Although I honestly believe that Harley doesn't mind all the requests for the 66 instructions, I thought I'd offer a little info I learned about the Remington Nylons (after I too got the manual from Harley).

There's a yahoo group called "nylonrifles." If you join it, they have a number of "files" available online, including .pdfs of articles about these guns, tear down instructions, parts suppliers, tips to cleaning and repair, etc. It just doesn't cover the 66 either but all the nylons--e.g., 76, 10, 11, 12, etc. Worth checking out if you're in the hunt for some specific piece of information.

On behalf of all of us nylon 66 owners who have received the instructions from Harley, here's to ya! Thanks. You gave us that hope we needed after we each brazenly (a/k/a stupidly) tore our rifles down before we knew exactly what the heck we were doing. You saved us all when we each thought we'd done the unspeakable -- permanently ended the life of a favorite plinker. Please don't take my post here recommending another source of information the wrong way. I'm confident you'll still be the go-to guy for lots of future nylon owners as the FiringLine is a great site. Maybe this will let you take a little, well-deserved breather for awhile though--at least from the nylon guys.

Reminington 66 instructions


A big thanks for sending the instructions. Unfortunately, I left them on my email account the night you sent them and my wonderful wife who did not recognize your name deleted the email a day later and sent it to the trash bin.
If there is anyway you please could be so kind as to send those directions one last time, I will print them off the moment they arrive and never (I realize this is a dangerous word to use) ask for them again.

nylon 66 disassembly

Would you be so kind to forward me the assemble/disassemble instructions for the nylon 66. My dad bought this rifle for me 40 years ago. I burnt a many a shell through it as a youth, but it hasn't been used in quite some time and I would like to clean it up and get it ready to pass along.

Just my two cents

The Nylon's trigger group is quite unique. I detail cleaned a Nylon 66 for a friend about 15 years ago. I saved the slave pins that I used to reassemble it with, just in case I had to tackle another one someday. Although I figured out the dis/re-assembly, I sure could have used some instructions back then!

I'm new to the site, but I have a Nylon 66 from my father. I shot through it when I was a kid and my dad cleaned it and could never get it back together. It's now in my posession, and I'd LOVE to show my son how to shoot with it.

Would you please send me the instructions to assemble it?

Also need assembly instructions

My nylon 66, bought new years ago, rarely cleaned, started failing to feed properly. Took it apart - sure lots of parts - and need help. I would greatly appreciate assembly/disassembly instructions. I will gladly provide reimbursement of costs, etc. Thanks. This thread is refreshing and very helpful. I am relieved to see I'm not the only one in trouble.

I just picked up a Model 66 that looks like it has a broken firing pin. Would you please send me the disassembly/assembly instructions.

Thank you!

Could you please send me a copy of the Diss/Ass instructions for the #66
Mr. Nolden. (Mine was taken apart in1981, and the parts were misplaced in a move and relocated only recently. A truly joyous occasion!)
