My Father bought the mohawk brown version in the 60's and has recently passed it down to me. After shooting many modern .22's and putting hundreds of rounds through my 66 plus what my father put through it over the years, it has stood up and in some cases out performed those modern .22's. I would recommend to anyone who owns a gun or wants to buy a gun to purchase a classic Remington Nylon 66, this gun is one of Americas true innovative classic firearms. (read more)

I have owned my 66 for 40 years and it shoots as well as the day I bought it. It's the best gun I ever owned.
And I paid 50.00 for it.
Only bad part, I never found a scope that I liked on it. (read more)

First shot was at a bird on the fence line and boom .... two birds and my love was on.Now at 60 and still own it and shot LOTS of bullets thru it with no real cleaning it will still carry the load. Lite , accurate and a hoot to shoot. I LOVE IT -- always have and always will.Anybody that can get one needs too. Bros keep popping rounds. (read more)

I bought my Nylon 66 either in 1957 or 1958. I was about 17 or 18 at the time. Mine has a green stock, and a Weaver 4x scope. A few months later my dad had to go to the store and sign for it because I was not old enough to buy it myself. I have shot thousands of rounds of ammunition through it with absolutely no trouble whatsoever. Recently, I had it professionally cleaned to ensure it would last another 52 or 53 years. (read more)

In 1966 when I was 14 years old my Dad gave me a Nylon Black and Chrome Apache 66 for my birthday.
I still own the rifle and it brings back many fond memories.
I live in the foothills of East Tennessee, and one very cold winter morning, Ginger(my blue tick hound) and I went squirrel hunting, and as I was making my way through the woods a low hanging branch was blocking my path, so I used my rifle to knock it out of my way and to my surprise the end of my Nylon stock broke off!
Of course my... (read more)

It may be long to charge your rifle due to the cylinder mag in the buttstock. Really lightweight, handling is easy, rapid rate of fire (enough)
do the job for hunting coyote, rabbit and plinking. Not enough quality on the stock but for a gift, I dont mind. (read more)

The Remington Nylon 66 is light weight and accurate. I have the black stock and chrome barrel model. I have owned it for about 30 years. It has shot too many rounds to count and still shoots as good as the day I bought it. (read more)

I bought this rifle as my first firearm, at 14 years old. I did not clean it for years and treated it roughly. I am 47 now and it still shoots fine. This is a great rifle with a long life. I'd encourage anyone to buy one and go shooting inexpensively. (read more)

When I was kid growing up on a farm in the 70's I owned a Mohawk Brown Nylon 66. I shot countless bricks of .22 ammo through that gun. One summer it seemed I only worked to buy .22 ammo. I loved that gun so much I bought a 2nd and then the Apache Black model when it came out. Unfortunatley, I sold those 3 guns when I entered the Army. in hind site, what a mistake that was but who was to know they wouldn't be around today? Remington if you were to put them back on the maket today I would... (read more)

My old man has owned one (chrome barrel) ever since I can remember. He's killed hundreds of squirrels and crows over the years (the former used to get in our attic and the latter threatened his extensive garden). I learned to shoot open-sight with that gun. It was a significant item in my childhood memories. (read more)

The first firearm I ever purchased was an "Apache Black" Nylon 66, tubular magazine, chrome barrel and receiver cover, and black nylon stock. The rifle is just plain fun to shoot and is a squirrel's worst nightmare. You will get the most fun with this rifle using the (adequate) iron sights as you can rapidly realign your aim, making bouncing a tin can into the air a snap! If you can find one in good condition, buy it. I still have mine and will not willingly part with it. (read more)

The Remington Nylon 66 is an ultimate fun gun. Every firearms collection should contain at least one of these lightweight .22 auto-loaders. My Nylon is the tube-through-stock version; black stock with chrome barrel and receiver. It is still as accurate and reliable as the day it rolled off the Ilion, NY assembly line in 1966. (read more)

My father selected a Remington Nylon 66 in 1963 or 1964 as his award for meeting a sales quota with American Greetings Cards. (I think his choices were along the lines of an electric adding machine, a fancy clock, or the Nylon 66.) He gave the rifle to me, and a few months later, I got a Weaver scope, which as I recall was made in my hometown of El Paso, for Christmas.
My grandfather had given me a VERY old single-shot child's Winchester .22 when I was five or six years old. He later took... (read more)

I have had my Remington Nylon 66 for about a year and a half, and I plan on keeping it until I can't hold it up, which will probably never happen. This gun is perfect for even the youngest of hunters. Mine weighs around three to four pounds equipped with a red dot scope. Therefore, it takes no muscle at all to hold it up. I could walk all day through even the toughest terrain without my upper body feeling tired in the end. This gun can fire faster than your finger can pull the trigger. And,... (read more)

I have had the same Remington Nylon 66 (brown) since I was 15 yrs old, I'm now 56! This gun was put through hell when I was younger growing up in rural Oklahoma. Rain, snow, mud, being dropped, abused, never cleaned, and it never, ever jammed to my knowledge. As a teenager I must have run 3 to 4 boxes of shell through it every week, usually as fast as I could pull the trigger, shooting turtles, rabbits, cans, snakes, frogs, anything a country boy could find. This gun has always been my... (read more)

I have owned the Remington Nylon 66 for over 8 years. This rifle is just so reliable, accurate, light-weight, and a fun .22lr auto-loading rifle. It is my favorite. If I had to choose to live with one rifle, I would choose the Nylon 66 because of its reliability. You don't ever need to care for maintenance; this rifle is mostly made of self-lubricating material. The trigger is very good and crisp. The open sights give you a nice and clean view. I just love this gun.
