Default Pre-Model 34 Stocks Question

Does anyone know if a set of more recent manufacture factory stocks for a square butt J frame model like a Model 34 or 63 would fit properly on a 1955 manufactured Model of 1953 .22/32 Kit Gun AKA Pre-Model 34 ? Or were there changes in the grip frame dimensions that would preclude using factory stocks made in the 1960's or 70's ?
Thanks

Any Model of 1953 New I frame square butt grip frame stocks up thru 1960 are the correct size, and have the correct diamond in the center.

Any Model of 1953 New J frame square butt grip frame stocks up to the present are the correct size, and will have the correct diamond in the center up thru 1968.

Also the optional small frame Target stocks are the correct size, although none of them have a diamond center.



The Model 65 is a K frame and it's stocks will not fit, But I presume you meant the Model 35, .22/32 Target, and they are the correct size.

Thanks Hondo, I mis-typed Model 65 but was thinking of a Model 63. Or a Model 35.
