Could someone tell me more about the barrel and receiver on this gun. The only serial number I found was on the lower tang. There’s no 90 or 1890 on the barrel and the bottom of the barrel is stamped H L. Thank you IMG_3462-2.jpegImage EnlargerIMG_3464-2.jpegImage EnlargerIMG_3463-2.jpegImage EnlargerIMG_3466-2.jpegImage Enlarger

Appears to be a correctly marked early (1899) 2nd variation 1890. Can’t access my reference library at the moment but looks like an honest gun.

Thank you, do you know when they started marking the barrels 1890?

Barrels began to be marked with Model 1890 in early 1906 at approx. ser.#270,000. At the same time the tang was no longer marked with model 1890, simply “Winchester Trademark”. Unlikely to see both the barrel and the tang with 1890 (but there may be a few exceptions during this transition period).

So I’m trying to figure out a way to get the barrel reset. It has come loose and doesn’t lock up tight to the receiver anymore. Of you tighten it till it’s tight the sights don’t sit on top and the bolt doesn’t sit in the receiver flush. I can’t seem to find anyone who wants to try and turn the barrel in a lathe because then the spacing for the bolt will need adjusted. I thought about a shim of some kind. Any thoughts? 

 

Thank you

That ought to work, but how do you make it without machine tools?  Something easier to do would be using a center punch to make dimples around the brl shank on the shoulder of the brl where it meets the rcvr.  If you can upset the steel enough to make the brl index properly, then you could use Locktight to prevent it loosening.
