Just picked up this 67 revelation model 200 from a central Florida pawn shop out the door for 275.50 driving at the moment, but can anyone shed any light on the history of this rifle?

Its a store branded Marlin or a Marlin 336 known by another name. Marlin made firearms for several different stores back in the day. I own a Sears Model 45 and a Westpoint Model 33--both are Marlin 336/Marlin 30AS models that were made for other retailers.

AC is the '67 code. One of the many store-brand Marlins made through the decades, and every bit the gun that a Marlin-branded 336 is. $275 is a fine price.

Nice rifle! I like the simple good looks of the store brand Marlins. Enjoy it!

Yes, a store brand made Marlin. Nice condition too, :five:
Have a Sears model 45, like one of the above posters. :flute:
Had a Glenfield that I recently let one of my neighbors talk me out of.
Also made by Marlin.

Welcome aboard!

I just wound up with one of those a few days ago.
Debating on weather or not to make a 307Win out of it.

Lots of guys prefer the "store brands" because of the configurations
they come in (fore-end caps with full length mag tube).
Some guys even collect them.
A Revelation should have a AA serial no. and a W stamp inside the lower tang.
There are many store brands.
A google search will likely give you a list.
Glenfield, Sears, and Revelation are the more common ones.

I have the w in the tang but my serial number prefix is AC

Heck yea, they are better than any new one!
Yep! Some of the store branded 336 rifles have quite a good reputation. The 30TK stands out as a desirable store model.

The are mechanically built with exactly the same quality as any Marlin 336. Sometimes arrangements/combinations are unique to store brands (magazine tube lengths or location of barrel bands) and the store brands don't have walnut stocks.

Some store brands did have wlanut stocks--like my Sears Model 45 and Wespoint Model 33.

im no arborist but I think the stock on this revelation is walnut. I have a current year 336y with the walnut stock and it shares grain pattern and density with my old new rifle
Yes--you are right. There are other store models that were made that had walnut stocks besides the two that I listed.
