The buttplate surely looks mated to the stock, and matching to the barrel.

If in 1941 the Soviets were beginning to conserve steel, where better on a Mosin Nagant than the rear slot escutcheons? But we usually do see this from a year or two later.

I have a Tikka 91/30 with escutcheons added to the rear slots and Russian half liners in the front. Stock is a Finn recycled one piece Soviet stock. Looks to me like the rear escutcheons were added by the Finns but hard to say for sure. Sweet [SA] M38 BTW! I have a late 41 with rough high wall receiver Finn M38 just like that.
