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 rifle is a part of a special production run for CDNN of Texas, hence “TEX” in the serial number prefix. There were 500 rifles manufactured in four different series (2,000 total). It is in Fine-Excellent condition showing faint indications of use. The rifle still has a very good bore and strong mechanics and would make a welcome addition to a collection.
