A 9422 magnum just came into my possession. I’ve got a few Marlin lever actions, but this is my first Winchester. The magazine feed tube is loose, and doesn’t lock in when twisted. Is this normal when it’s empty?  I know on the Marlins, the spring plunger on the end gives enough resistance to keep it secure.  

Also, the spot where the bullet loads looks cone shaped. Is that normal?

Thanks for any info.

Unfortunately I think that is the case. Mine was the same way. I put a small O ring on it which solved the problem.

 Had the same trouble with my 9422.Lost the tube twice,but was lucky enough to find it both times.Fixed the problem by putting a few twists of tape on the magazine tube so that it will fit snug.

I have not had the problem but have heard if you slide an appropriate sized “o” ring onto the inner tube it puts enough tension in the system to secure it nicely.  I don’t recall the size but you can probably experiment (or do a search over on RimfireCentral) for the exact size.

Were you out of bailing wire?  If you grew up on a farm as I did, it was seldom out of reach.

On mine i bent the outer mag tube’s end where the inner tube locks in. i used a pair of needle nose pliers to put a small bend in it to put some tension on the inner tube.
