Nylon 66 Disassembly

I have had a Nylon 66 since 1968 (H.S. graduation present). I would appreciate a copy of the disassembly instructions/manual if possible.

I need a manuel for a nylon 66, though its not a nylon, its a remake of one. I t has CBC on it. I was told that it's "like" a chevy and GMC. Same maker and what not. If true or not, I think that a manuel is a step in the right direction. Uhh, also I toke it out to shoot and while I was firing at a target to sight it in ( using federal hollow points ) my scope, it jammed on the 5th shoot. After I cleared the jam, I went to "charge" the rifle and it went off. So any suggestions would be great.

My email is: [email protected] thanks guys!!

Interesting Thread

I had an Apache Black model years ago, great gun. I had worked on several Nylon 66s and the only problem I ever found was a tendency for a crack to appear between two pin holes in the receiver area. I don't think it was a serious problem but several guys wanted theirs fixed so I used JB Weld.

Wish I had mine back.

Me Too!

I have an old 66 that is shooting doubles and then jamming...I need to get in to the little beast and then get it put back together. Is there a source for parts?

If I had known having parents would have been this much trouble, I wouldn't have had any!

I have had my 66 for a LONG time. No problems yet.

Keep her clean and shoot the sumbitch.

Nylon 66 was a fun little rifle. Mine was Mohawk brown and I wish I still had it.

If you get it back together and you have a single-shot (first shot is fine, but bolt closes on an empty chamber) take it back apart and turn the feed ramp around. It’ll fit in there backwards, look right, but doesn’t work.
Keep smiling ... it'll just make 'em wonder what you're up to...

Nylon 66 disaasembly instructions.

Hi been reading posts on how to break down a nylon 66 for cleaning. I see most folks dont recommend disassembly but after 40 years, and 4 teenage boys, this must need a good cleaning.

Any help would be greatful Thank you, Dale

Disassemble the trigger assembly AT YOUR OWN PERIL. Put the safety on before you take the cover off. if the trigger pulls, you will join the many before you to go to the gunsmith with a grocery bag of parts. Maybe I'm just a chicken, but there should be no reason to disassemble that far.
