Brain quit....

What rimfire rifle has a tube magazine that loads from the back of the stock. Marlin? Remington?

The one I have pictured in my head had a synthetic stock and I think a white diamond shaped insert in it.

I'm also fairly certain it hasn't been made for quite a few years.

Remington nylon 66. Semi auto, 14 round tube magazine loaded from the buttstock. Remington made roughly 1 million of them between 1959- 1989

Didn't it come in several different colours? Black, brown and green, green being the least common IIRC. I thought the name was different dependant on colour as well....

There was also a green/blued model (Seneca Green), a Black Diamond, Mohawk Brown, and a Gallery Special (the only model 66 set up for 22 Short ammo). Didnt they also had a Chrome?

Now that you mention it, I'm fairly certain my buddy owns a black one with a chromed barrel....or owned anyway. It's probably been fifteen years or more since I saw it last.

Wood grain plastic. Straight from the era that brought you station wagons with wood grain Mac tack :)

You have something against the Vista Cruiser? One could literally cruise the vistas in that baby....

I think they were a pretty good little rifle (from what I've heard). I remember coveting them in a Remmy brochure in the mid seventies. Unfortunately couldn't afford one at the time.

And that price is for cabelas U.S gun library purchase. Aka overpriced. Realistic pricing is about 250-500 depending on condition, and which model here in the People Republik of Albertastan.

There was a brown one at the Winnipeg Cabela's recently for much less. It was still mildly overpriced IIRC....I hear the green ones command a couple extra bucks as well.

Originally I thought they looked pretty cool, then I found that out and was no longer interested. At all.
