View Full Version : Winchester Model 190 takedown manual

April 22, 2006, 06:26 PM
Where can I get a takedown manual for the Winchester 190 rifle, 22 cal. I just got it from a relative and it is caked with carbon. I looks like it was never cleaned. I want to use it to teach my son to shoot.

I would greatly appreciate a copy of the 190 takedown manual as well. The humidity this year has really taken a toll and I'd like to clean mine up.
Thanks in advance.

I to would appreciate the takedown manual. Please send to me as well. Mine has sat in a case for a long-time and I want to clean it up + start using it this fall.

September 4, 2006, 03:42 AM
I would greatly appreciate it if someone could e-mail me instructions on how to take a 190 apart and put it back together again. I got the trigger housing, bolt and spring out but am too scared to go any further. My e-mail is [email protected] Also would like to hear from any former Recon Marines who served across the pond around 1966.

Sir: My daughter just dragged one of these home, thinking that Dear Old Dad knows everything and could turn the 12 pound trigger pull into a 3 pound match quality one. Hah.

Anyway, I do not have anything on this in my archives. If you could send something along I could at least take a stab at a cleanup and see what we are up against.

Thank you.

Hello Harley, May I get the take down instructions for the Winchester Model 190 too ? I would greatly appreciate it ! [email protected]

September 15, 2006, 05:29 PM
Hey Harley would you mind sending me a copy also

September 20, 2006, 05:59 PM
I, like so many other 190 owners, found this forum while looking information on disassembling my rifle. For those who may have missed the earlier thread, the manual is available online here:


Also, I did the same thing that jlyent mentioned on that other thread and lightened my trigger pull by bending the spring. It feels much better, although I haven't yet taken it out to test it.

One other thing-I've seen this rifle described as being able to fire shorts as well as the longs and long rifles that are mentioned on the barrel. Has anyone tried this? How does it do?

September 21, 2006, 08:59 PM
Thank You, Tsulio:)

October 29, 2006, 12:49 PM
Harley I hope you still can get this, the thread that I found was old but I was wondering if you would be able to email me the take down manual for the winchester model 190 .22 cal semiauto rifle. My father had bought it some twenty years ago from a relative and he did not have the owners manual. It has been sitting in the gun safe and is hardly ever used but we wanted to take it apart today and could not figure out how to remove the barrel from the forarm. If you can that would be hugely appreciated.

thanks, Nick

November 27, 2006, 06:09 PM
Well, I guess I am in trouble here. I am new to the forum but I am asking for some guidance. I have a Model 190 Winchester semi-auto .22. Shoots good but loads funny. I can load two rounds of long rifle in the tube and they will feed. If I load more it will jam with the first round. I am wondering if the problem is in the loading tube spring, or in the carrier. Any suggestions?

I would also like a copy of that dis assembly sheet for the Model 190 it they are available.

Thanks for taking the time to look.

Take down manual has been posted on the net for the Win 190. Check old posts.


December 6, 2006, 08:00 PM

Can't thank you enough for posting Wichester 190 takedown on the net.
I bought mine new in '72 when I was 16. This was always a sweet shooting rifle untill just a few years ago and I just put it away. Got it back out a few weeks ago and after a new recoil spring and a little work shoots just like new.
Now I'm ready to reblue the steel and refinish the stock. Thank you.

December 28, 2006, 09:13 AM
i also have a winchester 190 semi auto 22 that I am fixing up for a youngster. It has a loose barrel, and I can't figure out how to tighten it. So if you please, one more takedown manual would begreatly apprieciated.

March 31, 2008, 09:05 PM
For all of you whom have recieved Win 190. Congradulations. It is an excellent .22. I have owned mine for about 30 years. It has a 4x16-50 with adjustable objective scope. Will kill Starlings at 50 yards easy(did it Sunday) My boy is 15 and likes it better than his .17HMR. Take care of it and it will last a long time. Word of warning, dont use the rounds that have a lot of wax. If you do, you will learn how to clean it the hard way and very often.

April 2, 2008, 02:45 PM
Need a take down and parts manual for the Winchester Model 190. Tried the site under post 17 and all I get is a pop up asking for user name and password. If anyone has this manual please email it to me.

i'm searching for takedown instructions for a model 190. friend of mine gave it to me recently. seems to be in good shape. hasn't been fired in years. i wanna take it apart and clean it, but don't know where to start. i saw the old post on this and tried the swishercs link, but it took me to a computer company.
i just need to find out how to take this thing apart and get it back to doing what it was made for -- providing the makins for squirrel gravy!
can anybody help?

April 3, 2008, 08:16 PM
Just a suggestion. Someone should send that manual to Steve at http://stevespages.com/.

He likes to host gun manuals. Really good guy too.

April 5, 2008, 01:27 PM
I am a new member. I'm not even sure if I'm doing this right, but here goes. I was amazed when I found this site. I thought I would be the only person in the world looking to find out about the model 190. A dear old friend( 89 yrs. old) just found this old rifle and gave it to me knowing I'm just getting interested in guns. I shot it five times and it shot where I was pointing it!! It is gooky and rusty in spots but that did not affect it's shooting. I want to take it apart and clean it thoroughly. I've taken the stock off but nothing else. I do not know anything about it and I don't want to mess it up. What do I need to know next please?

April 15, 2008, 10:00 PM

Hey guys found this site searching for info on a model 190. This gun has been in my family for a long time. My great grandfather bought it many moons ago for my dad when he was a boy.

Unfortunately i left the gun in a friend of mines tool box in the back of his truck, and the same day i left it in there he got into a pretty bad roll over accident and the tool box was launched about 30 yards from where the truck ended up. My friend was fine fortunate enough but my gun has been banged up a bit. The but of the gun is split into 3 pieces right around where it meets the metal.

Im pretty gun illiterate, ive only put together a couple of sks's and pistols and i had help doing that. Im going to try and find a new stock for it, or try to piece back the old one, took 4 years of wood tech in highschool it looks like it can be glued back together and sanded down and refinished. But one of those takedown manuals would be greatly appreciated.

Send one to [email protected] would be greatly appreciated.

April 26, 2008, 09:14 PM
Harley, I don't know anything about my model 190 winchester and I need to clean it up before i can even think about shooting it can you send me a breakdown so I can clean it........Please and Thanks Email: [email protected]

November 3, 2008, 09:32 AM
In doing some web searching I found a neat web site that sold me a reproduction copy of the original user manual that came with the Winchester 190. I also found a manual for my Winchester 62A. The site has over 700 manuals and hang tags - a large selection or manuals at prices around $5.00 to $10.00. the Website is:

www.rediscovered-shooting-treasures.com either URL will work.

Hope that helps someone save a few hours or research

Same as others here, I just aquired this 190 from my father's collection. He hasn't shot it in over twenty years. Requiring a major clean & lube job. I too would like a copy of the take down manual. I really don't understand why winchester doesn't have this? Seems like there are MANY of these rifles getting a new life. Thanks! [email protected]
