Default USMC stock?

Is the stippling on this butt plate possible USMC or just a bubba job? Its on a Rock Island stock with a Springfield rifle. The rifle shows no other signs of a USMC rebuild.

I think it looks good. It's certainly old and not done yesterday.

You never see two buttplates the same. Some have punch marks, some have chisel marks, you even seem some with both chisel and punch marks.

This one isn't the norm, but I don't think it's fake either.

Out of curiosity what is the serial range and barrel date?

I have a rifle real close to that one, 192#s later with a 1-18 barrel.
