Remington nylon 77 Apache bought on auction



Log in to see fewer ads
Just won this on GA auction. Actually saw it at local gunshop before bidding.
It is very nice greenish-black stock with a 10 shot clip.
Won it for $232 also won a very nice older 552 speedmaster for $202.
Will be picking them up on the weekend.
Don't think I did too bad on the prices and especially happy about getting the Nylon 77 Apache. Metal and stock appear 90%.
Will have to post photos later.

There used to be a 12 step program.
Till researchers figured out .. there's no cure.
Its sad news ..i know.
But we have each other for a support group.
Thats the only good news...

Now...
Still working on a deal for a older nylon 77 myself...
I don't know why i want it..
I've only got 20 or 30 in the safes..

My kids are in for one heck of a shock..
When they open the safes.

WELCOME TO THE NYLON CULT

you are our newest member!! you did EXTRA GOOD on both rifles. the Apache 77 is a weird one, made only 2 years, 1988-1989, and were made ONLY to be sold at K-MART. I bought a 95% apache 77 about 4-5 years ago, I got it down to $235. I like the matt dull finish on the metal, but the blue streaks in the stock are kind of ugly. hey, it shoots fantastic, so I can live with it. there are plenty of new 5 and 10 rd Remington magazines available, e-bay and reasonable. some of them have to be slightly modified to fit in the mag well, but it is quick simple mod. I have done five so far and they perform 100%. the 552 was a steal, depending on condition, these are fine man sized .22 autos. if you shoot lefty, you will need the ejection port shield and watch you fingers on the fore end, the left hand bolt WILL BITE YOU. I got it once, never again! YOU DID EXCELLENT, enjoy them both.

My dad gave me a 66 when I was 8 ;-) I think he paid around $50 for it then.

I've seen Model 66's going for $400+ at the local gun shop.

Great rifles, bought my first one in the late 60's for $64 and shot the heck out of it. In the safe but still comes out once in a while. The second I found at a LGS new in the box with all paperwork and pre serial numbers. It is still in the box and unfired.
In the good old days the first one spent is life in the gun rack in the back window of my 56 Ford pickup, all the way from Arizona to Oregon and back! Don't think I would chance that again.
Enjoy!

....but in 92 Kmart was also selling Brazilian made CBC Nylon 66 clones, and Remington stopped production in 1989. So you might have purchased old stock left in the back room, or a CBC rifle.

Please check, and post a picture, I am curious.

And they might be Remington Nylon Apache 77 clip fed models too, which were only made for a couple years very late in the Remington Nylon production years.

At the Nation's Gun Show in Northern Virginia a dealer was asking $600. It was in pretty good shape. Unlike mine my father bought new in 1968. It went through a lot of use and abuse. But it still shoots well, an aged safe gueen.

Nylon 77 Apache

I bought a Nylon 77 Apache Green at the K Mart in Janesville Wisconsin in 1988.It is still NIB and never fired. Their production numbers were estimated to be between 50,000 and 55,000. I also have a Nylon 66 Bi-centennial NIB never fired. I also have 3 other nylons. A 66 SG Seneca Green 2nd year production from 1960, 66 AB Apache Black from 1968, and a 10C 1st year production from 1972. I used to collect Remington .22 rifles but quit in 1989 due to a divorce and the rifles were starting to cost over $100 each. The ex-wife got none of my guns.

I had one with a mag when I was kid, hated the mag fell out a lot. I think it was the green Kmart model.

I have one in brown that is a gallery special, no serial number. This has the stock tube feed and the front connection to be chained down. 22 shorts only. IT came from a closed amusement park in Ohio. The gallery had metal ducks swimming across in water and a variety of other moving targets and was removed about 1964.
It is definitely not for sale.
