Beater 9422 worth it?



Log in to see fewer ads
I looked at an older 9422 today at a local shop. The rifle had been in a flood at some point in the past and not cleaned and as a result all of the steel parts have some light pitting. The bore is good and the action is smooth as silk. The wood is ok. Overall, I guess it is a bit rough. Is it worth $300? I like to shoot and this would probably ride around in the back seat of the truck so the condition doesnt bother me too much.

That may be a little high for the condition that it is in. I would offer less and see if you can get it for $250 OTD.

He moved from $350 to this, wont go any lower and still wants to add tax. Ive tried for awhile to do business with this guy because he gets some nice stuff but always just a bit too high for me.

Beater 9422

I would say that the rifle is worth the price if it is a rifle that you want to keep forever for your personal use. Just be aware that it will probably never be worth much more than you are paying for it. Still, getting a good solid 9422 with just some cosmetic issues for $300.00 is better than buying a brand new lesser rifle in my opinion if you just want the rifle to use for hunting or use around the farm. You would have a top quality rifle that you don't have to worry about so much. Just use it and enjoy it. Just my .02

The problem is that the cleaner guns are in such demand and bringing so much. I would say you may not find one cheaper in good running condition. But you have to be the final judge of what it's worth....you are the only one who can decide if cosmetic flaws are going to bug you that much. If it's just a truck gun, why go for an expensive mint one?

For $100 more you could probably get an excellent condition, older, Marlin 39A. It is just as good and they seem to sell for less.

With the prices of decent 9422s continuing to climb, $300 for a working rifle will be hard to beat. Besides, you'll never have to worry about dinging it up or scratching it.

Don't forget to post some pics once you get it!

My 9422 is slightly pitted also. Bought new in 1975. I was a kid and it was common to leave in the pickup (Buffalo sub-zero Winters and all) or stow on the tractor.

On the farm, that gun was always close by. Still shoots like new and it's my prized piece to this day. I'm a little biased, but $300 sounds cheap!

If you get it, let's see some photos!

My 9422 doesn't have a bit of bluing left on it.Looks like it may have gotten some surface rust on it then someone took steel wool to it.Inside is as clean as it gets.Wood needs refinished also.Price was 200 bucks from my now deceased grandpa.Wouldn't take 400 bucks for it!Also i can't hit the broadside of a barn with it either,with the iron sights.
