Although for the life of me, I can't figure out why someone would install a recoil pad on a 30 carbine.
One puts a pad on a light recoiling rifle for its non-slip properties (over a steel buttplate), not for recoil reduction.

I would be curious about the "Bavaria Game Warden" marking. A carbine used by an actual Bavarian Game Warden wouldn't be marked that way, in English.

My best guess would be the scope base was mounted and the gun marked that way as a marketing name for some large (probably mail order) supply house sometime in the early 60s.
but, that's a total guess...
