Very good deal for $175.

As a kid, I decided to detail strip my father's 66.....three words of advice....don't do it!

A nylon 66 is the only gun I've had to take to a gunsmith to put back together after I took it apart.

I had a Marlin Golden 39A, my buddies all had the 66. This was long ago when I was 9 years old.

Same here...after charging me $10 (a chunk of change for a 14-year old in 1978), the gunsmith said to me,
"Kid, don't ever do that again."

They are such nice looking guns. I remember looking through my old man's Remington catalogue and hoping that I would own one in Black (Apache Black?).

Most guys buy hot rods in their midlife crisis. That would be my midlife crisis gun.

I owned the model with a magazine when I was only 16. It shot great but did not like CCI stingers.

For some reason mine will always jam on the second shot (the first the feed system sends to the chamber after manually loading the first shell from the tube) unless I load one less than full, jack the bolt, and top it off. Then it works fine. Can't figure out why, but it works fine otherwise, so I put up with it.

I picked up this beater around Jan of 12 I think, for $125 +tax. Some gouges and no front sight. Put an old 4x15 scope on it then got a front sight and screws (no washers but worked w/o them) from Bob's Gun Shop (www.gun-parts.com) for about $21 I think. I also have a 10C, it uses mags (got it for $30 :supergrin: )

ETA: The 66 is, I think around a 1964 model, no serial number.

My very first rifle. Not sure when purchased. I think I was 16, around 1961 or so.

I just finished blueing my dads nylon, it had rust all over and it was no longer functioning. I took it to the gunsmith to see what it needed and I did the paint job I'm going to hand it to my pops tomorrow. He doesn't even know I have it.it was his childhood .22 he even killed deer with it back in the day.

I bought mine around 1972 for apx $75.00 NIB. A lot of Woodchucks lives have ended,Because of my nylon 66 (Apache Black ) model & the CCI stinger ammo. My only gripe with this gun is mounting a Scope on it is next to impossible? Due to the receivers groove on top of it.? A scope ring & base does not hold solid enough to stay on the gun,Without moving around a lot.? So I use it only with the open sights on it with good results out to 100 yds.

I went to a gun show recently and the asking prices for Nylon 66s, in OK condition, (I cannot be more specific as I did not waste my time with close examinations) were between $375 and $450. I was shocked.

That's just like mine. I bought mine at a little General
Store in East TN in 1964. It's had I don't know how many
thousands of rounds thru it and still runs like a swiss
watch. Eats any ammo you put in it and has never
hicupped. Spent 2 weeks at the bottom af Obed River
when the Game Warden caught me on the wrong side
of the river and I jumped off a bluff into the river to get
away. Took me 2 weeks to find it. My daughter has it
now. She always liked the space age style growing up
and when she got married and moved out, it went with
her. It'll go to my grand kid when she ever slows down
enough to have one.:whistling:

Can I play?

I don't have all of them but I have quite a few. So many in fact that I started www.nylonrifles.com a few years ago to gather info. I have all the assembly/disassembly manual direction online and well as a bunch of other info. The website has been down for 6 or 7 months due to a virus attack. Just got it back up this week. There is also a forum. I also write about other stuff on the main page but the purpose of nylonrifles.com was to document everything about nylon rifles. Enjoy.

Here are just a couple of mine...

Great site mac66. I watched your disassemble/reassemble videos and cleaned up both of my Nylons back when I picked up my latest. I think I found Bob's in your forum too.

Those videos rock. I have never taken the trigger assembly apart cause heck the rest of the rifle was hard enough to put together.

Gee, of the 30 or so nylon rifles I have, not one cost me more than $100. If you can get $500 a piece for yours let me know who you are selling them too.:supergrin: I would like to cash in on some of mine as well.

Putting them back together is tricky which is why we have field service manuals and assembly and disassembly guides on the website. We also have a video on how to do it.

:cool: ..I had one of the black Apache models with the chrome barrel and reciever. It was tube fed from the rear of the stock. It ws a heck of a gun and had it for many years. But when I don't use one of my guns in some time, I sell it and get something else. I sold it to a good friend and have been trying to buy it back for the past 4 years. Bummer!

This is my latest .22 Ruger

Has anyone figured out a simple repair for the rear sight when the elevation screw is stripped?

I am kicking myself for having my choice of 1/2 dozen at a big guns shop at a ridiculous low price and I only bought one.

I am trying to get a manufacture date on it because I suspect it is a first year and since I was born that year and in the middle of that worlds record shooting event with the Nylon, I'd like to verify it.

The date is a two letter code located on the barrel in front of the rear sight on the left side. First letter is the month, second is the year.

Here is a link to how to date them....

Could be an early first year rifle, pretty nice. Does it had a thumb screw type windage knob or a tiny little slotted screw? The big head screw is on early rifles. The small head was introduced 1964ish.
