DescriptionFormed by the Irwin family, furniture makers from Michigan and John Pederson, inventor of the Pederson Device, Irwin-Pederson produced approximately 150,000 M1 carbines before the Ordnance Department canceled their contract, making the Irwin-Pederson the most scarce of the M1 Carbines. Blade front and two leaf rear sights, with an Underwood "3-43" dated barrel, Type I band, flat bolt, "IP-W" push button safety, milled guard and "IP-W" magazine catch. High wood stock, with a 2-rivet hand guard, "RMC" in the sling cutout, green canvas sling and checkered buttplate.

ConditionVery good, with traces of the weathered parkerized finish, showing wear along the edges, the start of a brown patina on the barrel, and gray on the receiver. "G" and "H" have been scratched into the side of the otherwise very good stock, with mild pressure dents and scratches. Mechanically excellent. Irwin Pedersen M1 Carbines are much sought after by collectors and are seldom encountered in any condition.

SHIPPING CHARGES. All shipping charges must be paid by the successful bidder prior to delivery of the firearm. If Rock Island Auction (RIAC) is asked to ship the purchased lots, there will be a separate charge for such shipping. Shipping charges will be based upon what it costs RIAC to ship the purchased lots to the purchaser. All items must have shipping insurance; this insurance is mandatory. RIAC will not charge any labor charges for shipping. RIAC is not liable for any acts of omissions in packaging or shipping. Purchased lots handled by outside carriers or packers, including those RIAC may have recommended, may carry their own insurance and any claims for losses or damages should be addressed directly to the outside carriers or packers. RIAC will arrange for packing and shipping at RIAC’s earliest possible convenience. RIAC will attempt to ship as soon as possible; however, due to RIAC’s high volume of absentee bids, shipping can take up to two weeks after full payment is received. In the case of crating or any exceptional packaging, the purchaser will be charged RIAC’s cost from outside agents. Purchaser pays shipping, packing materials, and insurance charges. The shipping of any purchased items outside of the United States is hereby classified as “foreign export”. All foreign export is the sole responsibility of the purchaser.
