    Remington Nylon 66 Rimfire rifle

    Hi Guys,

    Picked up this Nylon 66 a few months back, I have taken it to the range a few times and it has functioned flawlessly cycling every sub and super ammo I have thrown at it - even before I cleaned years worth of crap out of the action. These are well known to be ultra reliable actions and are used in Alaska and other areas that are hard on rifles.

    This one has had some modifications to it over its years by the looks so its not a collectors piece but could be good for a collector who would love to use a Nylon out in the field but doesn't want to get theirs dirty... Or just someone that wants a light weight and reliable .22 with a good mag capacity.

    Holes drilled in stock for the included "sling"
    Some scratches etc on the stock
    Barrel has been cut down, re crowned (beautifully!) and threaded
    Muzzle end open sight is missing
    Bolt handle was missing when I got it so I machined up an alloy one for it. The original plastic ones can be picked up easily for about $6 usd
    Most of the bluing on the barrel is gone

    Shoots good groups, the one shown was when it had a crappy scope on it and at 50m, Just been shooting it today with a better scope and it was tighter. I have just bought a 3rd rimfire and decided one needs to be moved on.

    No scope, rings or silencer included.

    In collectible condition these seem to go for $350 ish. Ill take $200 plus shipping for this one. Located in Hawkes Bay for pickups.
