Complete breakdown of Winchester 06 22 rifle

I've recently acquired 2 Winchester model 06 22 pump rifles. They are serial numbers 681018 and 2126094. They were both ranch guns from the family ranch and were well used (and abused) over their lifetime. I want to completely breakdown and clean them, but because they are a couple of old cusses I don't want to screw them up by making a mistake. The have served their owners well and deserve to be cleaned up and displayed on the wall. So I'm hoping someone can provide me with complete breakdown info. Also, any info on the approximate date of manufacture would be nice to know.

They are serial numbers 681018 and 2126094.
Serial number 681018 was made in 1929. Serial numbers never approached 2 million, perhaps you have added a digit.

Breakdown is simple:
* Unscrew the large thumb screw and separate the two halves of the receiver.
* Clean everywhere you can reach, scrub the bore.
* Reassemble in reverse order.

I do not recommend you disassemble further.
Never try to educate someone who resists knowledge at all costs.
But what do I know?

Your absolutely right---I did add a digit to the serial number. The correct number is 216094. And I do have a degree of knowledge on working with guns so I would feel comfortable with the complete breakdown. I've dissembled and reassembled my Winchester Model 61 and Remington SpeedMaster Model 241. There appears to be a degree of similarity between the 06 and 61. I was just hoping to get additional info before tackling the breakdown. But I certainly agree that a novice should not attempt a complete breakdown.
