The 9422 was introduced in 1972, so if you have a pre-64, it must be a really early and really valuable prototype. I just recently looked at the prices being asked for these, they seemed a trifle high to me. I guess it's another case of people wanting what they can't have. At least something good came out of Winchester post-64. James Fawcett
I have a 9417 (17 HMR) that's a tackdriver. Hoping to try it on sage rats this spring.<br>
Also have a 9422 in 22LR that was 1 of 500. It has a 16" barrel with a color cased receiver. My son has one too. Told him I'd match him if he earned half of it.
when I went shopping for a 9422 in 1972 they cost $149.......and I was makin' $325/month working at the local TV station....Browning was asking $86.50 for their BL-22. I bought the Browning..still have it and 10's of thousands of rounds later it still shoots like a hot damn!
If you're still looking, somebody just posted a .22LR and a .22Mag over at rimfirecentral.com. Click on the link above. I don't know you, the seller, or anything about the guns, so you're on your own. James Fawcett
