Default Nylon 66 .. anyone else have one ?

I just simply love my Nylons..
Don't think you could buy a better .22 rifle.
So wish Remington would bring them back !

Years ago an acquaintance decided to disassymbl his and clean it.
He brought it to me in a paper sack. I looked in the sack, and handed it back to him.
Never heard if he got it reasymboled.

I've heard of people doing that .
I've never taken any of mine down past the bolt.
That's as far as you should go.

Have had three, but let them all go and went to Ruger 10-22s.

I see tables full of them at Gun shows but not cheap any where from 400 to 600 but no one buying them. When we had them at the gun store I worked at no one wonted them.

I've seen stocks warp badly when left in hot cars, or pickups, but I've always heard they were reliable, and self cleaning.
They are ridiculously light weight.

In 1965, while serving in Germany, I went to the post rod & gun club to get a new .22 rifle.

They had 3 new models on hand..the Nylon 66, a Colt western style auto (Stagecoach?) and the newly introduced Ruger 10/22.

After a close lookover, I decided on the Ruger...and I am happy I did !

I know some are very loyal to the Nylon 66, and understand they are.

Hey, it could be worse..they could be infatuated with the Remington Viper !

My brother-in-law had one for over 30 years and never cleaned it. It still worked great.

They're a great gun but have become way overpriced.

If you run across one of the South American branded guns you can save a lot of money and it's the same gun. Made on original Remington tooling in South America. Can't remember the brand name now, but the company was once owned by Remington and after REmington quit making the 66 the tooling was sent down there.

Correction:! The copy was made by CBC in Brazil, which was partly owned by Dupont, as was Remington also.

It was imported by FIE, Magtech, Kassnar, and Century Arms.

My first though after reading the OP was that they are nice rifles....just don't ever take one apart.

I have an Apache Black/ Chrome model that once belonged to my father in law. Black and chrome belongs on motorcycles not guns.

This one has worked flawlessly for 40 years! I have no intention of every taking it apart. I squirt break cleaner in it's ear holes once in awhile and the big hunks drip out it's mouth. So far so good!

They are for the most part a maintenance free rifle and I'm guessing a lot of them are taken a part because of tinkeritis rather than because they needed to come apart.
