I am thinking you have your rifle posted in the wrong part of the forum, maybe? I have not seen any Marine Corps marked Snipers etched like yours yet, so it would be cool if yours was.
An M1C and an M1D are both Sniper variations on the M1 Garand. You can look further back in the forum and see the rifles have scopes attached. Both versions, M1C and M1D are represented pretty close above.

Is your rifle a Sniper version, either M1C or M1D?

The mark on the R/S of the stock is actually an inked-in "O" or "0" (zero)..

I cannot read the letter in front of the "D" that is located on the L/S under the rear sight.

Edit: there is what looks like a faint Circled "P" on the front of the pistol grip.

Ulferht, you posted pics in the M1C or M1D sniper rifle thread. I think you meant to post in the regular M1 Garand thread, which is this one: http://forums.thecmp.org/showthread.php?t=259&page=213

That said, a USMC rebuild is a neat M1 to have.

The first pic looks like its marked/stamped "MRD" for MR - Mt. Rainier Ordnance Depot. The D is likely an inspector stamp. This would be a rebuild marking.
I have a similar marked stock....https://i.postimg.cc/hj72zphv/M1-Gar...-stock-009.jpg

These are pics of Garand sniper rifles.....M1C and M1D

Guess I'm too blind to own a Garand and/or too ignorant to post in a forum...just noticed I posted in a Sniper thread..
