    My very first rifle. Not sure when purchased. I think I was 16, around 1961 or so.

    I just finished blueing my dads nylon, it had rust all over and it was no longer functioning. I took it to the gunsmith to see what it needed and I did the paint job I'm going to hand it to my pops tomorrow. He doesn't even know I have it.it was his childhood .22 he even killed deer with it back in the day.

    I bought mine around 1972 for apx $75.00 NIB. A lot of Woodchucks lives have ended,Because of my nylon 66 (Apache Black ) model & the CCI stinger ammo. My only gripe with this gun is mounting a Scope on it is next to impossible? Due to the receivers groove on top of it.? A scope ring & base does not hold solid enough to stay on the gun,Without moving around a lot.? So I use it only with the open sights on it with good results out to 100 yds.

    I went to a gun show recently and the asking prices for Nylon 66s, in OK condition, (I cannot be more specific as I did not waste my time with close examinations) were between $375 and $450. I was shocked.

    Can I play?

    I don't have all of them but I have quite a few. So many in fact that I started www.nylonrifles.com a few years ago to gather info. I have all the assembly/disassembly manual direction online and well as a bunch of other info. The website has been down for 6 or 7 months due to a virus attack. Just got it back up this week. There is also a forum. I also write about other stuff on the main page but the purpose of nylonrifles.com was to document everything about nylon rifles. Enjoy.

    Here are just a couple of mine...

    Great site mac66. I watched your disassemble/reassemble videos and cleaned up both of my Nylons back when I picked up my latest. I think I found Bob's in your forum too.

    Those videos rock. I have never taken the trigger assembly apart cause heck the rest of the rifle was hard enough to put together.

    Gee, of the 30 or so nylon rifles I have, not one cost me more than $100. If you can get $500 a piece for yours let me know who you are selling them too.:supergrin: I would like to cash in on some of mine as well.

    Putting them back together is tricky which is why we have field service manuals and assembly and disassembly guides on the website. We also have a video on how to do it.

    :cool: ..I had one of the black Apache models with the chrome barrel and reciever. It was tube fed from the rear of the stock. It ws a heck of a gun and had it for many years. But when I don't use one of my guns in some time, I sell it and get something else. I sold it to a good friend and have been trying to buy it back for the past 4 years. Bummer!

    This is my latest .22 Ruger
