I am trying to restore an old revelation model 110 from western auto. Previous research has indicated that this is a marlin 81. I have pretty much confirmed this by looking at the schematic on Numrich. The rifle is not tube fed nor does it have a removable magazine. There is no hole in the stock for a magazine nor for a tube. There is a cavity in the stock under the receiver but nothing is there. It seems to me there should be some kind of tray to lay the bullet otherwise I have to put the bullet in the barrel which is quite difficult with my fat fingers and so it usually falls into the cavity. Something is missing but I don't know what. Can anyone help me with what I need and where I might get it?

Sounds more like an early Model 101 before they added the loading throat. Or maybe someone replaced the stock on your gun? The 81 was not a single shot rifle, but the 101 was basically an 81 in single shot configuration. If you have a 101 it may be missing the feed throat, or be an early one without a feed throat. You can buy this item for under $4 from Numrich, but they are out of the attaching screw. Need to find or make a screw.

I have checked the schematic on Numrich. This is definitely not a 101. I must conclude that this gun may have been modified from its orignal configuration. Either the stock or the barrel have been replaced. Thanks for your help.

On second inspection this gun had a magazine tube but everything associated with the tube and the cartridge carrier is missing. I have a 21 3/4" barrell. The cartridge carrier and the outer tube are out of stock and I am unsure of the complete list of parts I would need to order to return to original configuration. I guess I am out of luck.

Does your barrel have any dovetail cuts for a magazine tube? Or was it once a clip type magazine? Either way, I believe it is modified, and at this point it would be too costly to return it to original. What I would do is make a hardwood filler to slip into the stock and not allow cartridges to drop into the void. One could carve it to shape, so it actually worked similar to a feed ramp, and allowed the bolt too pass over it. Then it can be fired as a single shot without all the fumbling. If you had a groove shaped into the block you could lay the round in the groove and the bolt would push it forward into the chamber.

It does have the dovetail cut outs for the tube ring and the hole in the takedown fitting for a tube. I agree with your recommendation. I am going to make a tray to lay the bullet on. Thanks
