Bob, the mark on your stock is like others I have seen. It looks like the pattern of a large headstock for a wood lathe with the outside grippers made to dig into the wood and the center pin to index the wood to be turned. In any case it is very large indicating it would be for large turnings. How the mark got on the gun is hard to imagine, but clearly for identification.
