.22 rifle question.

Buddy had a Remington Nylon 66 Apache taking up too much space in his gun safe. I told him to name his price and he said $100. I bought it... Was it worth it?

Even if it's not the best .22, I would think $100 is a good deal. Even better if it's nice and you'll use it. Just tough to find any .22 ammo these days! (Other then what I already have. )

If it's in good shape you got a good deal. They were ahead of their time when they were introduced due to the durable plastic stock.

It's in real good shape, cant wait to go shoot it.

The way it loads is unusual, like nothing I've shot before.

Last one I saw at auction went for 200+. I'm not a 22 guy but remember the plastic stock.

YES!

Regular asking price for the same rifle in my neck of the woods is around $350.

Great rifle, I have the same one. I've seen them go as high as $425.

Unfortunately, scopes on these guns are pretty much worthless because there's so much play in the receiver. So, don't expect it to be accurate with it on it.

Good to know. I may get rid of it and adjust the stock sight.

The Nylon 66 is WAY tougher than most people give it credit for. Yes $100 is a good deal! Short of using it for a club, you'll never break it. The other excellent and very durable .22 semi-auto is the Ruger 10/22 series.
