Remington Nylon 66 .22 rifle. Paid $135 for it new, shot a couple hundred rounds and never could hit anything with it. Still have the thing with the box. Last time I fired it was in 1988, so maybe time to dust it off and try again, then put it away for another 25 years or give it to a nephew I don't like.

I bought one of those back in '68. Think I paid $68 for it. Didn't use it that much and always kept it in pristine condition. It was about the lightest gun possible. Problem with it was that the nylon stock did not have enough rigidity and on top of that the barrel is fixed to that stock as the bolt carrige is also part of it. No matter how you hold onto it the pressure of your hands deflects the stock/barrel so it always shoots in a different spot. Last year I decided to sell a few of the guns I haven't shot in more than 20 years. Got $460 for it on Wish I bought the bolt action version because it is more rare and would have brought more. Naturally I pi$$ed the money away on more guns I probably won't shoot that much (can't find ammo anyway).

Wow, we had 2 of them. One had a detachable clip/mag that wasn't right for the gun and would jam alot but the other one with the tubular mag was a fine gun to plink with. My complaint was being left handed the brass would burn me a lot.
