KKJ stands for Kleinkaliber Jagd, KKM for Kleinkaliber Match. Both had a similiar zinc alloy front sight base in the first years, the KKJ kept that. That front sight base was basically developed out of the front sight base of the LP53, using the same front sight posts.

Resurrecting this old thread is kind of a blast from the past for me. Has it really been 11 years?! I appreciate the kind comments.

I re-read it and would stand by my observations still. I do have a 52 C sporter now, and the 24" barreled KKJ was replaced by a 22" .22 WMR, but all else the same; DST, crossbolt safety in stock, etc. I would say the feel and handling in the field of the KKJ is the best of any .22 sporter I've owned, but nothing stirs my soul like a 52 Sporting, even though it weights more than a pound more.

Awesome article and comparison.
And, to me, you made the case in favor of the 52.

Nice write-up indeed, and thanks to whomever bump-it-up... as I had missed it initially

To me, one big advantage of the 52 over the KKJ is the availability (and price) or spare magazines. For a reason or another, I need at least 5 magazines per rifle (and more is always better)

For some reason I missed the original write up and am glad I had the opportunity to finally read it. Very well written, but what I would expect from TBR....

Now about the possibility of a Winchester 52 vs Anschutz 54 writeup....

Thanks for a very complete, excellent comparison by TEDDY BEAR RAT to start this thread.
I currently have a KKJ but have only previously had the Japanese copies of the Winchester 52 sporters ( made by Miroku I believe ). All great rifles.
I will be selling the KKJ soon only because I prefer several other sporters a little more. Probably my most favorite is a Mauser MN410B for which I'm having a custom stock made.
So, TBR, how well do you think the MN410B ( I think you also may have one ) would compare to a Win. 52???
