    alternative wooden grip suggestion for original Colt Python

    I have 4" and 6" Colt Pythons (old not new model) and of course love them. However I've never really
    bonded with the original wooden grips for comfort. I have fairly large hands yet still
    still they feel a tad large in my hand and not that comfortable a fit.
    I'd sure appreciate any suggestions for alternative wooden grips - Eagle combat
    grips appear a close possibility. Sure appreciate thoughts and even photos if possible
    of your alternative wooden grips.

    Much appreciated thank you

    Check out Altamont grips. They do a nice set with finger grooves.

    There lots of options and grip makers who have patterns for the Colt E/I frame revolvers. You can simply do a web search for custom Python stocks and you'll likely find a bewildering number to choose from.

    A lot of Colt owners like the Hogue Mono-Grip for the feel and solid mount on the frame.
    Hogue's seem to fit most Colt owners better then most any other, and give a shorter reach to the trigger due to the way they're shaped.

    You can order Hogue's in fancy woods or in rubber, and they offer a number of options like with or without finger grooves, checkering, and contrasting wood grip caps.

    Another option is Herrett's. They're an old line grip maker, and they offer the option of you sending in a tracing of your hand and they'll fit the grips to you.

    Gun stocks by Herrett's Stocks, Inc.

    There are many grip makers who offer all sorts of wood, laminated, or synthetic grips.
    Among them are very high end makers of the finest total custom grips possible, made of super high grade woods like Culina and Brown. Bring a well-loaded wallet for these....

    Here is an option if you can find them - Keith Brown grips for impending 4.25" SS, being modeled by a 6" blued. Below are old Sanderson targets on a 686.

    I have large hands too and have Hogue finger-groove hardwoods on all my magnum D/A sixguns , Colt and S&W.

    The “factory “ grips that fit me best are the Elite style shown on my Trooper 357
