Built in conjunction with Remington's then parent company, DuPont, the Nylon line of rifles were the first successful synthetic stocked firearms on the market. The rifle's forend, receiver and stock are made entirely of two pieces of DuPont-produced nylon 6-6 (also known as Zytel), first cemented together and then bonded under high heat and pressure to form one piece. The result is a sleek stock with very slender and attractive lines, a fluted comb, a long and graceful forearm with a black plastic Schnabel tip, and a curved pistol grip with a black cap. These new stocks came with a guarantee not to crack, chip, fade, or peel for the life of the rifle. With the majority of the rifle's internal parts made of synthetic materials as well, the Nylon 66 can operate without any added lubricants, making it especially popular in arctic regions. In addition, Remington's Nylon stocks were found to weigh much less than traditional wooden stocks, while retaining enough accuracy for most varmint-hunting and plinking tasks. A slip-over blued steel cover gives the receiver a more normal appearance and also conceals a pair of stock reinforcing machine screws and nuts. The BD variant of the Nylon 66 features a black stock with a black barrel and receiver cover with black diamond inlays on the forearm and white stock spacers. This lever-action rifle features a brass tubular magazine that runs through the butt stock of the rifle and is loaded through a recess in the plastic buttplate. The rifle includes a Tasco scope RF4x15 scope. Its stock is very good condition and its metal and bore are in good condition.
