Dave is correct. The Marines would most likely have sanitized any stamps that was on the stock through heavy sanding or replaced it with an unmarked birch stock. Some USMC stocks may have an A on the pistol grip however it is not known for sure what the A represents but it's thought to represent Albany which was a USMC facility that rebuilt Garands.

Unfortunately, there's no telling when the stock was changed out....but I wouldn't sweat it if it were mine. That is a fantastic looking rifle with lots of history. I imagine most, if not all of us, would love to add a rebuild like that one to our collection.

Unmarked USGI stocks are cheap to buy and readily available. I recently acquired a WRA 0-66 with a CMP stock set on it and that's what I did with it.

Ive got a unmarked one that's Walnut. Perhaps I'll change it and use the AAX stock on one of my CMP stocked rifles.

Default Really nice Augusta Rebuild marking

These earlier rebuild-marked stocks from Augusta Arsenal typically don't have marking nearly that clear.
Of the ones I have images of this one is the best by far.

You have an excellent M1. The stock set matches, metal looks great, and it gauges well.

It should provide you with years of enjoyment.
