FIRST welcome to the best forum for rimfires, enjoy the insanity that will follow.

As far as you're uncle's rifle, I would suggest just getting anything that is broken or warn repaired. Your son has bonded with your uncle, a little faded blue, or scratches and dings are a part of the rifles character, imparted by your uncle, no reason to disturb that, cherish it.
I have my grandfather's Winchester model 1890, short only pump. There is no blue left, just brown, and the stock finish is starting to rub through in spots, the barrel is a sewer pipe from the old black powder rounds. The ONLY thing I would consider doing would be getting the barrel relined. I want the rifle shootable but I don't want to change the character of the rifle that was given to me by fine old man and inspiration.
