Cimarron's Model 71 Reproduction
 
The Model 71 lever action rifle was a failure for Winchester with less than 48,000 sold from 1935 to 1959, but it has become something of a cult classic on the collector’s market. This replica from Cimarron Firearms is built by Pedersoli to look like a classic Model 71, but it is chambered in .45-70 rather than .348 Winchester.

I wouldn't call the model 71 a failure. It was not really a separate model as it is simply a model 1886 with minor changes. So a gun made from 1886 to 1959 is hardly a failure.
