Question About Charter Grips: do the old ones fit the newer guns?

Just a simple question for those of you who may know... I have a Charter Arms Pathfinder and I'd like to get some wood grips for it (without paying a whole lot). I've seen cheap ones on Ebay that are for the old-school charters. Does anyone know if the old grips are compatible on the new guns they've been making over the last several years?
Thanks in advance.

Ok, I guess that was a really simple question. Here's another layer: would the old bulldog grips fit a new pathfinder? (I am thinking that they are all built on the same frame, so they all take the same grips?)

The grips on my new Bulldog and Pathfinder are interchangeable. I'm pretty sure all of Charter's guns use the same grips.

Crazy88fingers is correct. I have switched grips from an older Bulldog and a newer Mag Pug. I have also switched grips from different generations of Undercovers.

I just bought a Crimson Trace for my wife's Lady...the box says "Fits Charter Arms .22, .32, .327, .38 Special, .357 and .44 Bulldog *except* Dixie Derringer and South Paw"

I'd say yes...

Here's a new Bulldog .44 wearing grips from a vintage Police Bulldog .38.

Same Bulldog wearing vintage Undercover grips.
