The stevens model 82 was made by stevens between 1936-1937.there was a total production of 35,500 guns made during that time span.
I found the J.Stevens model 87A 22 semi auto rifle to be approximately 82 years old hope this helps -------Vandy
subtract 18 from 100=82. 1982
77-82. what you listed is not the serial number.
According to other internet sources, the J Stevens company made the Model 82 from 1935 to 1939 only. My sample is amazingly accurate with Eley Match .22 long rifle ammunition. It only weighs 4-1/2 lbs and just feels right in the hands. - CW

Possible misread of 32 Long. There is no 82 caliber firearm.
