The first gun I ever fired was my grandfather's nylon 66. My grandma was selling it so it's in my collection now. Was bought new in 66 by my grandpa and will be in the family for a long time to come.

Who would have thought they would be a collector firearm today? Seems coming out with a stock and forearm way back in the "wood" only days would be a bad gamble. I broke down and bought a Ruger American 22 magnum which I have to admit is super accurate and great to carry in the woods.

I had one also, but there's just no nostalgia like this is with a Nylon 66. Just holding one can transport you back to 'the day" as a kid when you first got to handle one. Yea, the Ruger American's are accurate, but so are the Nylon 66's. A shame that Remington can't bring back a version of this. The 597's are nice (I have a 597M), but just not the same.

Everyone or Anyone,
I have read the posts on the Nylon .22. I am one of those happy users of the Nylon rifle. I have 3, a model 10C (Mohawk brown), a model 66 (Apache Black/Chrome), and a model 76 which is the lever action model that I have had since it was new in 1962. My model 76 was broken right through the stock when a horse decided to lay down while it was still saddled and my rifle was in the scabbard. That was about 20 years ago and I have kept it for sentimental reasons. Last gun show I went to, out of the blue I found a model 76 stock in a pile of other old used wooden stocks. Now I have a replacement to bring my old rifle out of retirement and use it again. However, I was wondering if anyone out there has ever disassembled and rebuilt one before or any idea how difficult it is to do?

Thanks for any suggestions,

Copper BB

[url][/url]Received my Seneca Green Nylon 66 as a 1959 Christmas present; production date December 1959. Have shot this several thousands of times, no mis-fires. Hunted woodchucks at dairy farms in northern New Jersey (Garden State Farm, Sicomac Dairy, both in Wyckoff) - these dairies were converted to residential housing developments in the 60s and 70s, with Wyckoff becoming part of the greater NYC metropolitan area.

Rifle is both accurate and reliable. The barrel is stamped 22 L.R. ONLY. Under that is stamped the code for the production date - XF.

I do. The base Exchange at Elmendorf AFB in Anchorage still does.


Ditto. And I've bought at the AFEX at Elmendorf (now JBER). But finding a military base that doesn't think you're a criminal was getting harder. At NOB Norfolk, we weren't allowed to keep personal guns on base. But I'm from this era too, and I have my Mohawk Brown Nylon 66 stored away. Great shooters.
