Fun little rifles. IIRC, extremely dirty little rifles, and a bear to strip and reassemble. Spray gun cleaner is your friend.

Once you shoot it you have to marry her. Think long and hard about that decision.

Haha funny guys. Well went out shooting today and it shot very well. And i may add it was very acurate for not being shot in about 5 or so years!
I will post pictures of it and my other toys soon

Fact! I bought one for my middle son. It took 2 hours to clean and an hour to get back together. That return spring is ridiculous.

You do gotta keep some o them wee lil guns clean. Bout 20 yrs ago at the club I belong to this fellow I'd been seeing there for a number of years had brought his Nylon 66 to shoot. He regularly cleaned the barrel. But on this day his gun started to smoking while he was shooting. The smoking stopped on its own. We helped him give it a very detailed cleaning. He's very lucky nothing was damaged. There was so much unburned powder on the inside that after we got it all cleaned out it was a ( I want to say quarter sized pile ) but probably about the size of a nickel, made a pretty fire when lit. Memories, what can I say.

yes patterson when i got home i cleaned it very well and i was amazed at the amount of stuff that came out, and when it came to the spring i found a little trick that took about a minute to put it in. I just took a screw driver and slowly fed the spring in a couple nothces at a time and it went in like butter. And Gun Scrubber and 0000 steel wool is my friend when it came to cleaning
