    I have one of those bought it brand new and maybe 100 rounds through it. Great gun I love it accurate too. I bought it in the early 80's don't know when it was manufactured though. Its Black too.

    I have a brown one. The most reliable 22 rifle I have ever owned. I bought mine for 59 dollars brand new in 1968. Lost the white diamond inlay some place up in the moutains of Utah. BRGII

    Never take it apart, you will never get it back together.

    Shot410ga - Yeah, they are tricky. However, a friend once handed me a 66 stock, a barrel & receiver, and a mason jar full of parts (with one or two springs sticking out the top, as I remember). I got it back together with nothing left over - that's aways a good sign. The guy said it shot, though I never actually saw it in action. It can be done, but I would not want to have to do it again.

    I can do you one better wm rike. My box full of parts was missing one. I got a blow up schematic, I think from Numrich, figured out what the missing part was, ordered it, and put it back together. It stovepipes horizontally though, and I haven't had time to figure out why.

    wireguy are you useing the cheap ammo [wildcat/thunderbolt]? that is what mine done Rem highspeed works fine they are no good for a scope because the metal receiver cover is not conected to the barrel rick

    It's Remington bulk ammo. Gonna have to try some real quality ammo and see what happens. My other old well used '66 wears a scope and it is amazing how consistent it is. Maybe not enough recoil to move the cover around? wireguy
