I read once that when the tooling was getting long in tooth at Remington, they sold it to the outfit in Brazil. Don't know if that is true, or an urban legend. I do know that the value of the used Brazilian models are quite a bit less then the genuine Remington's, which have acquired almost a "cult' status.
YMMV, but I wouldn't pay more then $100 for a CBC nylon rifle.
They were made on machinery moved to S.A./CBC (their subsidiary) by Remington after Remington discontinued their Nylon series (boltguns, leverguns & autoloaders).
In 1936, Remington & ICI bought CBC.
By 1960, after consolidating it's position a a producer of cartridges only, CBC began producing a line of small arms ( break-open single-shot shotguns, etc, etc), later including the Nylon 66, which started to be exported from S.A. in 1966.
CBC was re-nationalized by Brazil in 1980.
