I just replaced the magazine spring in my 20a with the full-length magazine. The factory follower in my rifle looks like the bottom one in your picture.

I don't know how long the replacement spring was. I received it, along with some other spare parts, when I purchased the rifle. It was a long sucker though! After test fitting and checking the spring pressure at the follower, I elected to cut 8" off the end before installing it. These magazine designs are pretty delicate and I really had my doubts the entire length if spring had enough room to compress without coil binding before the loading port was revealed. The resulting spring length works perfect.
