Dunno what to suggest, other than to keep hitting gunbroker or gunsamerica, and have your FFL check his distributors.
You need one, though: it is damn near a perfect rook rifle as-is, but it will quickly become a project rifle because it can easily become the perfect rook rifle if you are even mildly adept with tools.
Ditch the rear open sight for the Williams Guide receiver sight made for the T/C Contender (perfect fit), chop the barrel to about 17" and recrown, install a barrel band type front sight of correct height, recontour and slim the stock and forend, replace the forend screw/sling swivel with a simple flush-head screw, put a barrel-band sling swivel on it, and replace the thick vented recoil pad with a 1/2" solid Pachmayr pad, and you have a perfect English-style rook rifle for "walkin' around" that will take anything from squirrels to whitetail deer.
The wood is a bit cross-grained and simply will not stain up as anything other than boring (no figure at all), but it's a small price to pay. Eventually I may try to find a nice aftermarket stock and forend for mine, but I haven't even finished its transformation yet.
The Rossi action is significantly smaller than the similar NEF, and the hammer has a much better contour. If you're wanting a rook rifle, I'd hold out for the Rossi, rather than getting the NEF.
