One warning that I didn't notice being covered so far - be careful what solvents you use cleaning your 'new' Winchester. This design has a plastic 'feed throat' at the junction of the magazine and the receiver, and some chemicals can be hard on the plastic. Take a look at , and note part numbers 42102 and 40102 in the drawing to see what I mean. Some people use chlorinated brake cleaner on guns, for example - that's one product you should not use on this one. There may be other solvents that will cause trouble, be sure any cleaning/lube you use is plastic safe. And last time I looked, modern replacement feed throats were available if needed.

Other than that relatively minor caution, you have a really good gun there, and got a really good deal on it IMHO - enjoy it!

Mindset - Skillset - Toolset. In that order!

Attitude and skill will get you through times of no gear, better than gear will get you through times of no attitude and no skill.
