Man that's Deja Vu all over again. I have a 190, my first .22 that I received in the early 70's. My cousin and I ran at least a brick thru it almost every Sunday. It got put up when I went to the Navy, and I just got it out again this spring. The trigger felt like it was dragging on gravel. I took her apart and was shocked that it functioned at all considering the amount of crap that was in it. I used Hoppes and Kroil and an old toothbrush. Lots of elbow action. She cleaned up well, but the trigger pull is still outrageously heavy. I guess I've been spoiled since then, so back to the safe it went. I'll never get rid of it, but I doubt if it ever gets shot very much again either.
