Remington did everything right on the 66. It fed, reliably, from a 14-round tubular magazine in the stock, had a good trigger, excellent open sights, shot accurately, and made the AK-47 look unreliable by comparison. I took one to college with me, shot it for four years with any kind of cheap ammo I could find, never cleaned it, and used it in temperatures as cold as 30 below. It never failed. Because the steel bolt rode in a nylon receiver, you never even had to oil it. My only concern for its welfare was that someone would puke on it. There was a lot of random puking back then, since we didn’t have to burden our minds with safe spaces and trigger words and micro-aggressions. If you could hurl with style you had nothing to worry about. But I digress.
