Never seen, much less held, one until today. Local pawnshop in South AL.
Ok, sooooo, it's a Mark I...did you buy it? What's with the Century Arms brochure and the Tanfoglio case? Any extra mags? Ammo? Overall condition? Price?
I remember seeing them every now and then at certain gun stores. Had forgotten about them.
They want 1500. The brochures and case were used as backdrop instead of the glass counter full of guns. gun seemed tight but the floor plate of the mag looked tilted with part of it IN the mag tube.
Did not buy it.
I have had about a dozen Grizzlys since the late 80's. Calibers include 45 ACP, 357 Magnum, 10mm, 357/45 GWM, 45 WinMag, 44 Rem Mag, and 50AE. They also made at least one in 9mm WinMag. Additionally they made 8" and 10" long slide versions but I believe those were only Mark I's. No 44 Mags or 50AE long slides. Currently I have one Mark I will all the caliber conversions and a NIB Mark IV.
P.S. $1500 is a bit high for that gun. $1300 is more like it.
I don't know any technical details of those guns but wonder if the 45 Win Mag, 44 Mag and 50DE would result in a much shorter service life as they're far more powerful than what the 1911 was designed for. Don
I fired several thousand rounds through a couple of my guns and I never had any broken parts, however the recoil spring guides did need to be replaced from time to time. This is one from a 1988 6.5" 45 WinMag that had about a thousand nuclear over-loads fired through it. When the guide gets this beat up, it's difficult to disassemble the pistol.
It gets real interesting when the guide rod breaks.
The 45 Win Mag is an interesting caliber. Lots of noise lots of thump. A real head turner at the range.
It will turn a big can of creamed corn into a real mess.
I would also think $1500 is on the high side. The last one I saw in the LGS was listed at $1200.
Handled a bunch and shot a couple. Never had the desire to own one.
The bad boy LAR Grizzley pistol would've been the perfect platform for the 10mm Magnum.
You'd have a round or two extra in the magazine over the .45 Win.Mag.
