Does anyone know the procedure for disassembling a Remington Nylon 66.
I've looked on the web and found parts diagrams and lists.
Just haven't found the correct procedure to take it apart.

I've had this gun for years - it was out on loan to a brother-n-law.
Came back with a broken bolt handle.

It's been years since this gun was broken down and given a good cleaning.
I had a bear of a time getting it back together then.
It hasn't been used that much over the years due to other rifles that I have.

Thanks in advance.

J B Wood wrote a 22 Rifle disassembly book (published by Gun Digest) that shows how to take it down to the last pin and screw and then put it back together again.

yeah, they are a PITA. I did one about 32 years ago, dont remember much about it, other than swearing I'd never bother with it again. contact the techs at Brownell's Supply, they will know where to send you for more help, if they can't help you directly.

u could also ask at CSP forums,and at HomeGunsmithing forums. Some pretty good smiths at either place. Pistolsmithing forums has guys that have worked on everything, too.

Thanks Guys.
I'll try there.

They are a PITA - that's why I didn't strip it down for so long.
Now I have to though.

I would think that Remington would gladly send you the disassembly - assembly instructions for one of their rifles. They may charge a bit or maybe do it for free.

I got such directions from Marlin once, and they sent a letter with the instructions asking me to send in a small fee - which I gladly did.

I figured out the hardest part.
The Bolt handle pulls right out - I didn't remember that.

After that I got apart with no problems.

I pulled metal reciever off and could not believe the gunk that was in that rifle. I am truly surprised that gun functioned so well.

I cleaned it out quite abit without stripping it down all the way.
Putting it back together only took a few minutes.

Am going to try to run to the club over next couple days to make sure of function. I hate sweeping up the loose spent rounds at our HQ indoor range.

yep, aerosol cleaners, or solvents and blow nozzle, q tips, etc, can do a lot without disassembly, but it's hard to know what parts in a nylon 66 might be harmed by what chemical. :)
