The reason the 61 was so late to market was because of the Browning patent--it had to stand on its own merits outside of the Browning patents. Kinda ironic that the Browning trombone never sold here in the states during that time period. A team led by TC Johnson created the 61 in the style of the model 12 shotgun and it was marketed to appeal to adults. My number one rifle, except that I have two of them
The styling is pure class, it has the best balance point of any rifle I've ever toted afield, and the design is rugged enough to continue seeing these rifles, being used, well into the future.
