Original Irwin Pedersen M1 Semi-Automatic Carbine

Carbine
Original Irwin Pedersen M1 Semi-Automatic Carbine, #1778753, .30 Carb. cal., 17.75” Underwood barrel dated 2-43, parkerized finish, IR-IP stock, with unmarked buttplate.  No magazine.  Accompanied with an original early khaki sling and oiler, both of which show use consistent with the carbine.  Condition is near excellent showing possible military use and may have been brought back by a GI after WWII.  The dark parkerization on the metal parts has a nice sheen and appears to be original, and the condition of the metal parts is overall consistent.  The color of the barrel is lighter than the receiver in protected areas, as it should be.  The IP bolt appears to be parkerized rather than blued, but is the same color, sheen and condition as the receiver.  All of the marked metal parts are properly identified for this Irwin Pedersen carbine, except the buttplate which is unmarked.  The buttplate fits the stock perfectly, has some rust, and the checkering is similar to a PM-IP marked buttplate.  All marked parts are IP; there are no S'G' parts.  The receiver has two index marks to the right of the RP rear sight, but the receiver shows no evidence of staking.  The front sight is marked "4" on the left side, which is correct.  The IR-IP stock and markings appear to be original.  The forward end of the stock has the impressions of a Type 1 barrel band only; the handguard is marked "IR-IP".    An Irwin Pedersen M1 Carbine in honest condition is difficult to find, and this appears to be a good one.  This M1 is from an estate, not a collection.  Est.:  $4,000-$6,000.  (C&R)
