View Full Version : Revelation Shotgun Information

May 23, 2005, 11:42 AM
I just acquired a Revelation Shotgun, and I was hoping to get more information on this shotgun. I know absolutely nothing about shotguns so any info would be of great help! It is a Revelation Model 336, it also says Proof tested 410 Bore -3 inch chamber-. I have searched and searched and I cannot find anything about this shotgun. Thank you for any help!

Revelation was a house brand for the Western Auto chain of stores. According to one of my references your Model 336 was manufactured by Springfield, and corresponds to their Model 951.

Good luck, and good shooting!

Revelation is a brand name used by Western Auto.
Like Sears, Wards, and other big chain stores, Western Auto sold guns made by gun companies, with their brand name on them.

My records show the Revelation 336 as being a single shot, bolt action shotgun.
This was actually made by Savage-Stevens and was made in both single shot and magazine models.
Savage owned a number of brand names and this gun was sold under a number of model names, including:
Stevens Model 58C
Springfield Model 18C
Stevens Model 38A, 58,A, B, and M-51
Springfield Model 951.

The Western Auto Revelation Model 336 version is listed as being the Springfield Model 951.

Gun Parts Corporation http://www.e-gunparts.com sells all parts for these guns.

Thank you so much for the information, that really helps me out a lot! Is there anywhere I could find the value or the date of manufacture or a serial number for this gun? I tried googling it, but I did not come up with much.

There is a cross-reference section in the back of the Gun Parts Corp. catalog that is quite informative. It's where I get my info.
