    Yes, I own one. They were made by Remington. Unless you are talking a new version.

    Remington Nylon 66. Came out in the very late '50s or early '60s (prior to 66). If I remember they were made at least into the '90s. Mohawk brown (as in Ray's), Apache black, and a very rare (early production) green.

    I have one in Mohawk Brown from the early '60s ... works flawlessly.

    Remington made Nylon 66, 76 and 77 in semi auto plus a Nylon 10 in bolt action. I think they also made a model 11 and 12.

    Some of those bolt models can be pretty pricey.

    I have one also, 1964 it came with the chainsaw, you buy a saw & get a Nylon 66, had some feeding problems, luckly my great uncle was a smith, worked his magic on it back then, and still running fine.
    Question; where is the serial # on that gun, I can't find it. Thanks

    Prior to the Gun Control Act of 1968 rifles were not required to have serial numbers on them. Remington started numbering Nylon rifles in 1967 starting with #40000-419011. In 1968 the numbers ranged from 419012-473710. The serial numbers were located on the bottom of the barrel, below and just back a bit from the front sight. In December of 1968 serial numbers were moved to the receiver cover and re-started at 2100000 and went to 2599999 in January of 1977. In February 1977 an “A” was added and the range was restarted at A2100000. These serial number series pertain to all Nylon rifles, not just Nylon 66s.
    Quick serial number guide:
    No serial number, pre 1967 rifles
    Serial number range 400-419K 1967 rifle
    Serial number range 419-473K 1968 rifle
    Serial number range 2.1 million-2.59 million December 1968- January 1977 rifle
    Serial number range with an “A” prefix-post Feb 1977 rifle.

    I have a 66 lever action. Accuracy is ok, nothing great. Cool gun for the kids.

    Lever action is a model 76. I think I would buy another 22 for the kids and look into the value of the 76 a little more. IRC, the 76 and some of the other varients, were only made for 2-3yrs. The 66 was made for 3 decades.

    A little tid bit I looked up. There were over 1,058,000 Nylon 66s made. There were roughly 26,927 Nylon 76s made.

    Correct, it is a 76. I do know that was the only lever action rifle remington ever made.

    Found it after grandad passed, in the original box. Thing is about brand new, has a 500 count box of bullets that's about 3/4 full. The receipt from Damman hardware in Sterling Heights had 2 prices, $79 and $.89, assuming the gun and box o bullets. He bought his Browning A5 and Remington 7400 there, and I remember him telling me he paid $200 each for those. My God I wish I could go back in time, huh?

    So yeah, the 22 hasn't been shot in a while. Kids have their own arsenal of 22s, but the Nylon is the 1st gun my daughter ever shot, when she was 6. Wow, been 11yrs since that gun left its box.

    This thread just made my day.
