    hand made by earl "fuzzy" farrant. a former member of the lapd pistol team started making grips in the late 60's early 70's and continued until his death. late 70's or early 80's his son then continued the business until the mid 80's i think there is some sort of connection between farrant and herrett grips ??? maybe herrett bought out farrant ?? but their grips are very much alike. herrett continues to make grips and as i said some designs are much like the farrants. this one had me looking back at past copies of guns and ammo from the 70's to find the answer
