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 Winchester lever action rifle is in Superb condition, showing little use. This model 9422 has been custom engraved, with the barrel marked “C / CS” above the Winchester proof mark and “PR” marking on the bottom tang. There are incredible scroll motifs on each side and on top of the receiver. The top tang and barrel bands are also engraved. This would be a great rifle for taking care of all kinds of varmints as well as being a nice piece to add to a Winchester collection. Please see our photos, good luck and happy bidding!
