     Ran into a model 55 .22 today.  Winchester only made around 45,000 of these.  Are they collectable at all?  Its a cheap made rifle but not sure if there is any collectability to them.

     Also I have a 9422 that is unshot and with the hang tag still on it.  Does anyone have a guess as to how many 9422’s unshot out there with hang tags?  I’m just curious how “rare” it is.  Thank you.

Who wouldn’t want a model 55. A semi auto single shot. I believe a must have for every Winchester single shot 22 collector. They will never be a high dollar gun as it’s hard to make a collection of one.

As to the 9422 I have no idea.

Have a great day

Couple years ago, I bought one advertised on the Rimfire Forum. $300 shipped and the rifle was near mint. The problem they have with these is the plastic part breaking, so I don’t shoot mine. It just sits in a rifle rack in my Man Cave. Very unique rifle.

Unfired M94-22’s are a dime a dozen. Many of them out there. Price value of these depends on the scarcity of any given model. I have a Trapper Model and would never consider selling or trading it away. They are a splendid rifle.     Big Larry

I bought a model 55 single shot- semi auto from a WACA member at one of the Reno show. Beautiful finished unique rifle. Shot it a few times, caught a hot brass or two in my palm ✋. Now it sits on display with other Winchester semi’s. Unique is the best quality of the 55.

I can’t identify different species of wood, but I like the figure in my 55 funiture.

I must get my camera working. Phone photos are terrible. I have lighter photo of wood but will not upload.

Surprising that cherry would be cheaper than low-grade walnut.

I have owned, and still own several of these little rifles, including a mint NIB example with all packing and paperwork. It has been my experience that the stocks on the early versions were stained very dark, and resemble a plain grain walnut, while the late rifles (possibly parts clean up guns) are not stained and consequently are very light in color.
