I got this typical 90s fork. My guess is a Rock Shox Mag but which one?
All decals are gone.

steerer tube is about 5.5" / 14cm
steerer tube diameter is 1"
steerer tube is threaded

Any clues?

Looks like a 20 whit a later (or replacement as the originals failed) crown black plastic dials were replaced by metal ones with sharp corners on the 21's

Cool! And what about the fork brace? This one is not the same as the original?

going by what I can see on my tiny screen

1993 MAG21 and someone has chopped the hanger of the brace. Everything looks original otherwise.

IMHO the brace is the original one but cut and repainted, the canti hanger is missing. I´ve done this couple of times myself :-)
Not sure about the 20/21 issue, I´d say Mag 20.

Now with larger pictures..
Definaty a 1993 MAG21

MAG20 (1992) main visual difference is the lower legs are different style, different crown er different brace ;)

Visual element that make it a 1993MAG21 (and not 1994/5/6+):
Brace : has three holes for the canti stud, you cannot really see the other difference in the pictures (you can see the chop marks on the brace in the bottom picture by the way)
Crown : Classic ring under the crown where it clamps a stanchion being the easiest.
TopCap: 1993 style, 1994 they moved to larger machined get your finger in style.

Of course all these can be jiggled with other years as can most of the internals
