Is a Remington Nylon 66 worth buying today as a shooter? I was at my LGS the other day and noticed a funny looking brown rifle in the corner. I asked to see it, and immediately notice a white diamond on the forend and when I picked it up it was so lightweight it almost shot out of my hands across the room! It was a Remington Nylon 66. My God. I couldn't believe it. I had heard of these guns before, how they were one of the first synthetic stocked commercial guns and how light and handy they were. But... that's all I knew about them. The gun appeared to be in top condition, no scratches or rust anywhere on it. I pulled the bolt back and the action appeared to be only a little dirty. But, I passed on it. I just didn't know enough about the guns. So, I went home and did a little research. It appears most find these to be accurate enough for plinking and hunting (I would mostly use it for fun, but also maybe squirrel hunting) and most report good reliability. But I am just wondering if such a gun would make a good shooter? I am wondering do they break often? Are parts hard to find for them? Are they prone to any damage or issues? Basically, I am wondering that if I bought one, would it last as a shooter? I think they are super unique and are much more interesting than say a Ruger 10/22. Just looking for some input guys. That little Nylon rifle might still be up there... Thanks!
