What makes I-cut M1 carbine stocks so rare and expensive?
And what is "high wood" and "low wood?"

I-cut stocks are the earliest variant. Irwin Pederson only manufacturered a few thousand carbine parts sets. It's still debated if they actually produced any whole carbines that passed inspection. Pedersons parts stock was transferred to Saginaw Gear for completion. That what this stock is... an early Pederson stock that was put on a complete carbine at Saginaw Gear.


High wood - Low wood has to do with the amount of wood in front of the slide. High wood stocks were used in the first couple years of production. Click here for some pictures. The first 3 are low wood. The rest are high wood.

So, Irwin Pederson was the only manufacturer to make I-cut stocks?
Thanks for the info!
