    Bit of a 'barn find', that. It has really nice looking wood and should refinish great.
    Coincidentally, I won a Revelation 150 at auction a few days back. Not at all the bolt action I've been looking for but it caught my eye and I just couldn't let it go. It's on a slow track to my door so I suspect, as fast as you work, that you'll have yours done before I get mine. :)

    I'm in no hurry. Here are the auction pics.

    Yup, don't see many of those scopes. Definitely one of the things that sold me on it.

    You should post a few pictures of yours when you get is stripped and again when it's finished. Make a great before & after.

    I actually have 3 of the original scopes that came with the Glenfield/Marlin 60's. I plan on posting pics as I go along but sometimes forget to take them.... I will keep ya'll posted. I have to finish a 1911 job and my Ruger 10/22 (the other .22lr). I redesigned the stock and used an aluminum rod to give it a different look. Once those are done I will get started on the Rev.
