I know this has nothing to do with the problem you are having. Others have helped you with that. But I want to share some info that I find interesting.

I have a Model 18-2 that shipped in January, 1968. It wears its original numbered Magna stocks. They do not have the diamond. So at least one .22 Combat Masterpiece was fitted with non-diamond stocks in 1967. I'm sure there were many other revolvers that received the same treatment. This just happens to be the earliest confirmed K frame with non-diamond stocks I have personally encountered.
