7/17/18 - This is a beautifully restored but rare Irwin-Pedersen M1-carbine. Made in early 1943, this rifle has all original parts but the receiver/metal parts have had the finish restored. The stock is beautiful and original with excellent cartouche and S'G' mark. The sling cut is marked IR-IP with flaming bomb. The underside of the hand guard is IR-IP marked. Stock has early high wood and I-cut sling slot. IP marked receiver, safety and butt stock. RP marked rear site with 'S' on other side. Excellent original sling. S-O marked magazine. Bore shows some use but is nice and shiny overall.
