Spent yesterday dissassembling, cleaning and reassembling a Winchester 100 gas piston operated carbine. Didn't even have any parts left over! :D I am impressed with this little 308, anyone else have some experience with one?

Just got done cleaning and oiling 4 of em saturday. IMO it's one of the better gas operated hunting rifles out there, it's a shame winchester doesn't make it anymore.

I have one, my Grandpa's deer gun, passed to me:

It's very early with a 4-digit serial number (19xx) and a Bousch & Loumb scope on it, in .308. The serial number gives it a 1961 manufacture date.

It's a total safe queen. I think I've only brought it out to shoot twice in the last 5 years. Mostly because I don't know how to disassemble the darn thing to clean the action and internals.

So any tips you can give on how to take it apart (or at least get me started in that direction) would be much appreciated.

Oh yeah, it's got a pretty stout kick too, being so light.

I read somewhere they also made these in .243 and .284 (?), in rifle and carbine lengths. The rarest and most collectible one is the .284 carbine. I check gunbroker every once in awhile and they don't go for outragous prices yet (usually less than $600), but most of the ones I see are real beaters. I mean dogs. The one I have is near-pristine compared to what I see on gunbroker.

I have a model 100 and a model 88. I love theese rifles and they just keep going up in value. I love a lever action with one piece wood stocks. The M100 was designed with an M1A action.

They are really pretty easy to take apart. Just remove the front swivel stud screw from the stock (it screws into the barrel), cycle the action back and pull the stock off the gun. Make sure the action is all the way back or the stock will not come off. After that it's pretty self explanitory on how to take em apart.

Like I said I love a full wood stocked lever gun.
