Unlesss you have a need to play out your John Wayne fantasies, save your dough and buy a less limited weapon.

I see them for as little as $100 at gun shows, but that is about 100 times what I would pay.

What caliber ?

After looking on the internet I see there are many variations.

It's a .30-30 He will give me the serial # and more info next week. I'll poke around some more then.
Thanks!

For the run of the mill post 64(under 2,700,000 serial number) 1894 in .30-30 don't pay more than $150.00. For pre 64 or pre war (WWII) the price goes up. The Winchester lever actions are the original "Assault Weapon". Light, fast fireing, accurate, good stopping power, reliable and a decent ammunition capacity. When all the "evil" semi autos and rifles with military features are gone "sporting" rifles will be all that's left. If you can get it for under $150.00 buy it. They go just over $200.00 new for the Ranger(budget) model in .30-30. The .30-30 is similar to the 7.62x39mm in performance.

That may be true, but it depends on the caliber and model, year etc. SOme of these can be quite collectable.

Less limited weapon you say? Maybe it rounds out his collection.

Don't be so pig headed

Does anyone have a Winchester 9422? I have been looking at one for the last few months for $329 that has a deluxe checkered walnut stock. I haven't ever fired one, but they look to be a fine weapon. Any advice on the 9422 would be appreciated.

The 9422 is a fine rifle. Fit and finish on them is very good and they are a blast to shoot. Accurate and ammo is cheap.

Good for him, but there are plenty of other weapons that can do everything a 30/30 can do and more. There is no rational reason to own a 30/30 except if you are broke, but, as I pointed out, there may be irrational reasons for owning one. And that is fine with me.

Don't be so pig headed

Sorry, I am going to ignore your advice and continue to express my opinions. But I do appreciate you attacking me personally rather than just my opinion. That is definately the best way to get your point across.

You guys are psychic...psycho?...psychic, yeah. I'm sitting here running a silicone rag over my Rossi imitation '94 and this pops up.

It's simply a fun rifle. The Original Assault Weapon name might be right. 94's are scaled-down 1892's which are full-sized lever actions. My Rossi is a 16 inch short-barrel carbine with the Hollywood loop-lever. It's chambered for .45 Long Colt. If memory serves they also originally came chambered for .38-40 and .44-40 and then came a lot of other calibers.

I guess there are similarities to an AR but these days a '94 is a nineteenth century toy. But it's FUN to shoot!

Maybe after all semi-auto's are outlawed it'll have more relevancy.

You can find out year it was made.

I have 2 Win 94 30-30's, and they are some of the best rifles to own. If you need one for defense, you may appear better in court to a jury than with a modern assault rifle. Brass and components are everywhere's, and a well-practiced shooter can fire a lever action rifle as accurately and as fast as one with a semi-auto. The magazine can be topped off as you go, something you would have to remove the magazine for in a semi auto. Plus, there's that nostalgic feel that you just can't get with the modern rifles. The lever actions have been there and done that, and it says something that they've been in production for as long as they have. If you can get a good one, mount a good receiver peep sight on it and you've got an excellent rifle.

I have a Winchester 9422 XTR. The last XTR's were made in 86 I believe. It is a beautiful rifle. My advice is get one. Not the .22 magnum. The 9422 will shoot .22 shorts, longs and long rifles. The deluxe model is really nice but put one next to an XTR and you'll wish you had the XTR. It's a shame they don't make that model anymore.
