Found a nylon 66 in the river and all the parts were rust. Not sure how long it was in the river.

You could have just said....."they aren't for sale". That would have been true because you already sold them But NO ! You had to make it clear that your friends don't really come first !

I'm wondering if you need a vacation ?

I remember the ad for them in outdoor magazines. A guy in hip boots with a pack basket on, standing in a creek with a number one longspring in one hand and the nylon 66 in the other.

Catch I’ve owned three of the 66. The first was accurate enough to shoot at shot shell primers at fifteen, twenty yards and expect to hit them.

I have worked on and shot dozens of customers Ruger 10/22s and that’s the reason I have never owned one.
It’s not a bad design, in my opinion the Remington is just better.

Capacity 15 to 10. Remington super easy to load. No magazine to lose.
Accuracy 66–under 1/2” 10/22– under 3/4” five shots off bench at 25 yards. I After market target bull bbls and machined bedding block stocks not a fair comparison, I’m saying stock rifle to stock rifle of the original design.
Rely ability; Usually the only 66s in the shop were there to be reassembled after the owners couldn’t. or to be refinished. 10/22 most common reason be in shop Failure to feed, followed by Failure to eject.
Durability I refer you to previous posts about multiple thousands of rounds through a simi auto without cleaning
Heck I even helped a fellow dealer at a gun show get a 10/22.new out of the box to where the bolt would slide. (Poor machine work on chassis.)
Ugly yep. The Remington wins again but ya gotta admit the shark fin on the front is kinda cool
Resale! Collectabity well again stock to stock really no comparison . Just personal experience.

160user thanks for the memories, sorry I got a little sideways there.

The 10/22 was made with an aluminum receiver and a steel barrel fitted to the receiver via an ingenious dovetail feature that allowed for easy disassembly. The blow-back action made it fairly simple to keep clean and functioning. Its patented 10-shot, rotary magazine was an improved version of the Mannlicher-Schoenauer magazine first developed by Steyr, and proved to be remarkably well suited to .22-caliber ammo. This design functioned significantly better than most tubular-, single- or double-stack magazines.

John “Chief AJ” Huffer set a world record in 1987 by shooting 40,060 thrown wooden blocks that measured only 2.5 inches without a miss or a malfunction over a period of seven consecutive days using 18 different Ruger 10/22’s. His single-day record was 8,900 blocks.

I will just let the chips fall

I had one as a kid.
Was thumbing through some old 70s fur fish and game and found this ad.

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

I have two in the gun safe. One I have had since the early 70's and the other traded for a while back.
The one from the 70's has jillion trap line miles on it. Could not guess the number of dispatch shots it has made.
Never had a malfunction with any ammo. Weighs a couple of pounds and holds 14 rounds.
Retired them when I saw what they bring now.

Cheif AJ's guns were also a production gun gone over in great detail to resolve the manufacturing issues of production.

true up the breach face , radius the back edge of the bolt , re-chamber and cut extractor groove , polish the the bolt , re-crown the muzzle and give it a trigger job.

it's a little like saying a Wilson combat 1911 is production , Wilson Combat figures out how to take good to a whole new level much like Chief AJ.

also what kept Cheif AJ from doing more was his legs swole up so bad he couldn't stand any more

as for the age old tube vs magazine I think it has a lot to do with how you hunt

if you leave your gun loaded all the time and step out the back door and go hunting and never unload tube is great nothing to get lost

if you have to unload every time you get to the truck to transport , the tube is a real pain and the box magazine is the way to go , I was in the unload every time returning to the truck so I like box mags

the 10 round rotary mags definitely work well and can be dissembled and cleaned and wound a little tighter if need be when you re-assemble them


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.
