    Default Replacement or aftermarket stock for a Rem nylon 66

    Not sure how it got broke, but have a large crack in my black nylon 66 stock. I have not been able to find a source for another stock. Anyone know of any around? Thanks

    Not going to like the price, but I found this on ebay. I'm sure you know they have become collectable. I just found this googling.

    Yeah thanks, I did see that. $200+ for a "heavily scratched" stock... I think I paid $69 bucks for the rifle new! In the mid to late 70's...Apache black stock.

    I have one in black also. Their getting hard to find and pricey when you do. Good Luck!!

    I would also post an Ad on the 24hr campfire, their classifieds get a ton of views.

    Tough to find a good one. Remington hasn't had any for ten or fifteen years now. It may be just as cheap in the long run to buy a replacement rifle.

    Not sure how bad your damage is, but after some reading, I found this product was recommended for repairs. I read that most epoxy will not stick to the Zytel.

    You might also want to call Williams Gunsight. (http://www.williamsgunsight.com/)

    They stock parts for just about everything....and I trust them.

    OH...MY...GOD. I had no idea those things were so valuable. As I mentioned the OP's similar post in the swap n sell, I have one all in pieces. I wonder what is the best way to sell mine off-whole or in parts?

    Here is one that needs parts but the stock looks good: http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...Item=374411689
    It has a buy it now price but I have called guys like this before over the phone and what they might take is less.

    Here is some advice I found:
    Best options is to weld the area back up using the original stock as filler. The melting point of nylon 66 is 380-400 deg F. You can use a air heat gun for best results.

    Start off by beveling the edges and cleaning them by either media-blasting them or light sanding. Then use Acetone to clean before welding.

    You can also try Devcon II (not the Devcon 2 ton). It is designed for Nylon.

    You can get additional pointers by googling HK SL-8 conversions to G36 where the rear end is replaced.

    Thanks again, GrassLakeRon... That is the imitation Nylon 66. And the guy wants $ 219 for it!!! I'm not sure the clone stock mates up with the real thing.
    I think the only way to do a solid repair on the stock is to remove the butt off the stock and get at it from the back side as well as the front. Thanks for the info on the Devon II...
