Just a thought.
You might consider watching Track of the Wolf's web site. Occasionally they sell used T/Cs and Lyman rifles reasonably priced. They also post pictures of those used rifles they have up for sale on their site. Or you can buy a new Lyman rifle there as well at competitive prices.
You can be assured a used rifle for-sale at Track gets a pretty good look-over first before being advertized and photographed.
Heartland of gun country. Fishing too.
