The Winchester project: Compleat! 55-/+ pics!
 
Good day all,

Today, I'll be going through the process of how I "re-built" a Winchester rifle that I bought not too long ago. Yes, I know it's not paintball, but theres Walnut and Bronze involved.:D I would go into much detail as the pictures do most of the talking, but I will add some detail above some pictures. AND HERE WE GO!!!!!>........ (Skip to post #5 for compleated pictures)

Winchester Model 1906, Made in 1935. Missing the front barrel band, rear stock and hammer spring.

With a set a files, drill press and vice, I started on the barrel band......

And now onto the rear stock. Walnut is my wood of choice.

And now onto the Bronze butt plate!

Using the butt plate as a outline, I was able to move onto shaping the stock.

MarkT 12-07-2011 10:26 PM

Very nice. I like the pump handle.

y0da900 12-07-2011 10:27 PM

Very nice work. Your relatively limited selection of tools hasn't held you back any.

PAINTBALL GUY 3 12-07-2011 11:20 PM

Thank you, thank you! I'll be here all week!:p

Yoda - I agree with you on the tools. Howeven, I will say that a good set of files really helps out. That, and a steady hand.

D3adpool 12-07-2011 11:30 PM

Kudos dude.... very very nice!

bond commander bond 12-08-2011 01:10 AM

Nice work. I often turn wood in a metal lathe and also shape wood on a mill.
Never thought to use chisles to hollow out the foregrip (machinist think).

My friends also like the work:

anomoly40 12-08-2011 05:59 PM

The machinist in me is thinking of the complex radii required for that stock. The limited carpenter in me realizes files and rasps are the *poop*.

Stuffy 12-08-2011 06:53 PM

Great Resto! This is how **** should be done.

Wow! Says the guy who build one of the most coveted, pirate stocked markers on MCB! Thank you.:p

Mr.Smith 12-10-2011 12:33 AM

Holy ****.

That was amazing. We also own the exact same rifle. I thought it was a winchester 1890, because of the takedown screw on the left side. These things are awesome! I like how they used a bent piece of metal instead of a spring to put presdire on the hammer and trigger. :D

Whats yours chambered in? It could be worth up to a grand and a half.

Wowowow, are you saying you own a Winchester 1890 or a 1906?

I've owned a 1890 as well as a 1906 before this one and all I can say is Browning knew what he was doing. I mean, you cant buy this kinda qualty any more! I REEEALY miss the 1890, such a fine rifle.

Mine is chambered in .22 S.L & LR. The first couple years these were made, thay were only chambered in .22 Short.

Keys_JR 12-10-2011 12:42 AM

How long is a short, I've always wondered which .22 I have a scar under my eye from since I got it.

Mr.Smith 12-10-2011 12:49 AM

DUDE
I own an 1890, chambered in .22 short. It was like my dad's brother's cousin's uncle's grandfather's roommate's gun originally or somthing. I just replaced te pump and stock too, but i cheated. I ordered them custom.


Keys a short is about the length of a .22lr minus the bullet at the tip.

Heres a comparison; .22 short, .22lr (most common) and .22 WMR (magnum)

Lol ill get some photos tomorrow, all i have is ****ty photos from an ipod. I have to wake up in five hours for biathalon (Skiing and shooting if ya didnt know :gunsfiring: )

Basically the 1906 and 1890 are the same. Small differences.

Cool, thanks if I measure the scar it looks like they were shorts then.

@Smith: Nope, when I was at the shooting range, one of the casings bounced off the wall beside me and pushed itself into my cheek between it and the safety glasses. The ironic bit is that if it weren't for the safety goggles I wouldn't have gotten the bad burn, it would have just bounced off me. I will not however shoot without glasses, since it's quite possible it could have been about 1/4" higher and 1/4" to the left and that would have put it in my eye.

Also I agree with Ti, pics or it didn't happen!

First or all - Very cool! The Biathalon run is, next to Curling, my favorite olympic sport. Good for you man!


Second -

*GASP* I think not good sir! Wile the actions of both rifles were the same later on in production, the 1890 was much more elegant. The 1890 underwent several changes since it first entered the Winchester line in 1890. But throughout the 42 years it was made, a 24" Tapered octagon barrel, Walnut stocks and crescent buttplate was a standard. The first model was a solid frame where in two halfs of the action were pined together and the bolt did not show from the side of the action........

https://picturearchive.gunauction.com...d66246d619.jpg

....... later on, the takedown and new style bolt was made......

https://picturearchive.gunauction.com...028c1ce5b2.jpg

This was mine, once apon a time. Very sadly missed.........

Thanks.

Mr.Smith 12-10-2011 06:48 PM

Couldn't be bothered to go out all the way to the garage and take photos today. So for now ****ty pictures it is. Nothing but the best for you guys! :D
These are the old photos without the new wood furniture, ill get newer better pictures eventually.

The rifle! With octagonal barrel as mentioned by Ti, and chambered in .22 short. Also has the takedown screw.
https://img233.imageshack.us/img233/2396/img0106fz.jpg

Stripped to three main groups, front receiver, (barrel, body, pump) rear receiver, (trigger group and stock) and magazine.

https://img198.imageshack.us/img198/5742/img0119wa.jpg

Annnndddd with the bolt open. This is amazing how they did this. I love the gun. Cant wait to shoot it sometime.

https://img854.imageshack.us/img854/213/img0113fj.jpg

So thats the 1890! :clapping:

PAINTBALL GUY 3 12-10-2011 09:10 PM

Oh, how I love those Winchester .22's. And oh how I miss mine.:( The cool thing about being chambered in short is there are lots of different loads available from Winchester, CCI, Remington (<< dont tought this stuff), ect. Long, not so much.

Good looken rifle there Smith. Hows the bore?

Decent, but it could be better. The thing i i've dry fired it about 100 times, and just recently i learned that that really hurts the firing pin on rimfire rifles.
(oops :bang: ) Next time i take it apart ill take apart the bolt and make sure its still decently pointy :D

Where did you do your PAL exam?

Actuly, it's really cool how the firing pin was thought out. If you pump the bolt back, put a stright edge across the face of the bolt and push the firing pin/ button on the back of the bolt, you will see that the striker does not touch the stright edge! Therefore, the rim of the barrel is unharmed from a dry fire! And the firing pin is around 3/8" thick, so your going to have a hard time damageing it.

PAINTBALL GUY 3 01-02-2012 06:39 PM

YAY, the pic's are working again!

PAINTBALL GUY 3 05-20-2012 10:29 PM

You know, I sold this rifle awile ago and now I miss it. If only the rifle it's self was in better overall shape (action was a tiny bit sloppy), I would have kept her. Some of my best work right there..........:(
