I have a Winchester Model 25, 12 gauge that I got from my Dad when he passed away. It's circa 1950. I've shot skeet/trap with it a few times. So far I have to clean it from the muzzle end because I can't figure out how to remove the barrel. I always put a clean rag into the receiver, but I just hate pushing all that crap and chemicals through that way.

If anyone knows how to do this can you post the instructions here?

The Model 25 was manufactured in between 1948 and 1954, if I recall correctly. The owner's manual is one sheet, printed front and back, with two columns on each page in large print. The last column is blank. There is nary a diagram nor a picture to be found, unless you count the Winchester logo. My current owner's manual for my Ruger Model 10/22 carbine is fifty-one pages, and littered with pictures and diagrams. Since my ignorance of pump shotguns is profound, I am rendered helpless by such timeless prose as this:

TO DISMOUNT PARTS ATTACHED TO BARREL - Remove magazine band screw and slide forward on barrel, remove Magazine Lock and screw in face of receiver, unscrew Magazine with action slide handle from receiver. Unscrew magazine plug screw and remove magazine plug-spring and follower. Unscrew action slide sleeve screw cap and pull off handle, slide magazine out of sleeve, be sure action slide spring is on rear side of stop collar on magazine. Assemble in reverse order.
Does that help? I don't know how to do this personally, but I searched and found that. Hope that helps.

I found the same one. I don't think it describes how to remove the barrel though, just some of the other stuff. I think it requires some tools. It isn't an easy removal like my Mossberg (at least I don't think so).
