It is stamped on the barrel and would be either .30-30 or .32 Winchester special as the two most popular calibers. Very early rifle might be marked 30W or 30Win.

Actually, there are a lot more possibilities than those two. This model was manufactured from 1894 until 2006 and has been chambered for everything from .22 to 38-55, including some like the .357 magnum that are usually considered revolver cartridges.

Add 44 WCF to that list.

The chambering will be stamped into the barrel next to or under the Winchester name.Model 1890's all had .22 caliber barrels, but they could be chambered in short, long, and long rifle (LR).You might even find one in .22 WRF (The fore runner of .22 magnum.)If there is no chambering stamped in the barrel, or it only says .22, it's chambered for the .22 short.The reason being that it was made before .22 longs and LRs were commercially available.

How do you use Winchester model 190?

Your Winchester model 190 is a semi-auto .22LR chambered rifle with a tube magazine that holds 15 rounds of .22LR ammo.You start with unscrewing the magazine tube which is located under the barrel and pulling out until there is a small window in the tube exposed.Then load the tube with the correct caliber rounds with the rim of the shell facing the receiver.After loading push the tube back into the receiver and screw or lock the magazine.Then pull the operating lever on the bolt back and let go of the bolt.This will chamber a round in the chamber of your model 190.Put the safety on until ready to fire at your target.The rifle will feed each round as you pull the trigger.Unload by pulling the bolt back each time until the rounds are finished being ejected from the receiver.
