Default Winchester Model 190

I picked up one of these rifles awhile back, like new and never shot. I took it out yesterday and was really impressed with the rifle. It was highly accurate and a lot of fun to shoot. I understand they quit making these rifles back in '77. I've always been a Marlin 60 guy but I'd put this rifle right up there with the Marlin. Was wondering if anyone else has one of these rifles and what their thoughts are on it? Also was needing a bit of knowledge on how to field strip and clean the gun.

The 190 is ok. Fun little inexpensive shooter. Made when some gun makers were trying to make less expensive guns. They used alot of cast aluminum and plastic. You will find over time the forend and butt stock may start to loosen up. There are good little shooters but not made to last the test of time. Compared to a Marlin, they are just ok. I have one but prefer to shoot my Marlins. Have fun with it....

The 190 was the economy version of the 290. This is the detailed take down and reassembly instructions. Would not advise going further than removal of the bolt, and use spray Gunscrubber to clean parts like trigger group while it is still assembled.

Spud, I don't find any aluminum or plastic on this gun, wood stock and steel, unless you're talking about the internal parts?

Like Hiwall stated, the receiver is aluminum and the way the forend and butt stock are screwed into it they become loose over time. I have worked on a few and almost every one was loose. I have had to retap one and use a larger screw to hold it and another I ended up using an epoxy to lock the screw in place. Just the nature of the beast with that firearm. As long as they are working properly they are still fun shooters.

That's interesting, thanks guys. I probably won't shoot it all that often, my goto 22 is my old Marlin. But it is an extremely accurate gun and like you said, a lot of fun to shoot.

I love mine, it is accurate and flawless, it belonged to my wife's father, he died when she was six and I never got to meet him, this gun is priceless to my wife and I, I did refinish the stock on it, and I burned his initials in it as a memorial to him.

That's sweet, I really like the way mine shoots too. It was my Dad's by the way. He passed away last November and I got that gun along with a few others. I'll never get rid of any of them, just pass them down.

I'm sorry for your loss, I also inherited a few more of his guns, none of which are collectors items, they are all shooters and are all priceless to us, they will be going nowhere except to our kids someday!
