Our Assessment: This is a Winchester 9422 XTR, based, of course, on the company’s tried and true Model 94 Lever Action carbine. The 9422 XTR is chambered for the .22 short, long, or long rifle caliber, making for a fun little plinker or pest control gun. This rifle is in Fine condition, showing little signs of use. 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. It comes in an original box with a manual, which should grab some attention from the collectors. Please see our pictures and good luck!
