9422 Purchase



Log in to see fewer ads
Just bought Serial Number F25690A--plain 20 inch 22LR caliber. I presume that means 1972 manufacture. What does the "A" mean?

You are correct. It is a ď4Ē.

I am looking at a 9422 (S/L/LR) no chequering, with a serial number starting F209xxx . Interestingly it has a threaded barrel for a moderator, not sure if this is normal? Would anyone have an idea on its manufacture date and the model?

According to the chart at the beginning of this thread, it was made in 1972. I don't believe Winchester threaded their barrels on any of the 94's back then, as this was meant to be more of a traditional style gun. Myself, a threaded barrel would be a detraction on this gun, and if you're in negotiation to buy it, you can use that point to bargain for a lower price.

Interesting, I thought the list on the First thread would indicate it might be 1974? It has a 6 digit SN.

Regarding the muzzle I am only looking at it from a few photos, which seems to indicate it has a thread cap on the muzzle. Was this offered as standard? Could This apparent thread cap be something else?

It certainly appears to be threaded. That's a thread protector on the muzzle. As I said though, I don't believe that was standard on any of the older 94's. The best way to confirm is to contact the seller.

So far the seller (who is the second owner) was able to confirm that it is threaded. I have asked for more information.

It is interesting though that the barrel is longer than the loading tube essentially for the length of the thread protector. I don’t know much about threading the muzzle, but would this not mean that a longer Bassetlaw would be needed right from the start? The 94/22 Barrel length is flush with the mag tube in most photos, so if one was to thread the original, it would/should be the same length as the mag tube? Unless... there is some way of extending the barrel with attaching the thread?

The thread protector on it's own probably gives that appearance, but I doubt the barrel is longer than stock. Ask the seller for a picture without the thread protector.

It looks like it’s a decent job...

I can’t tell whether it’s been cut from original barrel or somehow threaded into original barrel, although I can’t imagine the latter would be ballistically sound? If it has been cut from original it would indicate the barrel is longer than the magazine, which would be unusual?

Any number of things could have been done, from rebarreling, shortening the magazine tube, to threading the piece into the end of the barrel. If it were me, I probably wouldn't buy a 94 with a threaded barrel unless it was inexpensive enough.
If you can see yourself putting a silencer on a cowboy style lever gun, this may be for you. I can tell you it would most likely interfere with extracting the magazine tube if you did.
Mind if I ask the price?

You are totally right! Have not thought about the interference with the magazine plunger!

I ended up disengaging from the purchase. Thank you for the advice.

You're welcome. Just trying to throw a little logic out there.
Now if you were looking for a quiet squirrel gun, taking the silencer off to reload every 10 rounds would not be a big deal.
