LAR Grizzly T-50 .50BMG

The LAR Manufacturing Grizzly T-50 is a beast. Designed to be capable of being shoulder fired, it was no accident that a muscular guy was manning the booth of this .50 BMG single shot bullpup. At its shortest barrel length, 32″, it weighs in at 30.4 pounds, and thats without a scope, bipod, rails and carry handle! The rifle starts at $3,200.

    I don’t get it. Apologies to the fans of this rifle but I’ve never seen one in any gun store, I don’t know of anyone that even knows of anyone that has one. And that’s a .50 that’s actually legal to own in Connecticut.

    I guess my wonderment stems from how they stay in business when that’s the only gun they sell. That and I miss my Grizzly MK V. Had I known they were about to stop making them (back in the day) I would have never sold it. Today if you want a magnum semi auto you’re stuck with a Desert Eagle or a Coonan. And I don’t think we’ll see a .45 Winmag Coonan anytime soon. Or ever.

    To add: If I recall correctly I believe they make AR-15 lowers too. Possibly for other AR makers. I guess that’s how they stay afloat.

    i think LAR makes some accessories as well, im not sure, this is a cool gun but it looks like it might tear off an arm or two…

    I don’t know what all they make, but being essentially a machine shop you can make a dozen 50 cals or 100 and moth ball them on a shelf. You then fill your production schedule with aerospace parts, pre production automobile stuff, medical stuff etc.

    Take one of the zeros off the price tag and ill buy one right NOW!

    If I had land that went 1,000 yards (even if it was narrow 1/4 mile wide). I would have a 50 cal.

    As it is, I am a city boy and don’t even know anyone with more than 200 acres, and most ranges in michigan are 100 or 200 yards with few going out to 300 yards.
