You're welcome. I have numerous rifles in deer and elk calibers from 6mm/243 up to 35 Whelen. I still love that old Thirty-thirty. But my younger brother isn't going to let it go for love or money. My dad bought it in 1951, the year I was born. I hunted jackrabbits on the farm with it sometimes while I was growing up. Give him a MEMORY. Granddad bought me what I wanted. He doesn't need a whiz-bang, just a rifle he wants bought by someone he really loves. Just had another thought. Open sights don't give 12 year olds scope bite.
