    Western Auto Revelation Model 100

    The Mrs picked up a Revelation Model 100 .22 today. Here's what I know about it. It was probably manufactured by Mosberg. They were sold in Western Auto stores. It's a single shot bolt action rifle and it's old. It doesn't have a serial number, so I am going to guess it may be next to impossible to date. I don't think the scope is original. Anyone know anything about these?

    Yes. The Revelation Model 100 single bolt action single-shot rifle was sold in Western Auto Supply Co. stores in .22 S-L-LR caliber. Those without serial numbers are next to impossible to date. Does that help?

        It looks good.
        I bought a 16 ga single shot Revelation back when I was 14.....no background check, no parental permission. Things have changed.
        Back to the 22 rifle- It does look good. I scowered the net for a couple minutes and saw many references to this gun. One was a short video of a model 100 w/o a serial number. That one was made in 1935. Good luck=

                You are correct it is a Mossberg, it was sold from about 1930
                to about1965. In 1971 the revelation 120 was sold by Western Auto it was made by Marlin and was the predecessor for the Marlin 60.

                My first single shot 22 rifle was bought at Western Auto new but it was stamped Winchester in 1953. And was purchased for me by my Stepfather for use on the farm.

                  The Revelation 120 wasn't a predecessor to the Model 60, it was a model 60. The Model 60 was introduced in 1960. I have a Foremost (JC Penney) version from 1969 as well as several Marlins and Glenfields. Best .22 ever made.

                  But I like yours too Soren, you can't have too many .22's.

                    I actually have one that I bought myself. You must remember when I bought this you didn't have to be 21 or 18 and could also buy a box of 22 bullets for 25 cents for shorts. I went to White"s Auto and Western Auto as we had both in town but Western Auto had the one I wanted and in my price range. I had saved my money working on the farm and wanted a 22 to shoot rabbits and squirrels and birds. I knew the owner of Western Auto and went to church with him also and when I was eleven(11) bought my gun from them still in the box. I will turn seventy on the 29 of this month. I still have the gun and it shoots just as good as it did then. It is not the best ever made but it was my first 22 and I will hand it down to one of my children, or my grandson. I have a lot of guns, but this one has a special place in my heart to me. No it does not have a serial number but i bought it in 1961 when I was 11 years old if that is any help at all. Oh, by the way, I paid less than $20 dollars for it.
