Our Assessment: During the Winchester Model 9422’s 33-year production run—from 1972 through 2005—the well-built and extremely accurate .22 rimfire lever-action embodied our ongoing admiration for the American West and filled the need for an economical look-alike of its big-bore Model 94 counterpart. It’s unsurprising then that the 9422 became one of the most popular rifles in Winchester’s lineup. This rifle is a High Grade Tribute model with a “Model 9422 Tribute” on the left of the receiver, a mounted rider on the right. Aptly, there were 9,422 tribute rifles manufactured. This 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 or as a collectors piece.
