Default 1903 Stock Marking Identification?

Hey all,

I have a springfield 1903 manufactured in late 1909 with a Jan 1910 barrel, SN 382719. On the stick underneath the magazine cutoff groove there is an vertical RR marking in wood. The rest of the stock has the normal JFC cartouche and script P proof. It is a highwood stock right before the transition. No other markings are visible. I want to know if anyone has an idea what the RR marking stands for? It was mentioned it could be an SA inspection mark. It was also mentioned of the possibilty of the rifle being an NRA sales rifle. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

-Michael

Most markings in that spot are unknown subinspection stamps.

Thanks for the additional pictures. The "R R" marking in the cutoff recess means that your rifle has been re-stocked.
