When I take someone to the range for their first taste of shooting, I bring one of my 9422 rifles. Because almost everyone has seen Western movies and TV shows, novices seem to instinctively know how to operate the rifle. Because my rifles are .22 Long Rifle, there is low noise and low recoil. People shooting for the first time are not intimidated by it. When I know that the time is coming for my final check out, the rifles will be going to someone very special to cherish, appreciate, and to shoot.

The one I found is a 25t/h anniversary, it will make a nice companion to my minty 1951 94 30-30. I was thinking about carefully shooting it but I think I have to find another for that. As a matter of fact it was your article that was published elsewhere that had me decide that this is the .22 rifle that I was going to purchase.

Great read. I have my fathers M94 in .32 spl., my first deer rifle, M94 in 30-30, and now I want a .22. The wife has a Henry, which is fun to shoot, but it is not a Winchester.

I look forward to reading your articles in the Dillon Press magazine . Of course it would be better if they were all S&W related , but can't have everything .

I have a 1978 9422 XTR with a gloss finished stock. They were not checkered that first year.

The 9422 Trapper dating to around 2000 and it's not an XTR ( but all of them were checkered at that time.)

Default Good article

Like many posters I enjoyed the article too.
I bought my mdl 9422 in 1972. If I remember correctly I had to finance it and pay it off in 6 monthly payments. I don't remember the total price.
On the barrel of it "Made in New Haven, Conn. U.S.A. I like that.

I bought a 9422 in Plattsburgh, NY in 1972 when I was stationed at air base. I paid more than $100 but less than $105 for the rifle with 8% sales tax. My rifle could be disassembled, but the barrel did not separate from the receiver. My rifle had vertical stringing of the group if I fired more than 34 LR rounds. Shots #5 to #15 at 50 yards were under 3/4" . I sold the rifle in the mid-1980s.

I also have a 9422 Legacy, that pays homage to the Model 64, although it's still a carbine pattern and doesn't have a half magazine.

It's the only Model 9422 that I like with a scope on it.

You said "the only .22 magnum lever gun made at the time." What about the Marlin 1894M? BTW I have a 9422 from 1973 and a Marlin 1894M.

Great article!

There was a lever action 22 magnum that had been around since 1959 and it was the Marlin 57M. It was discontinued 2-3 years before the 9422 made its appearance.
