Took a friend to the local range. He said his Winchester model 190 was acting up. Acting up meant 3 round bursts! Put it away fast. Any suggestions on where to look first would be appreciated. C.Good

The most obvious thing to check first is the sear. This is a pretty old rifle, so some wear here is to be expected. I'd take it to a good gunsmith. A sticking firing pin could also cause slam fires. A thorough cleaning might help if that's the case.
