Default Nice rifle rebuilt by Springfield in 1963

The leg etch definitely looks like SA to me.
Many of these are really hard to make out but sometimes the barrel date can be a good clue since it is fairly common for the barrel date to predate the etch by a month or two.
I agree with Shomway that is it from 1963 and I think I see two digits for the month which would make it either October, November or December.

While there is no way to tell what the rifle has done since it was built, you at least know it was at Springfield in 1963.
