     Hello,

I have my fathers 32 WSP Model 94 he purchased in 1948. It has been a safe queen for the last 10+ years. I would like to take do a field strip clean and lube, and shoot it again. Is there any manuals for this rifle. The one that is on the Winchester web site is just different enough from mine I would be uncomfortable to use it. Any ideas or hints to give me a hand on this 

Thank You

Jeff

Hello Jeff,

Google “pre-64 Winchester Model 94 manual”

In almost all cases you can clean this gun without taking it apart.  Get some gun cleaner/lubricant/protectant like Breakfree CLP.  Spray all the metal surfaces inside and out. Use a rag and tooth brush.  I would recommend that you don’t take it apart.

If it feeds rounds through the mag as it should, fires & ejects properly, there’s no reason to take it apart.  If it fails to do any of those things properly, that would be a reason to take it apart, provided you have a good idea of how to fix it.  Nothing a gunsmith hates worst than a partially disassembled gun brought in by someone who tried to work on it, but failed.

Agreed, cleaning a ‘94’s action isn’t normal maintenance. Just open the action and place it in a gun vise breech down to clean the bore from the muzzle. Hose down the open action with CLP or Hornady One Shot if you don’t like the way the action feels. If there’s a problem disassemble and clean after studying a manual and maybe two or three good videos. If cleaning doesn’t fix your 94’s issue and the problem wasn’t apparent during your disassembly it’s time to get some experienced help. If you get confused or get in a hurry or distracted put the screwdriver down and walk away. Your 94 has been around for 70+ years, it will wait until you are ready. When you’re done wipe down the exterior with light oil for a shooter or apply Ren Wax for a safe queen.

One other thing we didn’t talk about is screwdrivers.  If you don’t have a good set of gunsmith type screwdrivers don’t touch any of the screws.

Thanks, Chuck. Sometimes I forget not everyone owns two or three sets of gunsmith screwdrivers. I’m pretty fair at repairing damaged screws but I can’t make them “good as new”.
