Default The Holy Grail of M1 Carbines....Irwin Pedersen

Here are some pictures of my IP just as I received it, I haven't changed any parts and I don't plan on changing any I believe in keeping them in the condition they are now . Now here's the part everyone is gonna go &^#$%^&*, I traded a guy a used Leupold 3x9 Vari-x II for it. This was done back in 1978 so........no big deal at that time.

Good looking IP, interesting that it has an Underwood stock that has also been through an Underwood rebuild as indicated by the "U" on the left side. Wonder if the guy you got the carbine from put that stock and adjustable rear sight on it.

They are the ones every one are looking for , and there a lot of them still out there . A old friend of mine had 3 in his collection , but only had one in a ser.# in the first 3000 that were ready for shipment when they lost their contract . He also had one in the 3,200,000 range . Mine is # 1,777,565 . 1,1975 later than the starting ser.# . ??? I was told that after S'G' took over production , they didn't scrap the receivers that were already stamped IP , but re-heat treated and snuck those IP's in with their S'G' rifles . Still don't understand why the ser.# jumped around ? Anyone have a idea how many IP Carbines were shipped with the S'G' rifles ? The book says S'G' delivered 223,620 total rifles . BTW , Nice looking Rifle . Bob

I looked at them early enough to see the pics too. Nice IP and an interesting Marlin stock too as it has the word Marlin spelled out in the slingwell. I had a stock just like it, even had the later style UEF cartouche on like yours. A good indicator of when UEF was still using a few I-cut stocks later in production.

Bob, I have read before that IP started stamping receivers in their second block to show ordnance they were making progress...sounds plausible, it just didn't work if true.

deldriver , Now I can believe that . Pedersen was a smart guy . He most likely looked back at his conversion of the 03 to semi and didn't want to loose another G.I. contract . Bob .

One number I have heard bounced around for the total number of carbines with Irwin Pedersen stamped on the receiver is about 35,000 including both those in the 1.7 and 3.2 million serial blocks.
