Default Carbine Stock Identification

I have a low wood type 3 stock that does not have the M2 selector lever cutout. It is marked RI in the sling channel with a flaming bomb. According to the only info I could find on this RI marking is it was for the Inland M1A paratrooper folding stock model which this stock is not. Can some tell me if this is an Inland stock. Thanks !!.....

I believe it's Richardson, a subcontractor for Inland.

I wonder if it's actually an IR wartime replacement stock with a very bad stamp. It has the flaming bomb, which IR stocks had in the slingwell, plus the font is very similar to IR stocks too.

Just found a I.R spares stock. I.R. is vertical as you hold it. R is similar in the leg being little odd at bottom. and the I looks to a 1. Look at top of the font in picture. Ord Bomb is also consistent with OPs
