Tipping the scales at six pounds, just a scant half-pound lighter than the Model 94, made it a perfect entry-level rifle for some lucky son, daughter, or grandchild. And fittingly, like the 94, it was initially designed as a basic working gun. In 1980, checkering was added to the previously plain black walnut stocks, but from there on, the 9422 was a different lever-action entirely. 22 version boasted side ejection and a solid-top receiver grooved to accept scope mounts. 22 pump rifles. 22 Shorts.
Finally, the trigger guard was rounded, thus losing the Dragoon’s last vestige of its Walker heritage. The Third Model was produced until 1861, but Colt’s Dragoons continued to see action throughout the War Between the States and during the western expansion, when many were converted to cartridges. In addition, some Dragoons were factory cut for shoulder stocks, and a number of presentation guns were engraved by such notables as Gustave Young. Of the 22,000 Dragoons produced during its 13-year lifespan, approximately 10,000 were purchased by the government.
One of the most notable was the Annie Oakley Commemorative in 1983, which featured fancy walnut stocks and a gold-plated and engraved receiver with a portrait of “Little Sure Shot,” as Sitting Bull called her, on the right side of the receiver. The lever and barrel bands were gold-plated as well. Another unique offering was a special Boy Scout Commemorative 9422 carbine with French Grey receiver, lever, and barrel bands, issued in 1985. An even rarer Eagle Scout Limited Edition rifle was offered that same year, featuring an engraved and gold-plated receiver with a special Eagle Scout medallion stock inset.
