Butch,

My opinion is that there is only one kind of action.

I have two older Win 94's...one is a fancy checkered one that is my sons and it is a fine firearm.

My personal .22 rifle is an old 9422M.  I am partial to it since it saved my life one day when I had to kill a charging moose. The blueing is worn off it in many places and the butt has a couple of teeth marks in it (dog...grrrrrrrr&#33<!--emo&;)--><img src="http://beartoothbullets.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=';)'><!--endemo--> but everything tells a story. There has been many a meal provided by it and no small amount of hides streached on it's behalf. Definately a "keeper"

Enjoy!

Scotty

Bisley Butch,
In the late 70's I bought myself a standard 9422 with the first income tax refund from my new job.  I still have that same rifle.  It has worked so well these 20 some years that I have never bought another .22 rifle.  
Accruacy is good, altho I have never bench tested it. Reliability is excellent.  And I suppose this is most important, in the thousands of rounds I have put through it, NOTHING has broken.
I think you have made a good choice.

Note:  I just checked my records.  I bought the 9422 in December 1977, for $156.35 retail.
No repairs, no breakage, no servicing of any kind.  Wish I could say the same for all my guns.

I bought a Win.9422 Legacy this last Christmas and put a Leupold 2.5 scope on mine. Groups about 2" at 50Yds. with CCI Stingers that i like to use on Skunks and other pests. Action is extremley smooth out of the box with a vary good trigger from the factory.
Nice blueing on the reciever but poor on the barrel and lever. Wood and checkering nice. Good balance.

Bisley Butch, I have a Winchester 9422 in .22LR that my parents gave me for my High School graduation gift in 1973 - which by the way was right after they first came out.  I had lusted over one at the local hardware store when it first came in and my Dad got it from them.  It is accurate and fun, high quality, and I wouldn't take a gold bar for it in trade.  You will find that it is a keeper, and it really complements a M94 30/30 if you have one.  A nice companion piece is a Ruger Single Six.  Odessa

I found a 9422 from a guy who needed fast cash, being there was a baby due any minute...$150.00
Turned out to be the XTR model with the high gloss stock and takedown screw.  Came with a 4x burris scope. Barely used.  What a great gun.  I have alot of .22's, but this one is the most fun to shoot!
