I have the drawing for the rifle, if it is the one you are talking about. There is no side plate and the hammer is operated off the tang. very interesting design that Allin had. However, you are right, it would have scrapped all the stocks they had. I believe the drawings are in one of the unpublished books on Springfield that I never finished. As I recall, the gun is not in the second floor arms display area. I have been through it too many times to miss the odd-ball, unless it is totally miscataloged.
