Well gentlemen, here I am, another Model 100 owner looking for all of the correct info. Thankyou so much guys, for taking the time to post any info you had to offer. I have a bolt locking problem, probably steming from the recalled firing pin. All honesty, this forum probably saved a few people from a serious accident. You wouldnt believe the amount of grapevine stories I heard about this rifle.
It was nick named "The Widow Maker". Look out deer, here we come.    )

For you Winchester 100 owners, I have on hand either one or two new factory  OEM magazines for these rifles.... leftovers from when we had the gunshop several years ago.  I don't know if anyone is in need of extra mags, but they're available if interested.  Found them digging around through left-over inventory the other day.... strange the things we hold on to isn't it?

Blessings,

Marshall

Indeed they are for .243/.308, and I've already had a PM about them.  I really don't know what is fair as far as price goes... they are surplus to me at this point.  I suppose that I should go dig them out, and get some digital photos of them so that those interested can see what they are potentially buying, and go from there.  Perhaps I'll do that this evening, if not in the morning!

Thanks for the inquiry!

God Bless,

Marshall

the honest prices I've seen have been real beaters for $40 to pristine new ones for $100 each.
 Saw two at a Gun show recently in Middletown NY for $80 apiece in pretty good condition.  Called Meg-gar and Pro mag to see if they made an aftermarket and their answer was " what kind of gun?"  Like everything else in gun trading; if it's good it's Gold, if it's not so good, then the dealer's will tell you it's "rare"!!!!

I pulled out the mags I told you Gents about, and low and behold, one was a Winchester M100 for .308/.243 and the other a Browning 81 in the same calibers... I'll keep the Browning!

I did open the package on this new magazine to ensure that there had been no condensation or rust develop while stored away. *As you can see from the photos, I photographed it from before being open, to top and bottom profile shots. *What appears as brown on the mag is cosmoline, which I have not cleaned off.

It is factory new, and perfect in all respects, as you might expect coming fresh from the package.

It's really interesting how much interest I've had in this magazine, several PM's and a couple or three email. *I don't know how to fairly sell it off, other than you can PM me with an offer, I'll take the best offer without turning this into an auction. *Just send me your best offer, and I'll pay the postage to send it priority mail to you (in the US).

Thanks for the interest, and here's the photos.

God Bless,

Marshall

Well guys, I believe I was one of the first PM to Marshall about the mag. I just wanted to see how many he had and what price. I already have two mags, so I&#39;ll back away for the gentlemen who truly need it. Thankyou anyway Marshall.

Hey guys!!!!
I know it has been a while since we last discussed the model 100, but I had her down at the range the other day to check the POA, since I just got my Weaver scope back from the repair facility in El Paso. They did a very fine job of reconditioning my old K6....
Anyway, here is what it shot with 165 Hornaday soft points and some ball 147's at 100 yards.

I think I'll keep it!

Bye

Does anybody know if the firing pin can be ordered. I don't live near a gun smith and would like to change it myself. If not has someone tried the number from Canada?

This is Fresh info as I just did a couple

Just call this number and give them your serial No.# and they will tell you if you have the Replacement Firing Pin.
1800-252-5734
1618-258-2000

Winchester

If you dont they will require you to pull your pin and send it to them along with your serial no# and they will send you a New pin and a 30$ Check to have it replaced

Winchester Model 100 Owners Manual & Recall

Hi there,

I own a mint Model 100 in .243 that I decided to get upgraded based on the danger of the old firing pin. I went on the web and found some old site that said Nu-Line Guns in St. Charles Mo. (St. Louis suburb) was the recall warranty station. I called them and told them that I was send it in on recall and the person didn't say that they weren't an "authorized" recall warranty station although I DIDN'T specifically ask if they were. Anyway, I sent it UPS and it was delivered the next morning. I waited a week and no word so I called and they said it was received and that they would send me a receipt. 3 days later I received a copy of some BS letter saying how much they charged for "incoming inspection" and that an "estimate" would be forthcoming. It is now almost a month and nothing from them. The point of this diatribe is that Olin in Alton Il. has a separate phone # and address just for the Model 100 recall and if you call 1`-800-852-5734 they can tell you what you have to do in order to get your rifle upgraded with the new firing pin.
Oh ****, here is a copy of the letter from Olin:

I am enclosing a copy of my Owners manual for the Winchester Model 100. Enjoy it.

ENJOY!!

Glad this thread is relatively alive - saved me ALOT of time. I have not done the firing pin thing because I don't know how to take the silly thing apart! Now, thanks to all, I can feel better about it. See how this goes.

Thanks to all again!

M100 firing pin

Hello everyone. probably the newest of the newbies. I found this site search for someone or anyone that knew how to get the firing pin out of a mod 100 winchester. I have the rifle toyally disassembled and the bolt in my hand, minus the bolt head and rotating sleeve. Just the bolt body with the old firing pin inside.

How does one remove it?

Replace Model 100 Firing Pin

Just received my pin today, pretty easy fellas, you can do it. With the schematics in a previous post, recalled pin should pull right out. Send it right out. 6 day turn around for me in Indiana. Still waiting on $30 "Gunsmith Fees". Drift the pin #5 "Bolt Sleeve Lock Pin" out and this will come with the replacement pin. You can also push pin #10 " Ejector Pin" out and clean whole bolt and extractor. I highly recommend a generous cleaning of the whole gas cyclinder assembly. Only problem I had was putting pin #5 back in, extractor has two possible reassembly positions 180 degrees apart. Only one way is correct. Don't know how to describe which way is correct. During reassembly when you try and slide the bolt back in the receiver you will be able to tell if it is rotated correct. Make sure when you reinsert pin #43 "Operating Slide Pin" it is in the turned small diameter of the new firing pin. Went out and made 3 inch group from 25 yards before I replaced the scope. **** fine rifle. Good luck all and thanks for the Manual Scans.
