I have my father's 1959 Winchester Model 94 (serial number in the 241XXXX range). This is a great Hill Country deer gun and shoots wonderfully, even after 50 years. I've been trying to find a field stripping guide online somewhere and I'm coming up blank. I give the barrel a good cleaning and oil the action every year, but I'd like to do a more in-depth cleaning because of it's age. Anybody know of one somewhere?
I'm also tempted to lighten the trigger a little, if that's possible, but I don't know if that can even be done. Anybody have some wisdom on this, too?
Half the time I want to get a new rifle and put this one in a place of honor, but it's just too much fun to shoot to relegate it to the gunrack! Besides, its hard to get it to stay on the rack with the side mounted scope.

Springs are cheap - your gun and your life aren't.
