    Hello,
    I'm sure I won't get to much response to this.
    I'm thinking there's not too many Grizzly owners here.
    If you do have a LAR Grizzly, do you holster it ?
    If so, in what ? I know LAR made some Leather back in the day.
    Do the Grizzly's happen to fit in some holster designed for another gun ?

    Nice LAR! Is it a 50AE? I have been wanting one but I don't see them around much. Those I saw were... err... a little pricey?
    Sorry I have no answer, but I have looked a lot at different leather smiths lately, looking for a perfect couple of holsters, one for protected carry when hunting and another for ccw. Quite a few places will custom make one to a gun, cost not being much higher.
    BTW, how does the LAR shoot? Recoil heavy or not?

    Wow

    Hello PaulDaisy,
    This one is actually the MK IV which is the 44 magnum version.
    I felt that this one would not take me to the cleaners everytime I went to shoot it, yet it's still a very collectable version of the Grizzly as I have not found many of the mark 4's anywhere.
    I'm wondering if it will just tuck into a bottomless 1911 holster to accomodate the Compensator ?
    I have not had the pleasure of shooting her yet. I have not been to the range in a long time and there's a list of guns that will be going next time.

    Thanks, Jeff (GUNKWAZY)

    I have a Grizzly, a MkI in .45 Winmag. It will fit in a couple of cheap nylon generic holsters that I have. One is a shoulder holster, vertical style, and the other is a belt holster.

    Yes, I remember seeing LAR holsters for sale last century. There was one on E-Bay earlier this week.

    I feel a little silly putting such an expensive gun in such a cheap holster. However, I don't feel silly enough to pay mega$$$$ for an original holster, or to have one custom made.

    The Grizzly is a great gun, I wish some one would put it back in production. There is an LAR Grizzly forum that I have visited. I felt silly for paying $40 for my 2 spare magazines, look at the price for magazines now!

    Grizzly

    Do you remember what the holsters were designed to fit ?

    Also, do you have the address for the Grizzly forum ?

    Thanks, Jeff (GUNKWAZY)

    The shoulder holster is a Bianchi Ranger, size #5. It is not open on the bottom, so your comp equipped pistol probably won't fit. Mine is a 5.5" uncomped version. It is not exactly comfortable with the heavy Grizzly, but at least it works.

    The belt holster is a generic nylon model, complete with adjustable velcro straps, and ambidextrous belt slots. It has no markings whatsoever. I bought it about 15 years ago at a gun show. It will hold a variety of handguns, not well, but passably so. It is open on the bottom, so it might accomodate a comp gun.

    This forum is not very active. Maybe we can change that.

    I hope all this helps.
