (USA; L.A.R. stands for names of company founders - Larisch, Augat and Robinson). This pistol was been designed around the very powerful .45 Winchester Magnum. Standard Grizzly Mark I pistols were sold chambered in .45 Win Mag, but patented factory conversion kits were available for additional calibers, including .45ACP, 10mm Auto, .357 Magnum and several others. Later on, LAR manufacturing also introduced two slightly enlarged version of the Grizzly, known as Mark IV and Mark V. Mark IV pistols were chambered for popular .44 Magnum revolver round; Mark V were chambered for very powerful .50AE ammunition. Although the manufacture of Grizzly pistols stopped in 1998, L.A.R. Manufacturing Inc is still in business and still offers spare parts on a very limited basis for Grizzly Win Mag pistols.
Not to be confused with the LAR Grizzly Big Boar, a sniper rifle.
