Shorter forend with Schnabel and shorter barrel. Barrel may be slimmer also?

The forearm checkering also used the “Cadet” stock inverted diamond panels like you find on the Blue Mountain Classic. I never understood why the Mini-Classics did not feature a roll-stamped “Mini-Classic” on the receiver since the original plan was to make 700 of them; although actual production numbers were much less. The lack of a model roll stamp is particularly confusing since the Blue Mountain Classics which numbered around 100, had the roll stamp.

The Hushkaboom sunny day rifle appears to be in very fine condition and is WELL WORTH a serious look. The guns balance very well in the field with a compact scope and also seem fit juniors and women nicely.

KoO 82 Mini

Yes, the Mini is easy to handle and fun to shoot This one is in super nice condition and bargain priced. If I didn't already have one I'd be on this one in a heartbeat.

I have physically handled this rifle and it's in great shape. As an aside, my experience with the shorter barreled 82's is that they shoot exceptionally well.

I had a Blue Mountain Classic, bought new in 1988 -- and foolishly sold it in the late 90s. I may be wrong, but I believe the Blue Mountain Classic was similar to the Mini Classic in weight with a shorter barrel than the Classics and Cascades. Vert, you'd probably know if that's the case.

Yes Doug. You are correct. The BMC has the same Mini Classic dimensions with a slightly shortened Classic stock. It was a part of what Sage and I call the Mini Collection:

Mini Classics (in various configurations including upgraded checkering, cheek pieces and wood grades);

Blue Mountain Classics; and

Cubs (in various configurations such as checkering upgrades and rubber v. steel butt pads)

BTW: Sage flies in Thursday to go with me and Guther to Shawnee. Sage loves shooting your 82 Canyon Creek gun; a sort of semi-custom Mini if you will.

I'm not surprised, Vert. I sometimes kick myself for selling that one too. But I'm glad someone else fully appreciates -- and shoots -- it. And don't you still have the original Cascade stock and barrel?
