I bought my 9422 22LR sometime in the early 70s for $150. I still have it and it is still in pristine condition. The rifle holds 15 LRs and I used to lever them out in a few seconds to the consternation of my older brother (7 years older) who typically bought the ammo. He had and still has a Browning T-bolt with a 5-shot clip - he could out shoot me target-wise but it was a hoot being able to put 3 times as many rounds downrange than he could. I can echo the comments found on the web that this was a VERY well made firearm. Last year, I purchased a Marlin 1895GBL 45/70 and although it is a fine gun, the fit, finish, and action can't hold a candle to my 9422.
