Our Assessment: The Winchester 9422M is a late-era lever action rifle that makes the best of the storied functionality and dependability of the rifles that came before it. The rifle was rather popular in the time it was manufactured, the commission from CDNN starting in 1984 and going until 2005. This rifle was one of 500 in comission from CDNN in the 20″ barrel and .22 WMR. This rifle is an ideal choice for those new to shooting, or for parents that want their children to begin taking the responsibility of being a shooter. Please see our photos and good luck!
