Our Assessment: The following is from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remington_Nylon_66: “The Remington Nylon 66 was manufactured from 1959-1989. It was the first mass-produced rifle to feature a stock made from a material other than wood. For this reason it was a huge gamble for Remington . . . The largely synthetic construction meant that the Nylon 66 could operate without any added lubricants. This made it very popular in arctic regions and indeed there have been many reports of indigenous peoples taking large animals, such as moose, with a .22LR fired from a Nylon 66. Some have speculated that the light weight of the gun could potentially cause substandard accuracy in the field, but this does not seem to be a complaint from Nylon 66 shooters.” One thing is for sure – this is one of the lightest rifles you will ever find. This will make anyone a great plinker (after you have added a scope), and should easily last for another 40 years.
