Default Gun show find Farrants

Found this set of Fuzzy Farrants for a K square frame at this weekends gun show. Checkered on both panels and Zebrawood I think. Placed them on my Mod. 15 no dash for photos. Happy to have them and hope you like them.

Beautiful grain. How much did they set you back?

Nice 15.

Very nice find Tim. Interesting that someone marked them J on the inside. I' glad they aren't the ones that require cutting the toe off the frame.

Good find, Kansasgunner, I have several Fuzzy Farrant grips that I ordered from him in the early 70's. Still use and love them.

I seem to remember one of these California grip makers, Farrant or Hurst, using wax pencil to mark grips inside to keep orders straight.
Found these on a table with a hang tag that said J frame square and price was $35. I paid the man and said thank you!

I’ve had a couple of similar experiences (no Farrants yet, though) and always try to examine the unusual or out of the ordinary stocks that may be misidentified and/or underpriced. Sometimes that odd bit of trivia that you know can have some real value!

Nice catch. You rarely see them in Zebra wood.

Tim-I bought a holster for a K-frame 4 inch at the show that doesn’t fit my 4 inch 13. I might trade you in Tulsa for one that works. It’s a pretty nice Bianchi.......haha. Tell Dave. 😁

I had two pairs of Fuzzy Farrants grips.. He custom made them them for me just to fit my hand. I remember sending him a tracing of my had. I used them both on my working guns for years... A friend of mine admired them so I gave him both pair as a gift..

According to Farrant’s order form, they’re likely bacote. Is that the same as zebra wood?

Not your usual Zebra wood pattern but probably in the realm. Grain can vary quite a bit. Here's a set of Jay Scott Zebra wood stocks with several coats of Tung oil...
