Gloss:
The Winchester Model 61 was developed as a modern, hammerless 22 caliber rim fire repeating rifle, incorporating all of the modern features of this type of arm. This model sold in reasonably satisfactory quantities, although handicapped to some extent by the much earlier introduction of the hammerless action by competitive manufacturers. About 342,001 were made (Watrous: 1966). This experimental slide action rifle was never adopted as the Model 61, due to the infringement of a Browning patent made in Belgium.
