I gave a 9422 Delux and a 9422 Mag to my cousins and still have one plain Jane 9422. The guns operate smoother than a 39 but accuracy is probably about the same. My remaining rifle shoots as well as a Walther bolt action that I have. Both those guns seem a bit limited by their sights. The Winchester gives flawless feeding, extraction and ejection and has a decent trigger pull out of the box.
