Remington Nylon 12, 22 S, L, & LR, about $350

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

Brown plastic, actually Nylon, in a wood-grain pattern gives this rare old Nylon 12 a timeless, glossy look. The checkering was useful, and the rifle durable. It was a light and well-balanced rifle, but not many of us thought it was handsome. The full-length stock added good protection to the tubular magazine.

The flat bolt was classy, we thought. It worked easily and smoothly. The rifle had outstanding iron sights. Those who enjoy glossy stocks and white-line spacers will like the look of the Nylon 12. A single screw on the bottom promised a takedown, but it never happened.
The right rear corner held the safety lever. We liked the way this rifle loaded, easily and with excellent safety. The trigger was clean, but a touch heavy. The rifle had excellent accuracy, and it fed and ejected all 22 cases.
The rear of the non-steel front blade was cut sharply to give an excellent sight picture. We thought this rifle would be outstanding with a scope and match ammo. That is bluing damage on the right side.
The rear sight had excellent adjustments for elevation and windage. Rebluing might be the best answer here, as the owner does not intend to sell the rifle.
