I have a 9422, serial number f22xx. It doesn’t have the checkering on the stock or forward grip. Are these original stocks or have they been replaced?

More than likely the stocks are original. Winchester made them with and without checkering.

 To the best of my knowledge the earlier 20 inch barrel rifles had no checkering ,while later 20 inch barrel rifles had checkering.My early Model 9422 20 inch barrel rifle has no checkering.

 

 For the 22 1/2 inch rifles, the early “classic”,made for only two years was not checkered,while the later version called the “legacy” was checkered.Again this is to the best of my knowledge.

My 9422 Mag was made in 1973 (purchased new in 1974), has semi fancy wood but no checkering.

Correct. Early guns had no checkering. My first year 22mag has a beautiful non checkered stock.

One of my rifles sn 

F2160*5

 

was manufactured in 1975 and the original stock was not checkered. As part of the engraving project on this rifle I upgraded the stocks with wood I purchased form the custom shop in 2005 just a few weeks before Winchester announced that they were closing there New Haven, Ct factory. I let the gun maker keep the stock and he sold it on ebay or gunbroker for around 170.00. I was glad he got a good price for it, it eased my conscious a little,  When I got the rifle back I felt I had under paid Jim for the workmanship he put into my rifle. This rifle was updated in 2008. In October I will display this rifle and three others at the WACA event 10/2017 in Massachusetts . It will be my first display, if you see someone there who looks like he doesn’t know what he is doing it might be me.

Stop by and have a look, this brace of rifles is the effort of 16 years planning, saving and spending to make this display.
