Default M1911 AA Rework Stippling ?

I recently acquired this Colt M1911 Augusta Arsenal Rework from an advanced collector. The pistol was manufactured in 1918. I know it is in the 'Black Army' serial number range and it has the scalloped lightening cuts. The pistol has WW2 stocks, a HS marked barrel with the P (looks new), the magazine release looks new and is black, and the hammer is not parked. The magazine is an unmarked Colt WW2 replacement (I think)

My question is about the stippling? ANYONE's theory is appreciated? It appears it was stippled prior to the park refinish? Where / who would have done this in the Army? I do not think Augusta Arsenal would have done this? or am I wrong? Also any estimates when this may have passed through AA?
