It would be nice to have a clear profile photo of the rifle to compare stock type/color of wood.

import mark is terribly faded,  or very lightly stamped, 

looks more like a NJ at the end, 

wondering if it was a Navy Arms import?

This is slightly clearer, and the close ups of the action area have good shots of the adjacent wood. 
I am pretty sure that that mark on the charger bridge base is J J NY NY, which is J Jovino, in which case the problem is solved.I also noted that the screws holding the nose cap on have black painted heads, while everything else is phosphated. Another red flag.
