    I've got a Revelation .243, believe it was made by Mossberg. Bought it back in the early 70's and not a bad gun at all.
    Good luck with the refinish.

    Muliemaster... Now now... I paid $40 out the door, along with $40 for an old Winchester in the same condition, $50 for a Savage 187 in close to same condition and $50 for a JC Higgins in really good condition. Not bad for a trip to the pawn shop for a refinisher like myself.

    Blackbeard... I will try and keep up on the thread and post pics as I progress. I am finishing a Ruger stock project right now.

    I polished out the rod after I anodized it green. Will probably go with green trigger guard and trigger to match the rod. Not sure what color receiver or barrel yet....
