Origin of Huge Grips on 25-2?

    I just picked up today a 25-2 Model of 1955 45acp. Been wanting one a long time and I'm thrilled to acquire it. Found it on one of the gun forum classifieds on another site for $440 shipped.
    Anyway, it's got the largest set of grips on it I ever saw. Does anyone know the origin/brand of these? Was there a specialty use for these grips?

    Back in the days of cave men, if needed, you could burn the grips to keep you warm.... The other theory is you bought Andre the Giant's gun.

    I think those are a pair of discontinued Hogue Target grips. They were for target shooting, obviously. What a great deal you found. That looks awfully nice.

    MrBorland, looks like your link hit the nail square on the head. They were made for prone competition.

    Thanks for the info and compliments guys.

    The Hogue Big Butt grips allowed the revolver butt to be placed on the ground for maximum stability and increased accuracy.
