    There is a "P" behind the trigger and a partial square in the stock with a star on top, "FA" in the middle and "69" on the bottom. I did some research and the stock is Italian Armory Marking. It stands for Fabbrica Armi Terni. There are no import marks on the barrel or receiver. Someone changed the stock at one point but for a seventy year old rifle I guess that to be expected. Here's some more information I found, Underwood only produced 8.9% of the total production of war time M1's.
