Re: need some help
I have a Sears Mod. 3T, which as far as I know is just a rebranded Winchester 190. I just finished taking it completely apart. And I mean completely. I HOPE you don't have to go there. The forend is more than a bit of a pain. The magazine tube runs through a hole bored in the forend. The only way to remove the forend is to remove the magazine tube, or the entire barrel and tube. I needed to remove the barrel anyway, so that's the route I took. If I just needed to get the forend off to refinish it, I'd see if I could remove the pin that secures the front end of the mag tube and pull it out forward. It would sure be easier! If you want or need to go the barrel route, let me know and I'll tell you how.
I'll also see if I can come up with the link to the instructions that I found and used...

Mack: Shame what this town's come to.
Charley Waite: You could do something about it.
Mack: What? We're freighters. Ralph here's a shopkeeper.
Charley Waite: You're men, ain't you?
Mack: I didn't raise my boys just to see 'em killed.
Charley Waite: Well you may not know this, but there's things that gnaw at a man worse than dying.
