    New owner of a Revelation 150

    I just bought a nice western auto revelation 150.
    It is in pretty good shape, and I only paid $70.
    Model # is 69xxxxxx, what does that mean?
    This is my 1st rifle, so any info about it would be appreciated.
    Thank You

    You have a Marlin Model 49 .22 Autoloading Rifle. Yours was Made in 1969 and originally sold for $59.95. 2 piece stock which is unusual for an autoloading Marlin .22. These were also the first unique model produced for a mass merchandiser, so created for western automotive then added to Marlins catalog later. They were produced for 10 years from 1968-1978. Production numbers total 110,422 with 79,458 Model 49's and 30,964 model 49DL's made over that period.

    I would love to see a picture of the rifle if you have the ability. The 2 piece stock IMO keeps with a more traditional Marlin look. Congratulation on your new rifle! Hope this helped.

    I'll add the Model 49 was made in 1968-1970 only, the Model 49DL ran from 1971-1978. This from Brophys' book on Marlins, production numbers as stated above are correct. Mr fixit

    I've got the 49 regular going until 1971...might be a few models creeped over the year line...but only Serial Numbers can show that.
