win 94-22 prices out of hand



Log in to see fewer ads
I was at Cabela's yesterday and they had a 94-22 XTR in the glass display case for $1499.00. Dang I remember paying around 2 hundred and 20 dollars when I bought mine in 1989. I took it to a woodlot and promptly shot my limit of 5 squirrels and 1 crow. Remember like it was yesterday. Although a little worn I still have the gun. Ah those were the days- classic 22's 2 hundred and some change.-Locoman

The market sets the price, simple as that.

Good for owners and sellers....unfortunate for someone wanting to acquire one. I purchased my 9422 Trapper model in December of 1999 for the modest amount of $290.....new. No that's not a misprint.....$290 bucks. And I watch the value go up and up. Love the little rifle but I sure would not want to be in the market to purchase one today.

They probably won't get that pie in the sky price.

I've been thinking the opposite lately. I was always impressed with the 9422, but thought the average price was well beyond what one would be worth to me. Several months ago stumbled onto an older model that I'll admit was a great deal, but last month bought another in mint condition from my local Cabelas for $600. Not cheap, but a beautiful rifle that I really like. Both likely to make grandkids very happy someday.

My friend at Cabelas said he has been able to buy them at much better prices lately. They have one right now for $695 in like new condition. Maybe not impressive to those of you who bought them at original $, but I'm pleased.

It's funny I just bought a decent 1954 Marlin 39A for $299 from the used rack at Gander Mountain. I've been looking for a 9422 for years around here and almost never see them. I finally found a boy scout commemorative 9422 for $450 with no box or papers at the same Gander a few months ago. I hope whoever does the used gun pricing there sticks around. 39A's I've seen 4 or 5 in the last couple years for about $500 give or take at local gun shows.

It's simply "Supply and Demand" at work, they aren't making anymore and shooters/collectors fond them desirable. A long time Winchester collector told they stopped making them because they became to expensive to produce. That plus the fact that WInchester no longer exist as the company we once knew. Now they are just a name brand being made by FN with many if not all the lever actions being made in Japan.
I seen NIB examples routinely go for more than 1K and I believe prices will continue to rise.

Cabela's gun Library is always 20-50% more than anybody else for any firearm which they think is "special"?

Yes, they're going up and harder to find. I paid $675 for mine in July.

I have been to Cabelas in Wheeling once and really feel sorry for anyone paying their outrageous prices.

Why should I pay for their 'stuffed animals"
