Our Assessment: This is a Winchester 9422, based, of course, on the company’s tried and true Model 94 Lever Action carbine. The action has to be felt to understand, with a flick of the wrist, you’ve already got another round chambered. This well-built rimfire lever-action made its debut in 1972, and this example was manufactured in 1988. 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!
