Everything about the Remington Nylon Rifles!

Apache 77 Serial Number Survey

| January 19, 2009

The Apache 77 was a green stock nylon rifle made for K-Mart and sold from 1987-1989. Although it’s unclear how many were actually made. Estimates range from 10,000, 50,000 to over 100,000.

Over the last few years we have been conducting a survey of these rifles that we can find so we can get an idea of the serial number range. With enough data,
we should be able to figure out approximately how many A77s were made.

Home Brewed Ed’s Red Bore Cleaner

| January 18, 2009

Since I mixed my first “Ed’s Red” (ER) bore cleaner five years ago, hundreds of users have told me that they find it as effective as commercial products. This cleaner has an action similar to military rifle bore cleaner, such as Mil-C-372B. It is highly effective for removing plastic fouling from shotgun bores, caked carbon in semi-automatic rifles or pistols, or leading in revolvers.

How much is it worth?

| January 17, 2009

How many times have you asked or read on different forums the above question? The answer of course is quite simple. “It” is worth whatever you, or someone else is willing to pay for it. Of course that answer is rather simplistic as is the question. The real question is: What determines the value? Or, what criteria is the value of my rifle based on? Those questions are not so easily answered.
