M1 Carbine, Irwin Pedersen

This company was a marriage of the Irwin Brothers Furniture Company, and the gunsmith talents of the famous John Pedersen (of Pedersen Device and Garand competition fame).  Unfortunately, the Grand Rapids, Michigan based pairing struggled with quality and quantity problems from the start.  As a result, Irwin Pedersen marked carbines are rare.  To pick up the slack, the Saginaw Steering Gear division of General Motors (which also had a carbine contract at its plant in Saginaw Michigan), took over fulfillment of the Irwin Pedersen contract from their Grand Rapids plant.  The subsequent production was marked S'G' (read S prime G prime).  These carbines are found in the Irwin Pedersen serial number block, with nearly any combination of either Irwin Pedersen or S'G' marked parts.

This first piece has all Irwin Pedersen marked parts and receiver.  It is in excellent original condition, with all original sling, oiler, stock mag pouch, 3 15 round mags, and canvas case.
