just signed up to this forum, actually found it searching for info on my Mod 255. Anyway, does anyone know where to find or get owners manuals that are no longer offered from the manufactuer? I have tried to contact Winchester and they couldnt help, I tried the library like SteveK mentioned and no luck there either. I saw the YouTube video ckirby posted and that was cool but not that informational. I just bought the gun at a local auction and got a good deal on it judging by the prices I have seen listed on Gunbroker and USAguns, but pretty much I think I bought a really nice mantel piece. "It dont go bang.", as my beloved granfather so gracefully put it. I cant figure it out, i have taken it apart several times and still nothing. It cycles like its supposed to, but the trigger will not pull when the lever is closed. It almost feels like the safety is on, but its the same either way. If anyone knows anything, please help. Thanks.
Oh yeah, I also looked at Numrich Gun Parts to see if they had a exploded view, and they dont.
