    Very good deal for $175.

    As a kid, I decided to detail strip my father's 66.....three words of advice....don't do it!

    A nylon 66 is the only gun I've had to take to a gunsmith to put back together after I took it apart.

    I had a Marlin Golden 39A, my buddies all had the 66. This was long ago when I was 9 years old.

    Same here...after charging me $10 (a chunk of change for a 14-year old in 1978), the gunsmith said to me,
    "Kid, don't ever do that again."

    They are such nice looking guns. I remember looking through my old man's Remington catalogue and hoping that I would own one in Black (Apache Black?).

    Most guys buy hot rods in their midlife crisis. That would be my midlife crisis gun.

    I owned the model with a magazine when I was only 16. It shot great but did not like CCI stingers.

    For some reason mine will always jam on the second shot (the first the feed system sends to the chamber after manually loading the first shell from the tube) unless I load one less than full, jack the bolt, and top it off. Then it works fine. Can't figure out why, but it works fine otherwise, so I put up with it.

    I picked up this beater around Jan of 12 I think, for $125 +tax. Some gouges and no front sight. Put an old 4x15 scope on it then got a front sight and screws (no washers but worked w/o them) from Bob's Gun Shop for about $21 I think. I also have a 10C, it uses mags (got it for $30 :supergrin: )

    Here's the 10C (part of it anyway).

    ETA: The 66 is, I think around a 1964 model, no serial number.
