How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?

We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :

30-30 Winchester, or . 30 WCF (Winchester Centerfire), is the cartridge that has become synonymous with the Model 1894. Starting in 1899, the Model 1894 was also chambered in . 32 Winchester Special.
30-30 was among the first cartridges utilizing smokeless gunpowder. It was introduced by Winchester in 1895 in its Model 94 lever action rifle which was the product of famed gun designer John Browning. Shooting a 160-grain jacketed bullet at almost 2,000 feet per second, it was a speed demon at the time.
What year is a Model 94 Winchester 30-30? If it says 30WCF on the barrel it was made before 1942 (WWII). If it days 30-30 on the barrel it was made after WWII. Winchester can tell you the production date if you provide them the serial number.
30-30 is better than ever. The 160-grain, flex-tipped projectile leaves the muzzle at about 2,400 fps, yielding 2,046 ft-lbs of muzzle energy. Velocity remains high—2,150 fps at 100 yards, 1,916 fps at 200 yards, and 1,619 fps at 300 yards—and so does the energy downrange.
30/30 is considered a 150-yard deer cartridge, the flat-nose and round-nose bullets share much of the blame.
History. Most individual manufacturers habitually put serial numbers on the weapons they produce. Such numbers can be used to ascertain the name of the manufacture, place and date of manufacture. At least for some manufacturers, a serial number can unlock myriad details about the weapon.
30-30`s popularity among deer hunters is its light recoil. Average recoil from a typical 150-grain load at 2,390 feet per second (730 m/s) in a 7.5 lb (3.4 kg) rifle is 10.6 foot-pounds (14.4 J) of felt recoil at the shooter`s shoulder, about half that of a comparable rifle chambered for the .
There were only 132 One of One Thousand rifles produced in the Winchester 1873 Model, and a scant eight of the Model 1873 One of One Hundreds– only six of which are known today.
Winchester Model 70

The Model 70 is without a doubt one of the most famous bolt-action rifles in history having developed a loyal following among American sportsmen during the peak of the rifle`s production.

The model name and serial number can be found in several locations, depending on the product: A label on the back or bottom of the device. The original packaging and printed instruction manual inside it. The system menu in products with a user interface (e.g. TVs or cameras)
A model number refers to all of a single product. For example, all 32GB SanDisk Extreme SD cards of the same generation have the same model number. A serial number references a single, specific product. So, there can be hundreds or even thousands of the same model number made.
In your search bar, type the following: cmd. At the command prompt, type the following: wmic bios get serialnumber. Press Enter. You`ll see your serial number.
30-30 offers more power with certain loads, better long-range performance, and soft recoil. Cartridges are (usually) widely available and don`t cost more than the . 350 Legend.
The increased case capacity and case length allows the 30-30 to fire heavier bullets than the 7.62×39. The 30-30 can fire bullet weights ranging from 110 gr up to 170 gr with 150 gr loadings be the most popular.
Today, Winchester sells the Model `94 in four configurations and three different calibers including . 30-30, . 38-55 and . 450 Marlin (the last is known as the Model 94 Trails End Takedown).
The Model 61 and 62 were both introduced in 1932. The 61 id s hammerless profile styled somewhat after the Model 12 shotgun. The 62 has a more traditional “Winchester look,” featuring a visible hammer and straight-grip stock.

I have a Winchester Model 190 with serial number B1302781. This model and serial nubmer does not show up on the Windhester site. Can you tell me when this rifle was manufactured?
ANSWER : The model 290 came out first, in 1965. The 190 came out in 1967. The 290 was made until 1973 and production of the 190 ended in 1980. There were approx. 2,150,000 model 190/290 made through the years.Since yours was made before the middle of the production run, and before 1973, I would guess late 60’s to around 1970 or 1971.

Hope this helps.

What is the age and value of my winchester 3030 model 94 serial number 3419978and 3647077.
ANSWER : Go to Winchester.com and check for a support tab. Most likely the support desk can look up the serial numbers to obtain the date of manufacture. However without seeing the rifles, on body can give you an accurate appraisal of them. You might also want to check for regulations that may prevent the shipping of these weapons to a duty station, and if you do ship them, make sure you do not disclose anywhere on the package that there are rifles contained inside. That may help the guns get there without being ” liberated” from your possession. Good luck!

ANSWER : IMPORTANT Recall info:
WINCHESTER MODEL 100 FIRING PIN RECALL – A notice dated 7-1990 relates the following
“PRODUCT SAFETY WARNING AND REPLACEMENT NOTICE. Attention owners of Winchester model 100
rifles and carbines please read this notice. In July of 1990 the following product safety
warning was issued by Winchester. It has come to our attention that the firing pin in the

———————————————————————————-
The following is Wisner’s rendition & info on the subject.
The difference in the old firing pin and the new one is as follows. The old replaced
style, was totally lathe tuned (round). While the new recall style is similar in lathe
turning on the front and back, but in the front midsection it has two flats milled, one
on each side. This makes the center section stronger. Also replaced is the bolt sleeve
lock pin (firing pin guide) which was made to accommodate this different shaped firing
pin
Part number for the new parts are, firing pin =1391ND, bolt sleeve locking pin =1491ND
The word was at the time this recall was in process was that if the firing pin would
break at the mid section and still remain in the gun as two pieces, the possibility of a
premature discharge before the bolt was locked was possible. This apparently was caused
by the firing pin tip (now not having a retracting spring) to be stuck forward, and
thereby slam-firing upon chambering.
The responsibility for the recall apparently was on Olin, as they were the parent company
at time of manufacture. Olin set up regional recall centers at three established US
gunshops. There was a manufacturing delay in the replacement firing pins, and a backlog
occurred, also some collectors did not like the idea of shipping their guns long
distances. Olin then also authorized other gunshops to make the required alterations.
Upon completion of the recall, the shops were to test fire the firearm and to stamp an
assigned letter on the inside top of the receiver as seen thru the magazine well with the
bolt retracted. The letter “B” represented Bolsa Gunsmithing, “L” was Lefever, and “N”
was for Nu-line Guns. The letter “X” apparently was for all the other independent shops.
However this identification information did not get communicated to some of the smaller
shops at the start of the project. The only way to tell if the gun as been modified, if
the ”letter” is not present, is to take the barrel & action out of the stock, remove the
trigger guard assembly and the try to rotate the firing pin by twisting it. If it does
NOT rotate, then the firing pin recall HAS been performed.

Help! Just bought a Remington 30 06 for my grandson that has a Bushnell Sportview U4124 4-12power scope mounted on it. I would like to sight it in at 100 yards using a 180 grain shell but I don’t have the owners manual and I don’t understand an on line explanation that I found. This is the on line message: “You’ll see two horizontal crosshairs, put the top one on the animals back then zoom in until the bottom one is on his stomach. Look at the numbers on the zoom dial there should be three lines they are D – deer, E – elk and A – antelope. The numbers are the distance to the game, you then turn the external elevation knob or turret to the matching distance and shoot dead on. No need to hold over for bullet drop. The sad part will be if you didn’t get the other turrets that would have come with it as they are calibrated to different calibers and bullet weights”
I don’t understand how to set the elevation knob to 100yards when its lowest shown number is 150. If I need other turrets how or where can I get them? Thanks, a frustrated grandfather.
ANSWER : You can contact the Remington directly who will ship you a free users manual. Here is the company’s Contact Us details:
