Have you tried removing the butt disc to see if there are markings on the other side?

Very nicely preserved rifles indeed.
I had a M13 with Canadian stamps a few years ago, and currently have a custom (non-original wood and barrel, and altered lever) M12 TD with Canadian stamps. I got it cheap as a barreled action on an auction site and it's a very good shooter.

Both sides of the disc are blank. For its age the rifle is in almost perfect condition with all of its case coloring.
Since it has very few handling marks I always wondered if maybe it had never been issued. Or maybe kept by someone that never used it.

I too suspect that it was never issued. Lucky find. Nice collector piece, and probably a very accurate shooter as most of them are.
