Sorry. To me (and probably most member of any gun forum) the term "correct" means "what the manufacturer put on the gun when they shipped it.) The best way to ask if something will fit is probably "Will these fit my gun?"

Sorry to have confused you. It was probably silly of me to assume an actual picture of the aftermarket stocks in the question was sufficient to avoid this kind of misunderstanding.

The wood that D illustrated came on my DS in 1981.
That SHOULD be what came on the 1983 gun, but with Colt using old parts here & there over the years it's hard to make absolute statements about originality in some cases.

That was the last wood grip configuration before Colt switched to rubber.
