    I am looking for ANY Written after market repair instructions, notes, or?? by Winchester or anyone on the Mod. 1890 or 1906. Copies or Originals. I have been collecting these for many years. Have many more than i need(no such thing) There has been Mods on these, and one was on the 1890, the inside of the receiver for the bolt lock, to keep it from opening when cocked. This is where the fireing pin locks into the receiver to keep the bolt from lifting up. The slot would wear and you could work the action with hammer cocked. This was repaired by milling out a small section on each side and riviting in the new part. Most are found on the 2nd. Model. Many mistake the revits or holes(missing rivets) as scope mounts. I have both the mod 1890 and 1906(2nd. mod) with this repair and from many differant locations and they are the same. This is why i beleave it to be a Factory Recomended repair. Should be something ? Somewhere? I have almost 100 of the 1890/1906s plus parts. Have all the books,old and new, but still looking for the factory repair/updates??? Thanks to all and KEEP LOOKING.

    folks i've run into a sight on this little gun that I have never seen before and neither have any of my friends. Maybe some body out there has seen it and tell me what I have. The tang part is tall, no need to take off the rear sight on the gun, elevation only on the rear. Front sight is round with a little sight in the middle and wind adjust is guess in from the wide base on the font site.
    I don't know how to include a picture so if somebody would give me instructions I will send a couple.

    Picked up 1890 at a yard sale, thought maybe for parts. Turns out it shoots good and cycles good. Problem is the guy decided to make it look a little better with his new Black and decker and 80 grit on the butt stock. As you might guess the pride is a little low, about a 1/16. Is there any way you guys know I could build it up a little without looking like it has been? Can anybody tell me is a lymnan 2 will fit the 1890 with new holes?

    Just bought one and new it had some problems first off would not chamber a round so I took it apart found a empty shell inside the reciever that problem is solved. The real problem is I can not get the magazine tube to go over more than 2 shells. When I empty the shells out you can see where the tube is just cutting into the end of the bullets. Not sure what the problem is. Any ideas?
