Winchester Model 190
 
Anyone know anything about the Win model 190 .22? My fil passed away last year and we have been going through his collection making sure nothing is getting rusty and what not and I found a 190 still in a box, could be slightly used but it's in real nice shape. Are these good auto 22s? Or prone to any feed problems?

Good hunting quality .22 auto. Not a real high dollar gun, not junk either. About $100- $175 for a very nice specimen. Great gun for a squirrel hunter, or a youngster that has mastered a single shot rifle.

They were an in-expensive 22 in their day. But they function well and usually have no issues. Like C3 says just an all around good shooter 22.

Came across one today kind of in rough shape, has a cracked stock, missing the magazine rod, but it only cost me $25

I have one that I inherited from my late father in law, I redid the stock on it and I shoot it Ever so often and quite a bit when I do, its a reliable, accurate gun, and I'm sure in its time its taken quite a few squirrels.

Here are some pictures of mine, and on the pistol grip part of the stock I burned in GLB, these are my late father in laws initials did this in memory of him, he passed when my wife was 6 and I never got to meet him, but even though this gun isn't worth millions of dollars it is priceless to my wife and I, she is pregnant with our first child now and eventually this will be handed down to them, it will never leave the family.

Yep, its a joy to shoot, points well good weight, hits what its aimed at, and mine shoots flawlessly, hardly ever jams or anything, pretty well made rifle for sure!
