M9422 receiver



Log in to see fewer ads
In 1964 Winchester went to iron receivers for their M94. Did they utilize the same iron-type receiver in the M9422?

I ask because a cousin bought a 9422 with a partially sanded (!) receiver, and is wanting to know how difficult it would be to get a decent blue job back on it.

Not AFAIK............…



BTW, Winchester went back to forged steel receivers on the Model 94 in 1982, with the introduction of the Model 94AE (angle-eject).

I'm fairly sure Winchester used machined steel receivers on the M9422, as on the Super X Model 1 shotgun. Both were made with state of the art CAD-CAM technology and were some of the few bright spots in the otherwise dismal 1970s. The receivers should take conventional bluing quite well. I wouldn't recommend a very high polish. It just wouldn't look right on these.

The worst years for the Model 94 was the post 1964 era that used sintered steel which didn’t take bluing well.


The 9422 came out later with quality steel machined receivers that should take bluing real well.

I agree with not going to too high of polish for the bluing.

I have a near mint 2004 produced 9422, the receiver is polished to a just off mirror finish. BTW, it's action is every bit as smooth as my similar condition pre-war Marlin 39a, perhaps just a bit smoother.

It's true that the later ones with the XTR finish did have a higher polish than the earlier models, but even these did not have the super high polish. So, I guess it depends on when it was made, but the main thing is to make sure whoever does the bluing is a true professional who will avoid the mistakes of dished screw holes, rounded corners and wavy flat surfaces. I would steer clear of anyone who uses a polishing wheel. The best way is to take one's time and do it by hand using backer boards. I really hate seeing less than professional bluing jobs.

The post '64 Winchester 94's did have some weird cast steel receiver and cheaper internal components, but they sure do shoot great.

I just picked up a new in box 1967 94 Classic with a 26" octagon barrel. It shoots 2-3" groups at 200 meters. Added bonus is it has some of the most beautiful wood you'll find on any Winchester rifle.
