Our Assessment: This is a Winchester 9422M, based, of course on the company’s tried and true Model 94 Lever Action carbine. The standard 9422 was chambered for the .22 LR and shorter rimfire cartridges, but the 9422M is chambered for the more powerful .22 Magnum. This cartridge has more power, being suitable for larger varmints like coyote and can shoot further than the smaller rimfire cartridges. The action has to be felt to understand, with a flick of the wrist, you’ve already got another round chambered.
This example is sharp, the stocks have only light wear, the bore is strong with sharp rifling and no erosion.
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.
