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.

The lack of the roll stamp at the time is it was an 82A action, not a 82B. The idea was to use up some of the A actions they had left over after they had switched production to the B.
