    I have neither, but just wonder if you mean the rifle or pistol.

    My brother has one that has not been shot in several years, just sits in the gun cabinate. I'll see if he wants to get rid of it. <>< del

    I saw two .54 caliber T/C Scouts sitting side by side a few weeks ago at the OGCA show. One had walnut furniture the other had plastic, both were $200 and both looked brand new. I walked away with the walnut Scout. I'm hoping to get it out to the range once the weather breaks.

    I have seen a few Scouts on GunBroker.

    Prices of the tradional muzzleloaders are very low here, everyone wants the new inlines, and though the scout is an inline, it cannot easily be converted to use 209 primers without a lot of machining to the reciever, breechplug, and hammer, and since pellets do not ignite reliably with just #11 caps it's a FF BP only carbine.

    I was looking for a T/C hawken or Lyman GPR when I saw the Scouts, and I always like the lever action styling of the Scout. Since I was fully prepared to carry loose powder and deal with a traditional rifle the so-called drawbacks of the scout did not phase me.

    I'm not sure what scope mount it is, but as soon as I work up a loading for it the scope is going away and I plan on using open sights. To me scopes just add bulk and add aqusition time to a hunting carbine. It would be such a waste not to use the beautiful buckhorn sights that came on the Scout.
