Everything about the Remington Nylon Rifles!

About

Several years ago Mac66 set out to find information about the Remington Nylon Rifles on the web. Since he happened to acquire several of these guns and was intriuged by their design and history he wanted to get as much info as he could as far as how to care for them, repairs and any other tips and tricks that would help with these plastic guns. What he found was a very scattered hodge-podge of information that many times seemed to counterdict itself. As Mac66 dug deeper he discovered that there were many other collectors and enthusiests out there that were also searching for details on these rifles.

In August of 2001, Mac66 set up the NylonRifles group on Yahoo Groups  to collect and share information about these Remington Nylons with others. Over the nearly 6 years and several hundred members the group collected a great amount of information including articles, literature, repair guides, service manuals and photos. The discussions there benefitted the whole Nylon Rifle community and the sharing of stories and knowledge helped to gain a better appreciation for these plastic guns and better understanding of the history behind them. With this vast amount of information and the limitations of the Yahoo groups it became apparent that the Nylon Rifle and the community that had been build around it needed a proper home on the web.

In April of 2007 Mac66 enlisted the help of LouieMacGoo to help develop a website that would properly host the NylonRifle community as well as provide a place that the information that had been collected could be stored and be easily searchable On May 1, 2007 we opened up the forums on this website followed shortly after by the articles and other parts of the site.

Since both Mac66 and LouieMacGoo are just hobbiests and not professional web designers the site has been relatively small. But we are commited to supporting the community that we have formed here and continuing to gather and provide information about these fine Rifles.

The best and most active part of the site for getting information and sharing is the forum and we encourage you to join and share your stories about these fine rifles.

Thanks for stopping by and we look forward to seeing you on the site!

    I had a green Nylon 66 50 years ago that my dad bought me, stolen 25 years ago. He loved the light weight of it, perfect for kids. Recently after reading “Into The Wild”, and my teenage daughter wanting to learn how to shoot, I wish I could replace it; such a nice rifle it was. Where is a good place to purchase one? Fortunately for my daughter I am borrowing my brother's Apache, bought for him shortly after mine. I believe it was manufactured around 1959; we were both ten to eleven years old. I'll use the letter code from the contained article to verify it.

    There are a lot of places to find these rifles, online, gun shops, gun shows and even pawn shops. Online and gunshops are where you can expect to pay top dollar where as some gun shows you can find a good deal from time to time. perhaps the best place to get the best prices are at pawn shops. Usually the owners don't know what they have and let them go for a pretty good price. The Seneca Green like you had is going to go for a higher price since there were less of those made. I'm sure that the forums at http://nylonrifles.com/forums would be able to give you a better idea of what you can expect to pay and where the best places are to fine these guns. Hope to see you there and Good luck with your Nylon 66 hunt.

    Thanks for your answer. I will check some pawn shops. Maybe I'll get lucky. Also, while I'm at it, what do you think of the Argentine (?) -made rifles? How do I tell the difference?

    I have a Remington Apache Nylon 77, still in the box, never been fired—bought it years ago at K-mart. What is this worth?

      Most likly more than you would believe

  • Weg59505

    Below is a listing of my Apache 77—I would be interested in trading for the mohawk brown color. Gun must be of equal condition-would like box, but not a requirement if condition is mint.

  • Andy

    I have the Kmart special – the Apache 77, and want to mount a basic Cabelas scope to it. I believe someone makes see thru sites. Do you know of they make these for the Nylons and where I can find them? By the way great site!!

  • Weg59505

    I forgot to mention my Apache 77 is Seneca green……..

    I have a nylon66 but the stock is broken on both sides by the trigger. The gun still shoots fine, but is a little wobbly. Can anyone help me find a new or used stock for my 66?

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/David-Wamsley/100002289471602 David Wamsley

      If you gun is broken would you consider selling it?

    You can tell we are very eager to get the word out

    Is there a subsitute stock for a Remmington nylon 10c
    Mine fell and broke at the butt, it shoots but cosmeticly it looks bad.
    Remington garenteed that the stock wouldd not chip crack or break, my stock did all 3. They were nice enough to send me a replacement stock, for a 66 which does not do me any good
    Any ideas?

    • Nylon66Lover

      CONVERT IT TO A 66

      • Nylon66Lover

        You will need the tube unless they sent one with the new stock. I have a 10 C, I would rather have it as a 66 because the 66 does not jam as much.

  • jack

    iam looking for a receiver cover for my nylon 66 or a scope that will mount. my rear site is broken.. can anybody help?

  • jack

    jack again, looking for scope or receiver cover, email me at zuelich@sbcglobal.net

  • Nylon66Lover

    I had a Seneca green Nylon 66, mint condition still in the box stolen. Can someone give an estimated value for this?

    • Nylon66Lover

      I am asking because I have an insurance adjuster asking and I can not find one online to give him an estimate. Honestly, I would rather have my Nylon back, it was my fathers and it was the first year they made them. Still in the BOX!!!!

  • John

    I have a Remington Nylon 66 Apache bought new about 36 years ago. While I have not fired it a great deal, it is only because I could never get a scope to work. I understand the arguments for not putting a scope on these nice little rifles because of the receiver housing instability, blah, blah, blah. However, I am now trying to mount a newer short red dot type site but am having some trouble with the base/mounts. Is the grooved slot on top the same as a weaver mount, or is it some other configuration? I want to go from whatever will currently fit to a picatinny rail. I found several adapters, but need to make sure what is on the rifle is truly a weaver configuration. Any help is appreciated
