Link To Manual, and Thread Summary

First, a BIG thank you to Harley Nolden. His generous sharing of information inspired me to register just to post the requested info again, and a summary of the posts on this thread that give assembly/repair hints. I have no affiliation.

Collection/Summary of posts in this thread for assembly/repair hints I found most valuable:

No need to take the barrel off to REALLY clean the chamber. do what we do with 10/22's and my T/C Classic. Go get a 22 CENTERFIRE bore brush, bass bristles for sure an brass core if you can. Use and empty 22 lr case to judge howdeep the chamber is. add just a touch more in length. Now bend the brush about 90* that far back from the tip of the brush. Now you can stick that front part into the chamber tru the ejection port and the back, theaded part can be rocked back and forth (not in and out, but you can do that too) and you will clean the lead ring that builds in front of the chamber. This works great for cleaning the chamber and you can do it right at the range whenever you need to. Just throw it in your range kit.

After scrubbing the chamber this way follow up by running a patch or 4 thru it. Thats it. WAY easier tha taking things apart.

I recently worked on one of these interesting little guns. It is a LITTLE strange in design but I liked it.
I just finished rebuilding a model 190 Winchester after Mr. Nolan sent me the take down instructions.
I, like a lot of others, had a bunch of trouble in re-inserting the bolt and the trigger housing properly, as the cartridge would not enter the chamber, and after about ten or twelve tries, if finally dawned on me that the problem was the long bolt that mounts the stock after inserting the bolt spring into the channel, was pushing the metal clip that rests under the bolt, out to where the extractor would not work, as the bolt could not come back far enough.

If anyone is taking that model apart, it is a pain to try to get back together unless you figure it out, and you can only figure it out by looking straight down at the mounting bolt, and noticing the gap between the clip and the back of the housing.
i bent the trigger spring on my 190 and it lightened to 3.5 lbs. on the stock bolt problem, if you install the stud first you can position the metal clip (recoil plate is what winchester calls it) in the proper spot. the instructions claim stock removal is not recomended in normal disassembly, however i find the easy way to install th bolt spring & guide is with the stock off. you insert bolt spring& guide from rear, compess spring, hold in place with metal ruler & slide stock on.
End of Summary
About Me:
My father got me my first gun, a BB gun at 4-years-old. Had to have him cock it for me, for the first 3 years. Had to prop it in the fork of a small dogwood to shoot it for the first year or so.

My favorite uncle bought this rifle for me, as my first firearm when I was a boy. I cherish it, as it is the only firearm I have ever owned. I needed info for it, including how to replace the little sliding rear site part that fell out. This thread has been a blessing to me.

Can anyone tell me how to help keep the little sliding rear site from falling out from under the spring slot?
