I inherited my grandfather’s Winchester Model 65 built in 1938. It’s in pretty good shape. I want to test it out on the range, but I need to clean it and make sure everything is working correctly. The problem I am having is there doesn’t seem to be any manuals for this rifle anywhere on the Internet. I called Winchester customer service and emailed Cornell Publications and neither had anything for this model or any models related.
Would anyone on this forum happen to have a copy of the manual for this rifle and year of manufacture that they are willing to share electronically? I would greatly appreciate it.
Also, is there anything that I should pay special attention to when cleaning and/or operating this firearm?
Thank you kindly,

As Bert said the Model 65 is basically a Model 1892. You can get an Model 1892 disassembly manual from Homestead parts look them up on a search. I have all their manuals and they are good references. I have disassembled many 92’s and it isn’t that hard to do in fact you can probably find a video on Youtube. A good table, a couple of trays for parts , a set of good punches and gunsmith screwdrivers. Its not hard to do
