so i'm in the market for a Winchester 9422


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


where's the best place to buy a NIB or LNIB Winchester 9422 XTR other than gunbroker? I missed out on one that was NIB the other night....it sold for $850 and I wished I had bid on it. Can any of you recommend other reputable auction sites, or even gun shops that sell firearms through their sites that might have a great condition 9422?

Auction Arms is another site, similar to Gunbroker.

IIRC, Auction Arms has changed into GunAuction.com

Some gun auctions are actually sales, IF the seller has enabled the "buy it now" feature - usually more than most are willing to pay w/o an actual auction to that level.

In every one of them, auction site or sales site, a buyer isn't dealing with that particular site - they are dealing with individual sellers, some private, some FFL's, of varying ethics.

thanks for the recommendations everyone.

I wound up buying a 9422 through gunauction.com. I found an XTR version that was made in 1983 that had a decent BIN price, so I snatched it up. seller said it was a safe queen. it sure is purty

Nice rifle! Winchester built some fine rifles those days. Mine is a 78' uncheckered XTR, trying to keep it looking like a safe queen and still shoot it. Now you can look for a 9422M to match. Let us know how she shoots.

When Winchester was producting this nice looking .22 Lever Action, back several years ago; I considered buying one, but didn't. Just about every Gun Shop & Gun Show had one as they were fairly common item to stock. Now, since they are not produced anymore, the price of them have gone out-of-sight.

that's why I nabbed one now rather than wait. for the life of me I can't understand why Winchester doesn't bring back the 9422. there's clearly demand for it

I can't figure Winchester out either. They have discontinued several popular rifles & Shotguns over the years. No wonder they "Tanked".

I remain cautiously optimistic. I figure if they brought the Model 70 (with CRF) back into production they're on the right path. maybe one of the higher ups at FN will bring the 9422 back into production. However, Winchester's prices have skyrocketed in the last year or two, especially their Miroku made Winchester 94's. Beautiful lever guns but waaaaaay too pricey for me

I know they are rather pricey. I can remember when one could buy a Winchester Model 94 in .30-30 Win. < $100!! Model 70's were selling for around $250.00, back in the '70's.

Winchester 9422 re-start?

If you think about what guns are most popular and probably profitable to manufacture, I doubt the 9422 would come back into existence. Much detail/workmanship involved and look at what Remlin has done with the 39A. I have read LOTS of negative feedback about the quality of these newer production models and think that too much time and effort has to go into producing a mass-marketed rifle for it to be cost effective and more importantly successful in the marketplace. We have been spoiled by some of the work over time that some people feel just cannot be duplicated these days.

ended up with the Grand Slam

The first 9422 I purchased back in the early 90's was the magnum model. I loved the way it shot and shoots so much that I purchased the standard .22 model about a year later. Both of these are the Trapper models with checkered stock and high gloss bluing. I have shot and cherished both of these fine little carbines more than most the other guns in my safe. I did not realize until about a year ago that Winchester also made briefly the 9417 chambered for the high performing .17HMR cartridge. I acquired a full size rifle in this chambering last spring. I paid a good price for the honor of owning it but felt that it would round out the small collection I have managed to piece together of surely one of the finest rimfire lever guns ever offered. The 9417 has a checkered stock also. I will try to post photos of the 3 little guns later this week. They make a nice trio.
