    Does anyone know what scope Remington installed on the Nylon 66 package offering. And possibly which years they did this! Thanks

    I had 2 nylon 66s That I bought with scopes. Both where just old school 4x non sealed pos . One was a tasco the other a bushnell. The mounts where cheap see through style.
    The metal cover the scope mounts to was almost useless for mounting anything.
    Don't know if you found this yet. I sold my nylons few years back and found out some info here.

    I'm not sure Remington ever offered the 66 with a scope. I think that Kmart had a deal where they sold a 66 Seneca Green/scope package. Probably a Tasco.

    i just found a nylon 66 w/original scope on one of the online sellers, i think gunsamerica iirc, and he's showing a tasco box in the photo array. photo is below. ok, he could put the scope in any box he wanted but since this rifle sold for over $800 when the auction was over and the smoke cleared, i'm gonna assume it's correct. just passing the info on, not sayin' it came with the tasco.

    I collected nylons for awhile I still have quite a few some were sold with Tasco scopes and slings straight from Remington. There use to be a nylon collector's forum.

    I bought my Nylon 66 new in 1972, and it did not come with a scope.

    Paid $49.95 for it.

    Probably 30-35k rounds through it, still runs like a top.

    they had scope package deals. Although mounting a scope on the loose stamp steel sleeve over the receiver was just about as usless as the Chinese sks cover scope mounts

    Thanks that confirms what I had read in a few articles. Now if I could just find out exactly what scope they used. I have a beautiful 1967 Mohawk Brown that I'm Cleaning up and Restore for my granddaughter when she's old enough and would like to have a correct scope which would have been supplied to Remington on a package deal.

    Sorry, I don't know - i lifted the text right from the Shooting Times page. It looks like that article came from this book as it seems to be exactly the same:
    History of Remington Firearms

    Edit: The scope seems to have been made in Japan and imported into the US as many bargain optics were in that timeframe. I wonder if MUA is "Medical U & A" - while they now seem to be mostly medical devices, they do have some optical lupes in their product line. "Universal MUA" might be the full brand name if the importer/exporter companies even if it wasn't this particular company.

    I have three 66's and one came with a Tasco that appeared to be original.... The Kmart gun is not a 66. It's a 77 and it isn't seneca green... different green with blue streaks in it.... nice looking gun.
