I shot lots of grub on the trapline with mine.The weak part was the plastic magazine,but those are replaceable.I replaced my 66 for use on the trapline with a viper.The nylon 66 was a better shooting gun(accuracy wise) than the viper,but the viper was a tougher gun for the trapline.

About 10 years ago, I found a used one in a local sporting goods store called the Apache grade. It was in pristine condition. I asked the store owner why the guy got rid of it? It seems he traded it in on one of those small Browning semi-auto rifles. He took the Remington out hunting once and got a scratch in the stock and felt it was too fancy to take out into the woods hunting. So, he traded on the Browning.

That seemed silly to me. But, I took it home, got to looking at it, and how it looked brand new. I never did take it hunting. I use it for "show & tell" in our firearms training classes. I tell the kids it's a semi-auto, tubular fed, and ask them if they can figure out where the tube is? We have a lot of fun with that.

Brings back memories for me...I attempted to take my 66 apart for a good cleaning in the late 1980s.
I had the side plates off and slowly removed the barrel and watched as a spring went sailing across the room along with a few other small parts. Being all thumbs at the time I never could put the darn thing back together so it functioned correctly.
Ended up selling at a gun show for 40 bucks to an old gun smith

Remington 77 was a clip feed Semi auto rifle, a Nylon 66, was a tube fed semi auto, Nylon 12, was bolt action, tube feed, 76 trail rider was a lever action tube feed and a 10 was a clip feed semi auto too. All with the nylon stock. They came in black, brown and green stocks and I read purple, although I have never seen one. Blued and chrome finish 19" & 24" barrels. . I am not sure if all models came in the chrome finish. There was also a Model 11 and 12.

I saw a Nylon 66 chambered in .30 carbine once back in the early '70's,apparently it was a nylon frankensteined by a gunsmith,as I never heard of such a thing.

That must have required a lot of modification on the bolt assembly

My friend from school had the cheaper grade of the 66. He loved it. He said it never jammed and was very accurate.

Remington had a ad that told of the 66 being used to break over 100,000 wood blocks thrown in the air without a malfunction. That ad was in all the outdoor magazines when I was a kid. A buddy had a Apache that we shot a zillion rounds through, I loved that little rifle. This got me thinking I might need to go buy one,lol.

When the Nylon 66 first came on the market, Remington was also making chainsaws. Remington had a promo where if you purchased a chainsaw, they gave you a Nylon 66. Thatís how my Grandfather acquired his Nylon66. He always told me, after running the chainsaw, he realized why they gave him the rifle. Because after running the saw, you would want to shoot yourself.
