1903 Springfield markings - question

I have a Sporterized Remington 1903 sn 31159xx and I found the initials "DYE" stamped on the bottom of the barrel. Its an original barrel with a 5/42 barrel date. Anyone know what the "DYE" stands for? Is it a Militarily inspector, or the gunsmith that customized the rifle.
You never pay too much for something, you only buy it too early.

If you do an advanced search for Remington Model 1903 with the word "dye" in quotation marks, you will get a few topics about matching stock and handguard color, and then a direct link back to this thread.

So, no. It is not a military mark to my knowledge, and I have had several of these out of the stock.
