How were Garands used by the USMC marked? USMC, Us Govt, US NAVY?

The only M1s marked as a Branch of the Military I know of are the USN Trophy M1s.
I have seen M1s with barracks rack numbers painted or stamped on the stock in various places.

The Marine Corps didn't mark M1 rifles beyond the standard stamps as applied at the arsenal that built them.

The local gun shop had ( I am not sure they still have it) a garand that was clearly marked US Navy I got go look again. As I recall he was asking about $700. I am sure it was 30-06 and not 7.62.
