I heard that at an auction in Franklin MO there was a Winchester9422 lever action 22. (shot shrts & longs). I ran to check out Gunbroker.com but all they had was the Legacy NIB's, but worth between $600-700. This one was not a Legacy but in pretty good shape with mininmal surface rust..stock had 1 scratch.

I really did'nt have the $$ to spare so I was just going to buy it at a steal then try to turn it & make some quick $$ maybe work a trade .. I quit bidding at $200 (its the week between paychecks).... it was bought for $225.

I'v had a sleepless night thinkingI should of gone to $250 to see how bad the kid wanted it

So someone tell me how much is this thing worth:confused:. I'm not an auction guy (actualy this was my 1st)

My first impression would be YES!

I say this just because Winchester is no longer around. Gun values are sure to go up in the future.

Did you screw up ?" hard to say . They made this gun from 1974 to 2005 .
When Winchester had realised that THEY had screwed up by making junk after 64 , they brought out the 9422 to showcase how they had learned their lesson and chainged their ways . The 9422 is a very good gun and I would love to have one .
I don't think anyone can correctly value an old winchester right now . There is a feeding frinzy going on because of the New Haven plant shutting down . I personaly would have gone to $400.00 if the gun was in good shape and I wanted it . It is a cool gun to lay out on the shooting bench with a bunch of gun nuts around . They get oohs and ahhs . Very high quality .

There are several versions of the 9422 that I found on bluebook... the cheapest one was $285 at 98% condition.
9422 legacy was $325 at 98%
9422 high grade legacy tribute $740 at 98%..

Sounds like 225 was a fairly good deal..

I could give you a big ol hug right now cuz I'd say this was less than a 98% with the scratch & slight surface rust. I wasnt buying it for me just to turn and make some quick $$$. $225 was a good deal for him but it would't of been for me:banana:

I was at an estate auction and watched two brothers bid against each other for "Dads" gun. No one else was bidding. The family was fighting over everything that was left. The gun....Savage model 24 , 22/.410 O/U. It was worth maybe $275 but each brother didn't want the other to have it. I walked away shaking my head when it went over $500. Sad situation. If there are two people really wanting an item the sky is the limit on the price.

I think you said a point that ought to makw you feel ok about not getting it. " the kid" It was not something you had the extra cash to spend on, so might be something you might regtret getting if you won, You let the kid have it, it could be his first gun and a new interest into the sport. Id feel pretty good If I were in your boot. maybe another better buy will befall you for letting thins young man have that browning

You say it sold for $225....but if you had stayed in how much higher would it have gone?? I have yet to see a gun at auction sell for a steal.
