Default Jumped on a Winchester lever earlier today...

picked up a Winchester 250 this afternoon...not a whole lot on the 'net about 'em...
anyone else got one?

I've got a schematic, but wouldn't mind seeing a copy of a manual

Hey Shrek,Nice grab.
I've had a 255 (22WMR)for many years.They are pretty good little rifles.
If you want to disassemble the trigger assembly for cleaning,there's a good video on youtube that will show you how to do it.

Thanks
I need to find a 255 & a Marlin 57M also...someday

After I get it cleaned & optimized, the 250 & my Marlin 56 are going to the range for a Gun-Off
War of the Modern Lever-actions, as it were!

I must say that at first glance, the trigger SUX...ton of creep, then a heavy pull at the end...yukko.
Other than that, its dirty as heck and will receive a field-strip & total cleaning in a few days (on my day off)...
I'm hoping that the cleaning will help the trigger a bit, along with making it easier to work the action & load it...
its just chock-full of crud...

This thing is Disgustingly dirty...even the mag tube is full of some sort of brown paste-like goo...

I had a 255 many years ago; wish I still had it, but it was stolen from my brother's home. Great shooting and handling rifle in 22 mag.

Default Pic time!

Before cleaning...


Before cleaning closeup...


After cleaning...


Spent about 2 hours on the bolt & action housing alone so far...
next comes the cleanup of the lever assembly & action...I know, it looks all shiny, but that's just after ONE attack with a toothbrush & Hoppes...
and it ain't really as shiny as the flash made it out...


pics don't do the gunk justice...I'll be spending a day or two taking it apart & polishing all mating surfaces & cleaning it properly.
