    Just wanted to pass along a photo of one of my newest projects. Just got done refinishing this Revelation model 115 .22 made by Marlin (57). It's very tight and a great shooter.

    First used a B&D Mouse sander taking it down to bare wood. Then used Minwax Stain. Dried 24 hours then used Minwax Semi-Gloss Poly Urethane Spray. Spraying every 15 minutes for about 6-9 coats.

    There's one of these at the pawn store. What price range are these really bringing in?

    I'd say $100- $200 if it's complete & decent. I think the ones that are 100% are in the $300 range. I doubt if I'll get rid of this one? At least not planning on it!

    I grew up with a Western Auto Revelation 120. Fun gun. Still have it (nearly 40 years later). I enjoy it very much. I enjoy the last round open feature on my son's 795 though. :)

    I have a Model 57 "J.C. Higgins" .22 Magnum made by Marlin sold by Sears. My pop gave it to me on my 12th birthday. That was 55 years ago. He paid $22.95 for it. I passed it on to my son who passsed on to his daughter. It's a little beat up but still drives tacks and shoots like a dream.
