    Yes,
    I just purchased a set of gen 3s to put on my new Python. They arrived yesterday, unfortunately my gun is packaged up to return to Colt though....

    I tried a set of my repro grips on a 2020 Python today, and it was a perfect fit. Seems like the grip frame is identical with the "classic" Python, so you should be able to use any new or old Python grips on any new or old Python.

    I didn't think so at first, but they're starting to grow on me. If nothing else, they handle recoil well. At least for me they do.

    Have not seen one in person. But to me they look like Thailand specials.

    Well these answers told me what I needed,so yesterday I left a deposit at my local place. Their price is $1449+ and I have to wait for the state of CA to approve ( add this revolver to the states list) this new Colt. I do prefer my old grips as opposed to the ones that are shown on the new model. If old style grips would not fit,I wouldn’t even consider buying one. Pete

    It’s hard to beat the beauty of the originals. This is a diamondback that I acquired a few years ago but still

    The new Python grips are almost surely made for Colt by Altamont.
    Altamont is a major maker of OEM wood grips and stocks for many gun makers.

    Some people don't like laminated phenolic injected wood, but they're very durable and many people do think they look very nice.
    With the price and availability of higher grade Walnut these days, Altamont is able to source very nicely grained wood grips that look much better then the poorly grained, light colored walnut that was being used.
    Many of the last of the original Third Type Target grips used by Colt had virtually no grain and were often a weird Blond or Orange color.
