Good point, the customers name is engraved into the bottom plate.
It probably was made to the customer's taste, but I believe the name on the bottom metal is the gunsmith's.

Not sure I'd call this rifle a "sporter" - aside from the action, nothing remains of the original military rifle. Plenty of factory rifles were made in precisely this way in the 50's and 60's.
The rifle is a sporter, meaning it's a sport weight and configuration. Sporter refers to a type of rifle and may be factory new or custom, not exclusively the product of "sporterization" of a military rifle.
