    Thumbs up Western Auto Revelation 120 Makeover

    Here is the latest makeover of the Model 60 rifles that were given to me. This one is a Revelation 120. It seems to have more metal parts instead of the plastic thats often used for takedown of the rifle. The front sight is dovetailed in. Nice model overall.

    This rifle was in bad shape. The receiver was a mess and filthy. The bluing was worn and rusting. The stock was cracked in two pieces. So, I cobbled a plan together.

    The barrel, sights, and screws were parkerized. The butt pad was renewed by sandblasting it. The receiver was stripped and glass beaded. I also glass beaded the showing side of the bolt (I usually polish, but decided to go for a matte look). The stock was glued and screwed together. I then coated it in truck bed lining for a nice grippy black look. I polished the magazine tube as well.

    All in all, I think it turned out nicely considering it was essentially a lost cause. I had everything on hand, so I didn't spend any money on it specifically.

    The new owner is very happy with it. He is a big gun collector and said he likes guns with a story and where someone poured effort into it.

    Hope you enjoy.
