Default Neither Bavarian nor Austrian marked, so what?

I have had a number of so called Bavarian carbines and find the history fascinating. These are, for the most part, WWII time machines that missed the late war/post war "upgrades".
This one is by Quality Hardware with Rockola barrel. The barrel is undated, but does bear the "P" proof mark.
The left receiver rail is unmarked and has no signs of having had markings ground off.
There are no markings on the bottom of the trigger group.
There are parts of the SN stamped all over the carbine, to include some bolt heads.
The rear sight is the early type, flip sight.
The bbl. band is a Type 1.
The safety is the early push button type.
The stock is very handsome, but too shiny for my liking. I did read that in the mid 1950s some of the carbines in German hands got a Varathane finish on the wood, which this does look like.
So, to my question: What country did use this US M1 Carbine?
