There were some Square butts, but I believe most were Round Butts. Not quite sure what you mean by "PC Grips".
Hope this helps...

Rojo,
The proper term would be Modified Magnas. The term PC grips is sort of a nickname.

The Model 10 has been produced for a long time. There are both square butt and round butt models.

I've seen both Modified Magnas and regular (squared off bottom) Magnas on Model 10s. I'm not sure what determined which was put on at the factory.

Standard Stocks for post war Model 10's and Pre-10's made after about 1948 were the "Modified Magna" type as per my photo that you put up here.

As my friend Carl indicates, both square and round butt patterns were available, but after the Second World War the largest percentage were square butts. (Thank You Carl for usage of the correct nomenclature.... the "other" slang description is like fingernails on a chalk board to me...)

10's, Pre-10's and 10's of all Dash Numbers made after 1948-49 may be seen with Target Stocks and in fact, some may have shipped with these, but again, most post war Model 10's were originally fitted with some sort of Magna stock.

You are confused. Let me straighten you out.

In your photograph the STOCKS on the frame seen on the left are Standard "Magna" Stocks.

Those on the right are "Modified Magnas". Some uninformed folks call these "PC" stocks but that is not the earliest, correct, terminology. Anyone who has been around cops knows that guns sporting these stocks saw more use in Belt Holsters than in concealed carry.

Now that we have that resolved, yes, the stock type on the right were regularly fitted to Model 10's.

We got it now?
