    I have a little Winchester 94 22 mag that I love, it's easily in 95%+ shape with a 3x9 Simmons on it. Last weekend I whipped it out and killed a couple boxes of ammo. Sweet shooting little lever, action smooth as silk. How much would it be worth though? How can I tell if it's pre 64?? The reason I'm wondering is because I have a friend that wants to trade me for a 1909 Winchester 22 pump with a carved stock it's in 85 percent shape with alright bluing. Is this a good trade? I like the older Winchester 22 but I don't know if I want to trade my little 22 mag away.

    I don't know about the value, but I can tell you that it's definitely not pre-'64. Winchester didn't come out with a rimfire Model 94 until the '70s.

    I would keep the 94. The 22 mag is hard to come by and brings a premium. Sold one last year for $700 but it was 99.9%. Would have brought more with the box and papers.

    Everything depends on condition and wheather the gun has been altered in any way. Just because it is old doesn't mean that it is worth a lot of money. Most aren't.

    I understand that, what makes this 22 pump odd is that it has a huge panther on one side of the stock. The owner thinks because of this it is worth a grand

    Have him document it's value, then decide if it's worth that to you. I still wouldn't trade that 9422Mag for it though.

    Nah I've decided to keep my little lever, it shoots far too well to let go. Plus it dosen't even seem to have 100 rounds threw it, the checkering is sharp and there's not a scratch on it. I'm scared to really shoot it too often. I mostly use my marlin 60, win94 30-30, and Stoger 12 gauge for most everything. I call them my "house guns" for work around the house.

    Unless it is a factory carving, or done by some one well known, the pump would not have that great of a value compared to an unmodified example.

    your 9422m is worth between 500 and 800 depending on condition.

    You are probably unaware of the fact that the 94/22 is one of the finest domestically produced leverguns of the last century. It is all milled steel. No castings, no stampings, no plastic, no funky alloys. Slicker than butter on glass and all finely finished blued steel. There are no pre-64 94/22's and it is a completely different design from the 1894/94. That doesn't matter because they're better made than any model 94, no matter which side of 1964 they were made.

    Not a good trade, at all.

    I wouldn't go that far. Get out there and shoot the thing. I've never understood why anyone would own a nice firearm and not enjoy it for fear of getting a ding or scratch. I have a pair of them and they're two of my most-used rifles.

    +1. I have two, one from the late '70s and one from the last years of production -- maybe 2004? I bought it as soon as I heard they were being discontinued. The new one gets shot more often, but I shoot them both. Not my most-used rifles, but I do use them.
