Q: I have a Winchester Model 190 semi-automatic chambered for .22 Long Rifle with a stamped serial number of: B1452XXX. I cannot find any information about this rifle and am looking for a manual.
A:The Winchester Model 190 semi-automatic .22 rimfire rifle was manufactured from 1967 to 1980. It was basically a variant of the Model 290, which first appeared in 1965, but did not have the 290’s select Monte Carlo stock. Model 190s came in both rifle and carbine configurations. Including the 290, some 2,171,263 were made. I suggest you try contacting Cornell Publications, LLC. (Dept. AR), P.O. Box 214, Brighton MI 48116; (810) 225-3075 in your quest for a manual. An original is illustrated here.
