Found a 490 which was water damaged, must have been water drenched from the buttstock up to the receiver. Finish was toast and light surface rust on receiver, no internal rust luckily. So I refinished it and used copper wool and oil to get rid of rust. Here it is and it shoot great.Winchester 490 - 2_1561242981930.jpgWinchester 490 - 4_1561243105019.jpgWinchester 490 - 3_1561243148443.jpgWinchester 490 - 2_1561243219926.jpg

That does look really good, much nicer woodgrain than my M490.

First of all let me say thanks for all the nice comments. The 490 shoots great! It came with a surprise... the 10 round magazine. Just try and find one. I ordered a 5 round mag in an original box and it's prefect. Winchester did good on their final semi-automatic 22.

Love my 490. Such a solid feeling, good looking rimfire.

I need to get it out of the safe and put a few rounds through it.
