    New Winchester 9422

    I was out and about today and stopped by a gunshow here in town. There was a guy at a table that had a Winchester 9422 NIB. I checked the serial # and found that it was one of the early models ( no checkering) I have been watching the price go up on these little guys like a rocket, but really wanted one. It was the end of the show and people were starting to pack up, I looked at it for a minute, listened to the guys hard-luck story, and offered him $500.00 for it, paid the man and brought it home. It took me about 2 hours to clean all the packing grease out of it! Geez, Now I feel kinda guilty, but I bet I get over it after a trip to the range!!!

    Nice find, congrats.

    What is the serial #? The red, white and blue boxes were used from the mid-1970s thru 1981.

    That's a pretty rifle.
    When in doubt empty the magazine.

    I wouldn't suggest hunting deer with a 22LR

    Nice, that is an early one, approximately 1973.

    My dad bought me a 9422M 36 years ago. It was my 1st firearm. I still have it and couldn't even guess the number of rounds I've shot through it but it must be in the 10's of thousands.

    Nice find.

    You're welcome Sir. The 9422s were intro'd in 1972, I believe.

    Well, it WAS NIB, but I cannot leave a firearm sitting around without being shot for very long. I took it up to the range today after work and ran about 50 rounds through it, it shoots and functions perfectly. It took about 5 rounds to get it sighted in, the rest was spent perforating half sized Pepsi cans!!
    I went and treated it to a new case, and put the box and paperwork in a safe spot, I was told that those items add value to the gun.

    thanks again for the info on this rifle OD, I really appreciate it! The XTR model was the style with the curved lever and a pistol grip stock, is that correct? I've shot one of those and found it to be a very accurate rifle

    Congrats, they are fine shooters.
    Do hang onto the box and paper work, Winchester collectors are as bad as Colt collectors, and yep, they do add to it's value. The early XTRs were straight stocked and had no checkering, they just had a high-gloss finish on the wood and XTR stamped on the barrel, just ahead of the receiver.
