Morini Competition Arm S.A. was established in Italy in 1973 as an anatomical grip maker for target pistols. Back then, shooters still hadn't started using personalized grips, all attention having been focused on the mechanical aspect of the gun.
Morini's were the first grips whose anatomical design was considered to be of paramount importance. From the beginning, at Morini the grip was seen as the interface between gun & shooter and therefore a very important element of harmony.
Increased grip production due to orders from Hämmerli and the production of the company's first free pistol in 1980 (model CM 80) resulted in Morini increasing its production capacity, going from a small scale workshop to an industrial company in 1982.
