You are the only real safety. Do everything right but point it at your foot ……….. .

You’ve got it, cant see how holding the cocking handle will ever fail to work. The MK1 did not have any nait-bear trap at all so naturally you couldn’t count on that and it seems most owners still have most figures.  MK1 also had the correct length stroke ( short is better in this design ) .  MANY serious TX shooters like to install the Macarri ” cocking shoe”.
Maintenance is maintenance , basically just wipe it down  until it needs a re-build. Depending on build – and maybe luck?- 2,000 to 20,000 before you discovery just how easy a TX is to work on.

 The real down side to buying a worked over used TX is they shoot so well you’ll now be late for Supper, out of ammo, have to live with “that was my fault” when “the rifle” misses.

Sounds like you scored.
