One of my older neighbors stopped by one of my places the other morning as I was going to another pasture and I had to get off the tractor to visit.YADA YADA,anyway he had this gun wrapped in a sheet laying in the seat of his truck.Being a little curios I had to know what it was.I asked and his reply was that it was a plastic gun of some sort and was not wood so it could not be much punkin!Long story short,100.00 bucks and a few minutes later I was the owner of a black Apache,chrome receiver and barrel,pretty nice old nylon 66.I had one when I was married to NO.1 but she took that along with a few others when she went somewhere else!It's a pretty nice old gun and will cycle as fast as you can pull the trigger.Extremely accurate and fun to shoot.I think I did good.

I paid $75 for mine-yup, the chrome one.. The previous owner (former trapshooter too) got busted for shooting a groundhog at his back yard within city limits. He was so peed off he sold it to me cheap. Sits in the gun cabinet with many others!!

I've got a small wooden block sitting on my desk with a .22" hole in it. It's one of the 100,004 blocks that Tom Frye hit with a Nylon 66 to break Ad Topperwein's aerial record.

I used to have 5 or 6 of these. They made several different color combinations. Also FIE imported one from China that looked a lot like it. I still have one black and chrome one and a model 76 lever action in brown and black. They also made a couple of different bolt actions, model 10, and maybe a 12. Some were clips and some were tube feeds. The first 22 I ever owned was a black and chrome and I tried to shoot it just like my shotgun knowing that I had about 15 shells to shoot to hit something. The first real gun I had was an Ithaca model 66 in .410.

Well,I don't think I got to much damage from what I paid for it.I shined it up and gave it a nice bath,looks really nice.I stuck a 3x9 cheap scope on it and it shoots as good as I need.Thanks for the comments on the little jewel,it is a fun shooter.I had forgotten that the record was broken with one of these shooting the little blocks of wood.Says a lot for reliability! Thanks for the comments and reading the post.

One of my pride and joys is the Remington Nylon 12 bolt action that occupies valuable space in the gun cabinet. It looks close to new!!

Mine was stolen years ago. I loved that gun. They are available at Cabela's from time to time in their gun room for about $350.
