Canadian combat infantry badge

Here is a very unusual badge that was on ebay, is it a fantasy made up badge, or did the CF actually consider this at one time. The seller stated that it was a proposed Canadian combat infantry badge, based on the American CIB.

Enfield badge
Interesting it has a #4 enfield on it but I would expect to see maple leafs? Does not look military to me, I call BS.... but would love to be wrong. I would guess it originated from a shooting organization.

I agree, where are the maple leaves, or even a beaver, lol.

Looks similar to the Cadet LGen C.H. Belzile Trophy Rifle Pin.

Not my area off collecting. Is it usual to have “made in Canada” continuously stamped on the rear of military badge or is this a commercial stamp?

I have never seen that type of stamping before on a military badge, sometimes its the maker and a single "Canada" on more modern badges, most modern badges don't have any maker marks.

Makers Marks - Insigna

Actually much of the CF era metal insignia does contain both a makers mark and year of manufacture. Here are a few examples.
