The Nylon 66 era, also had a 10 round magazine version, called the Mohawk 77. I have had both. They even had a lever action version and a bolt action nylon. They had brown, black. and green versions and some nickel plated. I sold my Mohawk about 10 years ago for $299 to a fellow that hunted forever wanting one. He was ecstatic to finally get a nice one. If you really want one, there is a guy in Tulsa, Oklahoma who specializes in them, buys them all over the country, repairs them and sells them. I once saw him display maybe 20-25 at a gun show, so if anyone has a nice one he would be the guy. So, Google Nylon 66 Tulsa. Chuck Hawks wrote a nice article about them. Remington (Rem.) Nylon .22 Rifles; Nylon 66, 76, 77, 10, 11, 12 (chuckhawks.com)I've never warmed to the Ruger 10/22. I can't say why, given it can be customized so many different ways that there may not be two identical 10/22s on the continent, but it has always left me cold. With the exception of my AR-7 survival rifle, all of mine are vintage steel and walnut from the '50s or earlier.
I am keeping my eyes open for a Nylon 66, because the first perfect score I ever shot, I shot at Scout camp with one. Handy little rifle. I've heard there is a variant of the Seneca Green stock rifles that takes detachable box magazines, but I've also heard they are unreliable and prone to FTF problems.
But this new Winchester .22 interests me. It has a simplicity to it I find attractive. I'll have to look for one at the local gun shop.
While they were great they were a pain to work on. As I recall, it took three hands to get the action back together because springs and parts had to fit, so so. The first time took me an hour. There was a saying in gunsmith circles that went something like, " I have had more Nylon 66s brought to me a bag, than all others combined". This new Winchester solves all those problems. Looking forward to the review on this one. I always prefer the reviews here over the gun rag reviews.
