The circle P is indeed a proof mark. It is applied after the rifle has been successfully proof fired.

Most mil-surps have a assortment of marking from different inspectors and generally only have one or two "Proof" marks.

Could this be a poor fake, or just a sloppy original?
I would think a original. The Smith Corona in the pic has several Rem parts and the wood has been heavily sanded.
