Default Real 1903A4 Scant Stock?

I picked this scant stock up some time back. I would like to find out if this is an authentic 1903A4 stock. Any information the group can provide regarding whether it is real or fake is appreciated. I'll probably be getting rid of this either way. Too many projects and not enough time.

Looks real to me. If there are no inspectors, P, ordnance wheel, FJA, then it is a Keystone replacement stock.

Bolt cutout looks correctly cut.

5 stamps in front of trigger guard or 4? Also is one of them a number?

The only marking is the Keystone K in the mag cutoff. I can't find any other marking on this stock, not even faint ones.

The stock looks to have been sanded down at some point, from the look of the smoothed out dings and scratches. It is possible that any stampings could have been removed when the stock was refinished/sanded.

Perhaps the best way to check on whether or not it is from a sniper 03A4 would be to try fitting a receiver with the proper "bent" bolt into it.

I have seen a number of 1903 and 03A3 stocks with similar bolt cuts which were done for sporterized guns with bolts bent for scope. However, most of those stocks were also cut off short near the forward sling band.
