Indeed- betcha a box of 30-06 shells that 90% of the bidders didn't know a Hoffman from a Huffman. RWTF

Very nice!! Thanks for Sharing. Get the correct Lyman 48 on there and it will look even better. Those early Hoffmans are hard to find.

Was lucky enough to get one of PhysDoc's reproduction blank slides really makes the gun look complete!

Very fine rifle! The more of Hoffman I see the more I like!
I am currently working on a story about a 1925 vintage Ardmore magnum Mauser Hoffman. The story will be in Sports Afield in a couple of months.

This is the first Hoffman rifle I've had on the workbench to "racoon" and I must say, I am really impressed with the quality and sophistication of the work. It also has the "Hoffman" marked sight with safety. The inletting is extremely well done as are the metal and wood finishes, balance and the all around detailing.

Hoffman was selling their bolt peep sights for $25 in 1923! A lot of money at the time!
