    I looked at a rifle in a pawn shop the other day and from visibly looking at it it looks like a Savage action but the barrel has a smooth nut and the name on it is Revelation . The rifle seems to be in fair condition but the bolt is hard to lock up about 2/3s down on the lockup . Trying to put an age on it is tough, the gun has a polished blue barrel and action and a cheap scope . I was guessing early 70's !! Can anybody help ?

    Did a quick google search. Looks like you may have a mossberg sold by western auto.

    They also rebranded some Marlin Levers and while they are not top of the line, the levers were decent.
