They look ok on some guns, e.g., a Winchester 101 pigeon grade trap with a dark stock. Most I’ve seen of the old one’s are hard as a rock. But, beauty is in the eye of the beholder…..

The 1960s brought many fashion disasters, but it also gave us miniskirts. It balances out.

The white line looks good on a Nylon 66. Matches the white diamond on the fore end. A time and a place for everything . . .

https://casetext.com/case/mershon-company-v-pachmayr

This is the real story. It is an interesting read if you want to know what happened and when it happened.


"There came a time in 1936 when, by mutual consent, Pachmayr withdrew from the business, leaving Mershon or the Mershon Company owner of and continuing in the business and possessed of a valid agreement by which Pachmayr agreed not to compete in business with Mershon for thirty months. The agreement was lived up to, but after expiration of the given time, Pachmayr resumed business as Mershon's competitor and made and sold recoil pads without the white line feature or symbol. " "However, sometime in 1945, Pachmayr's pad appeared on the market with the white line exactly as it had been used during the period in which Pachmayr and Mershon were together." So white line pads must have been made in or before 1936. Still ugly to this day.

I’m trying to recall if I have ever heard anyone say a Nylon 66 looked good. Pretty sure I haven’t.

Might be a time and place with nothing.

Best,
Ted

They were pretty accurate though. My dad despised bluejays for some reason and one time one landed on a diagonal support wire for a telephone pole just behind our place on the edge of our small town. He was pretty strict about where I could shoot, but he let me take a crack at it, and he just about fainted when I nailed the bluejay with the Nylon 66. I agree, they weren't much to look at.

That was a bit tongue in cheek. If you like the Nylon 66, you will love the white spacer and the white diamond on the fore end. ;-)

I never wanted a Nylon 66, but they were quite popular in their day. Remington sold thousands of them. They had kind of a space age look, which appealed to some. Some others liked the Ruger 10/22 and the Marlin M1, which looked like M1 carbines, and some preferred the Marlin 39 for its Western look. Now a lot of people buy .22s that look like ARs. As the postman said, "To each his zone."

None of this affects shooting. We don't see the butt while shooting, any more than we see the whitewall tires while driving.

Having killed a pickup load of squirrels with mine, the Nylon 66 looks pretty good to me.

I just removed a factory installed white line spacer from a rare Fox wildfowl. (1 of 39 made).not because it was ugly but because it was too long for me to shoot with my heavy duck hunting jacket. I put the pad in a bag in case the next owner wants to put it back in original condition. If it doesn't work out this year I will have a stock made to my specs and save the original to pass on.
