I think the name pertained only to the color. When new, mine had a brown stock and the box called it a Mohawk (that would be racist today) but it has the tubular magazine. After changing the stock a few times it now wears the black stock that was original on the Apache (also racist). When Remington sent me the current black stock with white diamonds they also included a letter saying it was the last stock they had and that's why they sent black instead of brown.
It still shoots the same and I guess it's still racist regardless of color

Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

Every time I see a 66 my mind automatically drifts back to those fall hunts in the mid '70's when we were kids small game hunting.Squirrels were our main targets,with an occasional rabbit..22 rounds were cheap and everywhere,when we weren't hunting we were target practising.We had many delicious fried squirrel dinners thanks to the 66's.Good times!
