To give you some idea of how much of a roll Winchester used
to be on back in the good old days,,,,they introduced the Model 40 sometime in 1940,,,,the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor December 7, 1941,,,Winchester probably didn't build a handful of Model 40's after that,,,,and they sold forty thousand
Model 40's. In less than two years.
A more expensive failure was the Super X. Introduced in 1974,,,they probably didn't manufacture any actions after 1978,,,and yet still they sold about eighty five thousand of the expensive, wonderful contraptions anyway. Legend has it Winchester lost about 25 million 1970's dollars on the Super X,,,,and they didn't sell the last ones out of the custom shop until the early nineties.
You gotta sell hundreds and hundreds of thousands of shotguns,,,all at a profit,,, to really make some money. Like Remington selling about ten million 870's,,,and counting.
