Yes those stocks are ruined, they were not designed for the New Service.

For some reason I got this idea of altering a set of Herrett's Python stocks to fit the New Service, needless to say it did not work out so well. But I think that these Colt stocks in question might be savable by glass bedding them to whatever revolver one wanted to fit them to. Or just leave them on the New Service.

I have two sets of OMM stocks that were modified to fit NS's. They still fit an E/I frame. All that I had to do was add a spacer to the bottom where they had ben trimmed. They still had the original locator pin hole. They would just wobble without the spacer.
The West wasn't won with a registered gun.
Thanks everyone for all the info.. It really helps a lot! Im excited to take these to the range and figure out what I like to shoot!
