190/290 front sight

I recently finished a refirb on a 290 that I traded for. This little rifle came out great but the front (plastic) sight is broken at the magizine tube holder and I have not been able to glue it together and make it hold. Where might I find a replacement for this part? Very classy plinker.

Thanks Harley & ntman for hosting.
My nephew asked if I could fix his .22, you guessed it a 190. The WWW pointed straight to Harley

190/290 front sight

Salvo, thanks for the info on Numrich. The only front sight they list is the later steel sight that dovetails on the top of the barrel. I need the early style made from black plastic. It fits over the muzzle and has a lower part that the magizine tube fits in. My sight is cracked on one side of the hole that the tube fits in.

I picked up a 190 a few months ago and just shot it last weekend (it shot very well by the way).

When I went to clean it, the action disassembly was easy enough until I pulled the bolt back and out popped the spring - uh oh. Anyhow if possible could I get a few tips on how I should go about reseting the spring? I have already tried feeding the spring with the stopper set with a pair of pliers, but I can only go so far until it starts bending. I also have no idea how to remove the stock, because I really don't know how I should approach it. Any tips are welcome, and if the takedown manuel would answer my questions then I would really appreciate it.

Thank you.

<scorpio119@gmail.com>

EDIT: Thank you Harley for the manuel. If anyone knows what size of socket will work for the stock that would be very useful.

190 bolt spring reinstallation

Hi Joons
The manual says that the spring can be installed using needle nose pliers and patience. I could not make it work no matter how I tried. The spring fits into a hole in the rear of the reciever housing that is open to the stock. I removed the stock and fed the spring in from the rear and while holding the spring in with a finger or screwdriver slip the stock back in place and install the nut that secures it. Sounds like a difficult feat but it is not. Good luck. You are going to like the rifle by the way.

Maybe this is crazy but ...

I've been taking my kids to the range shooting 22, but my 5 year old is small for his age and can't put the butt of the rifle in his shoulder. His arms are too short and he could never reach the trigger. So he puts it under his arm and blazes away. He's having fun and I'm with him, but I wanted him to be able to hold the rifle more correctly.

So after talking about it with some of the guys at work, I bought an old Winchester model 190 cheap at a gunshow to cut down him. I bought a model 190 over 33 years ago with money from my paper route, so I know it's a great rifle.

So far I've cut about 6 inches off the stock and made a new butt plate. Fine, now he can put the butt in his shoulder and reach the trigger. But the rifle is too heavy for him to hold up.

So I'm thinking I'd like to go further. Minimum legal length for a rifle is 26 inches, so I can cut another 5 or 6 inches off the rifle and still be legal. Problem is I would need to cut those inches off the barrel.

No problem. I can do that, and make it all smooth and pretty. I can even re-blue it when the cutting and filing is done. But there's that darn permanently attached magazine hanger.

Does anyone have any experience removing and replacing that hanger? Is it silver soldered? Welded on? Pressed in? Shortening the tubular magazine will be a piece of cake after that.

Winchester 190

I would very much like a take down book or manual on the #190.

Are there any replacement part available for it? As in the "bolt opening" handle and a "insert" for the tubular magizine?

Winchester 190 Help

I have a 190 that belongs to a friend. He has had it for about 30 years. He is a novice. Doesn't even know how to clean it properly. But he is a good person so I want to help him.
The rifle misfires. The firing pin does not make a good hit on the rim most of the time.
It jambs and does not feed the next round.
The action is rough.
Like a fool I offered to take it apart and give it a good cleaning and lube to see if that would solve his problems.
I did not know what I was getting into. No owners manual or take down manual.
Would some one please be kind and send those documents to me so I have a chance of helping my friend.
Also, given the above problems does anyone with experience with this rifle have any other ideas?
Thank you.
