I've been a Marlin owner (too many to mention) since I was 15 (a few decades ago) but I ran across this Winchester while chasing down a Marlin model that I've wanted for some time. I did some research, discovered that the price made it a no-brainer, and couldn't resist. It's quite a nice gun and the action is buttery smooth. I'm afraid I may catch Winchesteritis to go along with my Marlinitis! (the bluing is great, just some smudges & glare in the pics)

Very nice rifle. I foolishly sold one very similar when I was 15. Wish I could have that one back. I hope you enjoy the rifle.

Ouch!

Thanks, I'm sure I will. Now I have to determine if I want to mount a peep sight or scope. Since a 22 magnum has pretty good range, I'm leaning scope. I found some rings and I have a couple of good scopes that I could use. My only hesitation is that the scope mounting system on that rifle seems like it would be prone to movement forward/backward. I may just go with a peep sight since I already have the Marlin 1894M with a scope.

Jertex: That is a beautiful Rifle!
Good for you. I bought one similar to it this past summer while on a gun chasing trip to the west coast.
The model I purchased, alas, is also a 22 Magnum and its model designation is 94/22M - it has the straight (no pistol grip) butt stock.
I think your model is much more handsome/pleasing than my Rifle - even though my 94/22M has the checkered butt stock and forearm..
Back in 2,003 or maybe 2,004 I was out of state doing a body guard assignment in Bend, Oregon. We were working in teams of two in 12 hour shifts and it was our turn to have "daylight" so off my gun-nut partner and I go to all the gunshops in Bend and in nearby Redmond, Oregon. There on the wall of a small shop in Redmond was a Rifle just like yours (the stocks were "checkered" though IIRC) , but it was in the then newish 17 HMR caliber.
I had lots of cash but I decided to "sleep on it" and make sure I really wanted a "lever action" 17 HMR - a day or two later I had made up my mind and returned to that little shop and sadly the Rifle was gone - it had sold.
I have been looking for another one ever since!
Seen a couple but they were priced so high I have not pulled the trigger on one yet.
I am glad YOU did not hesitate as these Rifles nowadays are both popular and pricey.
Again enjoy that beautiful Rifle.

Jertex: I can NOT tell in either of your pictures if the "magazine tube" extends to the end of the barrel or does it stop back a ways from the muzzle?
TIA for clarification.

Yes, it's a little dark toward that end. I made a copy of the pic, cropped it, & brought up the shadows. See below.

I had one many years ago. It shot great, but I could not keep it from rusting.

That's odd, this gun is well over 30 years old and doesn't have one spot of rust on it. I wonder why yours was such a problem?

What is the difference in ones with the magazine all the way out to the end and those with shorter barrels?

Thanks

A wonderful find for you...I have always admired the Winchester 22 Classic models with the pistol grip stocks.

I'm not sure, but I've never had another rifle like it.
This was back in the 'late '80's.

I don’t own any Winchester levers but not because I don’t like them, I just haven’t been in the right place at the right time. That being said I am afraid to get my first one as I foresee getting into another obsession. But one couldn’t hurt.

In 67-68 era Browning used a salt curing on their stocks. Some 9422's were built by them .could be the reason for the rust

Had one like that, but in 22LR. GREAT little rifle, but something else came along that I had to have, and it went down the road.

Presently have a 9422 carbine in 22 mag W/lam stock. I've put a peep sight on it, that fits in the rear sight dovetail.

GREAT combo W/an Ivory bead front.

That's right, just try it, it's not like you can't stop once you start, like crack cocaine or anything. wink

I have no idea, I would like to know why VarmintGuy was asking, there's probably something I need to learn.

The 94/22 XTR Classics were only made for 3 years. If I remember correctly 85-86- 87. I know a few years ago they were bringing a premium over standard XTRs. As far as I know all the Classics had a magazine about like yours. Mine is a .22LR. I couldn't begin to guess at the number of thousands of rounds through it, all trouble free. I have no doubts that you will love yours.

Jertex: I was asking just out of curiosity - there seem to be a number of variations (styles) of that era Winchester 94/22's and I admire them but am completely uninformed about the nuances of the different models.
I did have a "love affair" (was a serious collector of), going on, about 40 years ago with the Winchester 94/22 Classics/XTR's big brothers (the Model 64's, 94's, 71's. 53's and 55's).
My finding a learning source for these later Model 94/22's has been fruitless so far.
Anyway I sold most all of my lever guns and turned the monies into Model 70 Winchesters - but I still admire the Winchester levers (centerfire and rimfire).
Just learnin'.

"In 67-68 era Browning used a salt curing on their stocks. Some 9422's were built by them .could be the reason for the rust"

Browning never built any of the 9422's, so their salt curing issue doesn't apply here. Most likely, it's an environmental issue. High humidity requires frequent maintenance and oiling to keep the rust at bay. I live in a very arid part of the country and have never had issues with rust here, but did in a previous location that had a much more humid environment.

That said, the OP has a really beautiful 9422!
