I've never held a 61 Navy in the flesh -- which, of course, makes me want one bad. I love my '51 even though it can be a PIA, but the 61 series is so graceful.
rem '58s are like the jeeps of cap and ball, they're dependable, ugly and everywhere.
Cause there aren't as many out there????
I guess that's a chicken/egg thing. If folks bought them, they'd be out there. I noticed the '61 is much pricer than its equivalent--which must be due to supply and demand... (as if I'm an economist or something).
i never see '51s used and '60s are like hens teeth.
