Winchester model 150
« on: November 24, 2013, 01:57:03 pm »
Hey guys, I have granddad's old Winchester model 150 (lever action twenty two) here, and I see that aside from some wear she is missing some parts.

I need part of the rear sight (no idea what it's called)

And the metal band that binds the foregrip.

Any idea where I could get these or if it would be worth it?

Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    Well, I can't tell what's missing from the rear sight.  The sight is there and the elevator is there.  According to the schematic (http://www.gunpartscorp.com/Manufacturers/Winchester-33573/Rifles-42602/150-40275.htm), that's all there is.  As far as the barrel band, Numrich is sold out, but when they had them, they were $17.55.  I don't know if they get new parts in, or if they just sell parts from older, disassembled parts guns, and when they're gone, they're gone.  But at least that shows you the official part name.

    Edit to add, you'll also need the Foreend Screw Escutcheon, part #46 on the diagram.  They have that one in stock (page 3) for $3.55.

    The rear sight elevator looks to be in backward. It should be slid down the rear sight channel, rather than hanging out the back.

    Thanks guys  :thumbup1. This old device had been sitting in the house untouched. That is, until we had a problematic squirrel this morning which my step dad tried to "fix". I know nothing of the firearm, but he told me something was missing from the sight. It very well may be fully intact  :shrug.

    Eta: the elevator you see is a homemade concoction by my stepfather, he is looking for a correct factory piece.

    Try local sources first.  There's a place called Lee's Gun Parts in Irving and another one called Downing's in Cleburne.  Don't know how close those are to you but sometimes an old shop like that has something kicking around that's just what you need.   Another place you might try is Jack First guns in south Dakota.    :shrug
