Thanks Steven! It has been a lot of fun finding all this info and I'm looking forward to seeing this rifle come back to life. It will be in the Hoffman style, in 375 H&H, with a quarter rib.

I let one of those go a few years back when times were tight. Mine was in slightly better condition, but with ivory grips~~
Very classy revolvers, especially with the checkered Colt Grips!
