Pre-war magnas. Post war stocks are slightly shorter and will leave a bit of the frame, a bit over 1/16", exposed at the bottom. Just doesn't look right that way.

Actually the reason for the post-war stocks being short is the N-Frame was a bit longer pre-war. When re-introduced after WWII the grip frame was shortened slightly and the stocks were made to match the shorter frame.
