Winchester 1890

Postby quackquack_boom91 » Thu Apr 14, 2011 7:10 pm

I have a Winchester 1890 First Model, It is missing a trigger and rear sight, does anyone know where I can get ahold of these parts? Also, does anyone know how much these are worth, I have seen many prices, It is in rough shape and I am looking to restore it myself, any tips? I will post a picture later on

Try Doug Turnbull Restoration. He is the pinnacle of everything Winchester.

yeah its the octogon barrel and shoots .22 shorts. I been looking at the prices these things go for when restored and its crazy. My grandparents had it given to them by someone they knew and it had the trigger gone since they had it. I took it apart and damn was this thing used...had years and years of gun powder and gunk in the barrel...cleaned it out quite a bit so far
