Model Features

You can be proud of the Model 9422 in every way. The Model 9422 possesses classic lever action styling like no other 22 you can own. No other rifle has a feel and function that so closely emulates the famous Winchester lever actions of the last century. Its speed of handling combines with its top rimfire accuracy to make it the best choice — whether you are looking for a great plinking rifle or doing some serious small game hunting.

A hammer extension is provided with your Model 9422. This makes cocking the hammer convenient, even when using a scope.

The receiver top is grooved to easily accept rimfire-type scope bases. When your 9422 is taken down, the scope stays attached to the barrel half to preserve

Sights are made to handle rough conditions. Front and rear sights are drift adjustable for windage. The rear sight also features an elevator system for quick elevation changes, plus the sight blade can be adjusted for small changes with screw-type sight blade attachment.

The authentic look of the Model 9422 isn't just for fun. The Model 9422's lever action design with tubular magazine is reliable and fast handling.

The tubular magazine design with tube-mounted loading port makes loading easy for any hands, young or old.

The quick take-down feature allows you to easily disassemble your Model 9422 into two halves. A single screw on the left side of the receiver is all it takes. It makes it easy to clean and oil your rifle, plus it allows cleaning of the muzzle from the breech end, protecting the crown of the barrel so you don't risk affecting accuracy.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Your new Model 9422 is one of several different versions and configurations offered. The basic operating procedures are the same for all of them. Where there are differences they are pointed out in this booklet for your convenience.

The Model 9422 is a lever action design that allows the shooter to load a round by cycling the action and moving a cartridge from a loaded magazine tube to the chamber. After firing, working the finger lever ejects the empty cartridge out the ejection port to the right. Returning the finger lever upward cycles a new cartridge from the magazine into the chamber. This can be repeated until the magazine is empty. The basic function and the classic looks are much like that experienced by hunters, trappers, farmers and sportsmen with their Model 94 centerfire rifles.

TERMINOLOGY AND DESCRIPTIONS

Descriptions in this booklet generally refer to the gun in the horizontal position. That is, in the normal firing position. For example, the muzzle is forward or front; the butt stock is rearward or rear; the trigger is downward or underneath; the sight is upward or on top.

Figure 1 covers the general features and benefits of the Model 9422 design. For general parts terminology, refer to Figures 2A through 2C.

The Winchester Model 9422 is also shown disassembled to the extent necessary in order to follow instructions contained in this book (see Figure 9 later in this manual). Throughout this manual the "action" refers to the mechanism of this rifle which loads and secures the cartridges in the chamber.

serial number_

The serial number is located in two places on your Model 9422: one on each half when disassembled (see Figure 3). One is on the bottom of the forward receiver/frame assembly (barrel half of the rifle) toward the front. The other is just rearward of the first one, on the rear receiver/frame assembly (buttstock half of the rifle). Record the serial number at the front of this book for future reference.
