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.

Introduction to the Remington Nylon Rifle

| January 16, 2009

Production of the Nylon 66 started in 1959 and ran until 1987.

There were about 1,050,000 Nylon 66s made. The standard model had a brown stock (called Mohawk Brown) with blue metal. It was a tube fed through the stock semi auto. Variations included a green stocked version (Seneca Green), a black stock and chrome receiver version called “Apache black” and a black stock/blued metal rifle called the “Black Diamond”.

The “Black Diamond” model started production in 1978 and ran until all Nylon 66 models were stopped in 1987. The “Apache Black” version is sometimes called the presentation model and was made until 1983. In addition, there was a “150th Anniversary” model produced in 1966 and a “Bicentennial” model in 1976. Both had brown stocks and gold etched, blued receivers. There was also a version that shot 22 shorts called the “Gallery Special”. This version had a shell deflector on the cover and often a metal swivel on the bottom of the receiver to chain it to a shooting gallery bench. A very few Gallery Specials were known to have been made in black and chrome.
