Another oldie but goodie.

I put this one on layaway a couple of months ago, and picked it up today. It's got a couple of very small scratches, but otherwise, looks like new. I knew when I put it on layaway that it was fairly old, since it didn't have a serial number (Pre '1968). From some limited research, it appears to have been made in September, 1960, or the second year of production. Another of those rifles I used to drool over in Outdoor Life magazine, and at the Sears store.

Remington Nylon 66. Mowhawk brown.

Nice! Brown even!

I wish I could find a Nylon. . . . But I hate to think about what it would cost!

A few months ago I found a Apache in the work building of a church member. It was covered with untold years of collected filth. I loaded it full of equally dirty .22 LR ammo and stepped outside to see how it would run. Fifteen rounds later... I had my answer. It not only ran fine, it shot accurately. Good rifle. Shame Remington no longer makes it.

It is Bruce, but they don't only because the tooling simply wore out and it would have cost too much to replace it.

Not that long ago, they were mostly unwanted $50 to $75 rifles at the gun shows. Glad I picked a couple up, I spent my ute with a 10/22, but had a friend with a Nylon 10. I always enjoyed shooting it.

Ain't nothing like taking one all the way apart and trying to put it together for the first time without some documentation. Unless your mind works like John Browning's.

Some stories have a sad ending. I cleaned the rifle Saturday evening, and noticed a "drag" on the cleaning patch at one point in the barrel. I looked and saw something that I hadn't seen at the shop (the bore was dirty). Thinking/hoping it was lead I got the brass brush out. No help. I ran my fingers over the barrel. Sure enough I felt a slight "bulge" in the barrel just behind the front sight. DRAT!.

The store has signs behind the counter saying "All firearms sales are final." It's also on the bottom of their receipt. Oh well. Nothing to lose by asking, so I took it back Sunday evening, and told them what I found. They asked if I had the gun with me...Yes?...Go get it. The fellow ran his finger over the barrel..."Yep...there's a bulge. You just want your money back?" I told them I'd just take a store credit. I was sure I'd find something.

So a good ending after all. Shame about the rifle. I don't know if it would have hurt anything or not. I didn't want to shoot it until I found out if they'd take it back or not, and when they did it didn't matter.

I was given one (all black with a whit diamond) a few years ago and it still has the Dupont sticker on the stock. Shoots great also.

Those nylon 66 rifles are pretty cool. Wish I would have kept mine when I was a kid.

These have become very collectible lately. I still remember when they sat in the case for ages at the local KMart, wish I would have bought a couple.

Another example of "collectors" mucking up the used gun market with more money then sense when it comes to old or out of production guns that would other wise become someone's inexpensive shooter.

I myself was wanting one of the old Colt S/A 22 revolvers to start training a couple of grandsons with and if lucky you can find a nice in the $600 range.

Just found a nice used but unfired model with original Rosewood grips for $475 and I am having trouble coming to grips with the price even though it's actually a good buy in todays market.

Collectors are the bane of us shooters.

Always wanted one of those in black!

I do have a Nylon 77 (detachable magazine version) in "well used" condition.



Interesting info. here:

Well, if you can find a Marlin 7000 in good shape, it'll be a treasure just as soon as the collectors find out how much shooters will pay for one. I have 200 in mine, and would pay 300 without flinching for another one.. and I'm a real tightwad. I'd guess a $400 asking price currently, & 500 in another year.

A gun that'll put 50 rounds in a 2 inch circle @ 50 yards, and 9 out of 10 in a 2 cm circle.. probably needs a better shooter than me to wring it out.

Real good gun, and it eats 10/22's, when accuracy matters. Takes 15 rnd aftermarket mags, 10 round factory & 7 round factory. Integral 3/8 mount and no iron sights, 18" bull barrel, synthetic stock.

lIt's on my 'keeper' list, ie Two is One.. and I'll buy a handul of mags as soon as I know I've bought the right gun.
