Shoot something with it!  I like the red color.  Has a rest on both sides for righty or lefty?

I believe your grizzly was made in 1951.  It looks like it has an aluminum lamination which was only availible in 1951 when they discontinued it later that year due to breakage.  The latest it was made was 1953 when the “small” bear logo was changed to a larger version.

Im correcting myself and believe your grizzly is a 1953-1956 bear grizzly.  The logo is the larger bear which was on thier bows from 1953-1957.  The 1957 grizzly had a black/white tips and the last year the static tip was offered

Throw it the hell out. Shoot a crossbow and kill the dam thing.  We have become smarter and have the technology why do hunters want to go backwards.  I want to play Indian and wound the deer :shakehead: not me I want to kill the animals and have a nice short tracking job.  Come on Indians what you got. You going to skin me next ?

Nice looking bow, would've taken you up if it was a higher poundage, saw a beat up one on ebay a few months ago, something like 82 pounds, surprised they even made them that strong back then, guess there was a market for it.
