Well, I got JB Wood's book on taking apart 22 rifles and proceeded to take it apart for cleaning---never again---a bunch of tiny springs and such---a real pain in the arse to put back together as well! The rifle was slim and lightweight, and despite my cleaning and reassembly, it continued to function just fine.
One day my long-time shooting buddy (RIP) came to me and wanted to buy this rifle---he explained that it was the only rifle his wife could hold-up and shoot because she was injured in a car crash---they were moving to SW Texas and he explained that this would be a huge favor to him---as these rifles were not collectable at that time, I sold him the Nylon 66 for a reasonable price and his widow still shoots it to this day.
I had two other 22 rifles---an older Ruger 10-22 Deluxe Sporter and a Belgium made 22 Auto from the early 60s, I didn't feel like I was lacking in 22 rifles, but, the Nylon 66 had been my "teaching" gun to start people off on shooting and I started to miss it. I looked around and suddenly Nylon 66s were "collector" items demanding really high prices---especially for a nice example. I stopped thinking about getting another one until one day at my club range, an older gentleman approached me and said he was selling off a few of his guns as he said he had far too many---and there it was---a near perfect Mohawk brown 66 in 99% percent condition---he was quite reasonable about the price, and I still have it---it shoots right to point of aim with most HV ammo and runs 100%---it's my wife's favorite gun, and one of my favorites as well---it ain't goin' nowhere...
Great Story!

Wasn't my story, I've had my current Mohawk for 20+ years, have had another couple which I sold and a KMart version which I sold also. Kept this one as it has the vintage scope on it and it's a great shooter. Always on the lookout for more at "reasonable" prices though. That one Mohawk at Cabela's ABQ, NM fer $599 is just a little "beyond" ridiculous. I think they have it confused with the more rare versions, but then they have a rack of Mosins for $350 each!

My apology...
Jyo was the post.
I love my Black & Chrome Apache,
and my recent purchase of a Mohawk Brown Nylon 66.
I too own a Rossi Pump Action .22lr carbine but with the short barrel. All fun plinkers.

LGS had and Apache Black (white diamond) sometime back they wanted $400+ for it but the receiver cover wasn't in very good condition. They tried to tell me it was the rarest version, I just said uh huh. Isn't the black diamond the more rare? I'll have to printout my reference material and carry it with me!

No apology needed!

Good insight. If I ever sell my Black Diamond, I'll head back for a visit. Want to dump my Walther P22-CA also since I purchased a "real" P22.

Got my Mohawk Brown in the late 70’s too. It was my first rifle. It always felt like a toy gun with all the plastic back then. Reliable and fun to shoot. Made the mistake of breaking it down to see “how it works “, boy that was a mistake.

The first rifle, or firearm of any kind, that I ever fired was a Nylon 66 in Apache Black. I was seven. The rifle belonged to my Dad; he did not have too many guns at the time, just this rifle and a Ruger standard model pistol. My Dad has passed, but it I have the rifle.
This thread prompted me to check the date code. Remington built mine in 1962. That is consistent with my memory. It has been more than 40 years since I fired it. I think it is due for a trip to the range.

FYI - saw one listed on the Northwestfirearms site yesterday. It was a black Apache asking $475 with scope.

Now all of you who bought sub $150 can go to bed with a smile on your face this PM

Mossberg 46b is a hidden gem. I bought mine for $50 before they ruined C&R in california, I did some restoration on the stock, and I wouldnt sell it for $500 now.

I saw a nylon 66 at outdoor sportsman in stockton over the weekend, if anyone is looking.

It's been there for several months-maybe they will take an offer.

Love these old Remington polymer rifles that came out in 1958. Have a few of them, have fixed more than I can remember and still enjoy them, they are the first polymer “frame”, FCG held in w cross pins firearm, assembled beautifully, artful firearm. Would love to find one of the other color salesman stocks, 22 short gallery, centennial or Remington anniversary models.
