    I would like some opinions from you guys. I have been wanting a Winchester Model 9422M XTR for some time now. I have a Winchester Model 70 XTR Sporter Magnum in 300 Win Mag cal. The gun was made in 1988. It is in excellent condition with a better grade of wood, 1X ? Do you think an even trade for a 9422M XTR in excellent condition is reasonable, or one is worth more than the other?:confused: I tend to think the 300 Win Mag should be worth more than the 22 Mag. I appreciate any comments.

    Personally, I wouldn't trade a .300 win mag to a .22 mag. I think the .300 having a better grade of wood, would be a higher value. That's just speculation on my part. Maybe someone with a value book, will be along shortly to help.

    You own a gun that is pressed into service by US sniper teams and you want to trade it for a plinking rifle? Please tell me my eyes are deceiving me.

    Get a $180 marlin and keep your very fine, hard to replace rifle.

    The 9422 and 9422M aren't made anymore, and therefore people who own them are quite proud ($$$$$) of them.

    I'm looking for one myself, (actually both) but I'd never consider that kind of trade.

    Thanks for the input. I agree that the 22 Mag pales in comparison to the 300 Win Mag as far as the cartridge goes. The Model 70 is an awesom rifle also. Unfortunately, people turn their noses up at the push feed Model 70. Everyone wants a pre 64 model. Locutus is correct about the prices of the discontinued 9422 & 9422M. I see them bringing $600 - $1200 NIB. Anyone know the value of a 1988 push feed Model 70 in excellent condition? I bought the gun with hopes of Elk hunting out West. Due to the economy and tapping my savings, I doubt that will happen. I have deer rifles for hunting these Missouri hills and the 300 is just way overkill. Most of my deer are taken from 30 - 100 yards, with 50 being about the medium. More input on dollar amount values would be appreciated. Thanks everyone!

    I didnt read everything just the op.

    Do NOT make that trade. The winchester you mentioned goes for 400-500 realistically depends on where you are. The rifle you have, in todays market would probably bring 600$ maybe more.
    If you decide to trade you should get at least 100$ and the rifle. Just my opinion

    If your average shot is only 100 yards or less and you have other rifles.
    Heck trade the thing. Get a nice plinker that isn't around much

    If I had a need for a 300 I would offer to trade my Browning BL22 which I would consider a better gun than the 9422 but I can't think of a reason to own the 300 Mag. as I am no longer physically able to hunt. Don't make the trade even, get something to boot the trade.

    i vote for keeping the model 70, or getting more along in trade with the rifle, maybe cash, ammo, case.

    Thanks for the replys. I think you guys have reassured me that the value of my mdl 70 is in the $600 range. I agree that the 300 Win Mag is fantastic. It is just way overkill for what I need. I am trying to put a dollar amount expected on the two guns for a trade situation. I am not talking ballistics. I know what the 300 can do. No, I am not wanting to trade for any 22 plinker, even if it is a lever gun. I have a Marlin 39A Golden. I am looking specifically for a 9422M XTR with checkered wood in excellent condition, no scope mounting marks, complete with front sight hood and all original with no modifications. No, my mind is not made up, as I do not have a trader. I look at Gun Broker and see that the 9422M is quite a high price gun. I want one to compliment my Colt single action 22 Mag. OK, so what do you feel the 9422M XTR with checkered wood, in excellent condition is worth? Thanks:p

    If you're really got your heart set on the 22, it might be a reasonable trade, for you. The cheapest I've found on the 9422M is around 750, except for a basket case that needed work and it was still over 400 bucks. I wouldn't make this trade but for you it might be worth it.

    When it comes to trades someone usually makes out better in dollar value. What the traders have to do is fill the need each has with the item the other has. In other words if it works for you do it if it don't, then don't. I would ask for a little sweetener cash to even out the trade.
