Garand cheek pad
 
I believe this is repro, but then wonder why they'd bother MRTing a repro cheek pad?

I vote repop. What color are the felt pads? If anything but grey, definitely repop.

Yes that is a repro. The sititching on a real USGI always ends with a small triangle of the thread. This one has a straight stitch back upon itself.

As far as stamping it I'm assuming it's either done to look more authentic or someone's attempt at passing it as real.
