This makes 3. Not bad for a buck 75.

Looks like it is great shape. Have you taken it to the range yet?

You'll shoot your toe off with that thing!

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.

drizzle 08-23-2012 08:11

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 for about $21 I think. I also have a 10C, it uses mags (got it for $30 :supergrin: )

Here's the 10C (part of it anyway).

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

sigman69 08-26-2012 01:38

nice, boy those rifles bring back some memories for me...one of the first guns I ever shot.
