Looking for info on the 9422 boy scouts of America.   I came across 2 of the commemoratives with original boxes all the paper work and never fired.  They are like new in box.  The crazy thing is they are consecutive serial numbers.  My guess is $2500 apiece but don’t know how much more sold together.  Anyone have any experience?  Brock

Brock-

We have a few commemorative collectors but I’ve been following the Boy Scout and Eagle Scout 9422. They do seem to be moving in that direction but wasn’t aware they had arrived there yet. Tough call on the consecutive numbers. If I was selling it would be a major enhancement but as a buyer maybe not so much.

As a Former Eagle scout when I was a kid these dog gone things enticed me. So much so I presented my nephew in Texas with an Eagle scout rifle when he made it at his Ceremony. He is currently a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army. In 1985,(Boy Scout’s 75 th. yr. anniversary), The Eagle,(1000 mfg.), and Boy scout,(15,000 mfg.), we’re Commemorated. The Eagle scout rifle has a a Triple Gold Etching on it where the Boy scout rifle has grey pewter like finish on it. Both rifles are of the Winchester Model 1894 in .22 Long Rifle caliber designated 9422 with XTR style checkering. Both are Roll engraved with the same Boy scout Motto and the only Differences being the Finish, serialization not being coincidental, designation of Eagle vs. Boy Scout, and the Eagle came with a Walnut display case blue velvet lined, with a Crystal Medallion included in the Case. Both came in the Styrofoam box with a detailed Boy scout picture scene of Baden Powell the Fore Father of Scouting. Both had a medallion into the checkered semi Deluxe stock on the right side. Neither one of these we’re sold as consecutive unless it was purchased by a dealer by choice or chance. I checked into this extensively years ago as I was able to put together matching serial numbers with the Eagle and Boy Scout Rifles. Issue price was $495.00 for the Boy Scout, and $1710.00 for the Eagle Scout Rifle. As far as value today we all know it’s worth what someone will pay. They both seem to steadily increase in value as does the other so called commemorative’s with these meaning something to past Scout’s. At $2500.00 apiece for consecutive priced Boy Scout Rifles I think that would set a new high for those two together. I would much rather pay the current $1200-$1500 apiece and match them up myself and even at that I would be a little hesitant today because I still have what I need and want in that category. IMHO!
