View Full Version : win 190

January 31, 2010, 06:59 PM
hi, second post. i bought a winchester 190 a few days ago and saw on cabelas and a few other sits a sling mount made by "uncle mikes" that attaches to the tube. if i put the stud all the way to the front part of the forend, could i mount a bipod and have it stable? or is there an alternative that doesnt need to be drilled?

Why in the world you you ever want a bipod on that rifle?

hey, i had a 190 go full auto--dumped a tube full of 22lr in the blink of an eye--scared the crap out of me--:confused:

because we sometimes shoot int places where you got to walk in, and i dont want to bring a bench or anything. but why not a portable rest= bipod. and why not? every man has his reasons. ;)

Mounting a bipod on that gun (I've got a 190 by the way) is kind of like putting a spoiler on a pickup truck. Yea, it might fit but it doesn't do any good for either the spoiler or the truck.

A Win 190 is a decent little .22 auto but it is definately no benchrest gun. Learn to use a good set of shooting sticks and you'll be much better off.

true. yea, i can see what your saying. that way i can use the sticks for both my rifles. btw, what ammo does your 190 prefer, i bought some blazer when i picked it up. heres a link to my video of me and a friend shooting it. im second. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKEAptomRTg

Mine will shoot almost anything I throw at it, but I don't use Remington (too dirty) and Winchester Super-X (too inconsistent and too many fail-to-fire). My ammo of choice is the Federal bulk stuff. Fortunately, it is also one of the cheaper selections available.

For shooting sticks, I use the collapsable bipod one from Cabelas. It has thumb locks like a camera tripod does. However, next time I have to buy one I'm going to look seriously at the new Primos Trigger Stick bipod. That looks like it is a little easier to adjust quickly.

I saw your video. I had almost forgotten how "white" the winters are in Utah. I spent 4 of them there and was glad to get away.

To clean your 190, DON'T try and take it apart. It is a bear to get apart and even worse to get back together. I found that the best way to clean the action is to lock the bolt open and spray the crap out of the inside with Breakfree Powder Blast. Spray enough that the gunk runs out of the open bolt and the barrel. Use a compressed air hose to blow it dry, then use a tiny bit of lubricant like CLP or other good light oil. I also use compressed air on that too. It helps to spread the lubricant around on the internals.

Sorry, I thought you lived in Utah. MN is REALLY cold too. Too cold for my thin Floridia blood.

lol, my grandma lives in valrico,fl. i want to stay here or live in mt,co,id,washington state,or, or nm. thinkng about being a LEO or welder. i made a spinner target in welding class, gonna make another. wouldn't mind doing it for a profession. it's in the thirthies 2day. 26 on sat they say as of wed. wanna shoot my blr in .30-06 this spring and my 1100 .410 and win 1200 12ga too. do you have any experience with the stevens 200 or mossberg atr?

February 4, 2010, 06:16 PM
This question wasn't directed to me.... but thought I would jump in anyway... :D

the mossberg ATR is largely considered a heaping pile of defecation

The stevens I have read good things about here and there...

-1 on the Mossberg ATR (or any of the Mossberg centerfire rifles made today). +1 on the Stevens 200. It is the same as the old Savage 110 but with a composite stock. I think it is butt ugly but they are great shooting rifles.

You might also consider the Marlin XL7... I dont' have a lot of experience with mine, but it is an excellent shooter with a great trigger and in the same price range

February 4, 2010, 08:41 PM
i was thinking of the marlin but in .243.

Maybe next time I need to take it apart, I'll fly up there and let you do it.

Actually, I found that my Powderblast procedure eliminated the need to disassemble it. I'm probably going to sell it. I've got a bolt-action .22 that will shoot the 'nads off a gnat and I really don't need a 2nd .22.

what kind of bolt? and keep it, they are old and pass it down........to me ;) lol

here's the new scope. it's a 4x32.
