Anyone used these? How's the quality and spec? $69 for 3+ in the latest Shotgun News.

That looks like it says West Jordan, UT. Do you have some contact info for them? I couldn't find them in the phone book.

I think ian could help you out.

He told me LAR makes lowers for Bushmaster and Ameetec.

You must buy 3 to get the $69 price...

Also, IIRC the SGN ad is by JoeKen, which has a less than stellar rep...

I planned on buying 4, which is why the price caught my eye. It's not only a really good price, they are fairly unique lowers. I've heard the reputation, but have never experienced it first hand.

I was just curious about what everyone else way paying. I put a call in to LAR today for a price direct to me for 4 lowers. Hopefully I'll hear back from them tomorrow. With shipping, Joeken's prices work out to about $76/ea. Then I have to add in the transfer cost.

Medicmandan, you live here in Utah, right? Make friends with someone with an FFL locally and they can just drive down and pick them up for you. That will save you some shipping costs on an already inexpensive receiver.

Just spoke with Dave from LAR. Very nice guy. Unfortunately they don't sell direct to the public. Guess I'll have to buy from my FFL.

I ordered three of these LAR Grizzly lowers from the ad in SGN from Joeken. Some one earlier mentioned there rep was less than great. Well, I can see where that comes from. But thats another story. They told me on the phone, when I called to figure out what was taking my order so long, that they would be out of the Grizzly lowers until later this week. They said on Sept. 14th they sold completely out of them. We'll see exactly how long it takes now that the confusion has been cleared up.

Do they have a web sit?

In defense of Joeken. I only ordered stuff from them once, but the guy on the phone was very nice. Who knows. Almost every place has a dick or two. Catch a place at the wrong time and you might be talkin' to that guy. Again, Joeken was polite to me and shipped my stuff fast.

My FFL ordered the last 6 they had in stock yesterday morning. On Monday of this week LAR sold 500 stripper lowers. He said they were going to start forging more on Thursday. Should be ready in a couple of days.

Your order went out today. I shipped 8 Lowers, 2 A2s & 1 A3 to you guys. I will have more in stock next week. I'm just waiting for my anodize guys to get me some more.
Thanks
Dave

Dave, tell us a little bit about the receivers. Are they forged or cast? It it true that you've sold them to Bushmaster? It doesn't mention the AR receivers on your website, just the .50 cals you sell. Anyway, tell us a little bit about them. They look good (based on the picture in this thread). I really like the grizzly.

Hey, good to know. I guess I just need to look more closely at their site. Thanks Eddie.

LAR Mfg. has been manufacturing upper & lower receivers for about 30 years. When sales are up we can produce about 8,000 to 10,000 Receivers a month. A small percentage of those sales are actually the Grizzly. I cant reveal who my customers are so please don’t ask. I will say that Bushmaster does have one of the most well made guns in the industry.
Thanks

Thanks Dave, I picked them up on Monday night. They look great. I have already mounted a barrel to one of the uppers. I will post some pics, hopefully tonight to those who want to see.

Dave_LAR - It's nice to see you signed on! It's always great with manufactures and industry folks participate. I have a few Grizzly lowers waiting for me at my local shop and I can hardly wait to pick them up. Thanks!

ORF has these in stock for $90, I saw today.
