Interesting little article in American Rifleman October issue page 50

What you should have said is, "The US Military did not accept any IP Carbines as first made". The truth is, IP did make approx, 3, 500 which were delivered/to somebody ???, there is one in my safe to prove the point, (not mine, belongs to a friend). Pic attached. When IP Carbines were found by the military to be not up to the standard/quality required, Saginaw was asked to take over IPs production. The Carbines then produced are known as S'G's (not S.G.) and maybe a mixture of IP and S'G' parts. It's a long story !
Cheers mate, see if you can get those IMAS Carbine blokes contributing to this forum. I do understand you were quoting from another source. Mike.

I for one would love to hear more about the Irwin-Pedersen, I bet mike's collection must be lonely without him!
