I have a question about this rifle. I have a guy that wants to trade one for a Garmin GPS tracking collar that I have. The collar new is over 600 dollars. I bought it and have never put it on my dog, she hunts so close that I don't need it. I would sell it for 525.00.
My question is, the guy says this rifle is going for 800 dollars on gunbroker in beat up condition. I went to the site and the closest one to the condition of his is at a high bid of 406.00.
The guy says these are starting to be collector rifles, (which I don't care, I buy my guns to use), is this true.
I'm good with a fair trade I just don't want to get took on the deal.
He has pics of it and it doesn't look too bad. He says the bluing is 85% and the wood is 75% from new. It doesn't have any checkering on the stock or the forearm.
Just wondering if anybody knows anything about these guns.

Thanks, Leinieman

Had one years ago and sold to a coworker for about $250, if I remember right.

Think they are out of production now, so naturally everyone wants one. For the condition described, think you may want to see if he will kick in some boot with the deal. Sounds like he's about $100 shy.

While he may be correct about them being collectable, collecters don't want 85 and 75 % guns. What he is offering is a shooter, while neat lookers they are not great shooters. I'd want about 250 in boot.

Yeah I called the guy out on his price, using Gunbroker like he said and I haven't heard back from him. So I think I might have ticked him off. Oh well! Shame on him for over pricing his gun.

I have seen these rifles go for over 500 " http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=211214223 as a matter of fact ive seen two already reach over 600..and one sell for 635 on gunsamerica.com not the legacy models, just the plain jane un-checkered specimens.

and as far as them not being "great shooters" There might be one or two that fit that bill, but from what i have read and seen, you might be suprised how well these rifle do shoot!

Just my 2 cents

I have a 9422 and a 9422M. Both were made in 1972, the first year they were made. Both of mine are 98-99% guns, and both have been fired. As far as accuracy, both mine shoot better than most lever guns, and does almost as well as many bolt actions.
The very early models without checkering are preferred by most collectors. Quality is felt to be better on the early models when the machinery and tooling to make them were in the best shape. Some later guns have issues caused by ill fitting parts.
Most 98-99% guns will sell in the $700 range usually.
