    The first gun I purchased with my money is my 94-22m in 1975, paid a flat $100 for it. Great little lever guns.

    Bought one in '78 for $168 and sold a short time later to a dealer for $75. :eek:

    Nice looking rifle with a nicely blued finish and nice walnut stock but I remember noticing a lot of machining marks on the some of the internals and the spring loaded feed tube would pop out fairly often in use. (would be an easy fix with a small file)

    Priced used ones on GunBroker lately? :eek:

    Buy all ten and resell them for a fortune! :D

    The 9422 is a fantastic rifle. There are numerous models and grades of this rifle but you are talking about paying half price. Get it and enjoy it. You will keep it for ever.

    Paid $300 for mine, in probly '92. Still have it of course, but it doesnt get taken out much anymore. It was my first .22, and saw lots of use. Never had any issues with it.

    My wife game me a 9422M for Christmas in 1985 and its a very nice rifle. I haven't shot it in a number of years but I wouldn't let it go either. I have no idea what she paid for it but she bought it from J.C. Penneys. Those were the days.

    'Tis a pity you're only being offered one. I have a 9422M that I dearly love. I've tried a few times to get a .22LR but came up short each time, so I had to settle for a Henry H001T. My wife, especially, likes the Henry but there's just something about that Winnie 9422...

    Yeah i have priced them and i said "hell yeah" at 500 bucks i cant get hurt even if its in descent used shape. NIB i will take it all day. Yeah i wish i could get more than 1 but its his deal and i am just fortunate he would sell me one at his cost. Just not sure when the deal will be made but i am anxious to get it. :)

    The early ones were made by Winchester. The later ones were produced by the Holding company WRA. The early ones were real Winchesters.:)

    I need to dig mine out sometime and run the numbers, see when it was made. Its the uncheckered version. I got it used, in around '90 or '91 i think. Previous owner (other than the shop owner) was a lawyer and had bought it new.

    Well, mine checks out as a mid '76. Was actually kind of hoping for '78 since I was born that year, but its ok. Lol. My 94 .30-30 checks out as '74.
