I just bought a Irwin Pederson and the barrel is a underwood 8-44 how could this be? shouldn't it have an earlier barrel?

After the carbine contacts were all canceled except for Winchester and Inland,Underwood was given a contract to make new replacement barrels. They did this into the fall of 1944

Is this barrel hurting the rifles value?

If your carbine has the adjustable rear sight and the type 3 barrel band with the bayonet lug then no as your carbine is a rebuilt like most of them are and the replacement barrel will not hurt the value of it. But the value is quite a bit less then one that is original and not rebuilt which is very had to find.

I'd like to find all the correct parts and switch them back is that not a good idea?

It would be VERY expensive and when finshed wouldn't be worth the sum of the parts. But having said that, if you want to, go ahead. Many of us have done the same thing for other carbines, because we wanted to.
