Our Assessment: This is a Winchester 9422, based, of course, on the company’s tried and true Model 94 Lever Action carbine. The 9422 is chambered for the .22 short, long, or long rifle caliber, making for a fun little plinker or pest control gun. This 9422 is in Very Good-plus condition, showing signs of light and responsible use. The rifle is also equipped with a Weaver 4x scope. This would be a great rifle for taking care of all kinds of varmint as well as being a nice piece to add to a Winchester collection. Please see our pictures and good luck!
