Trying to find a mag for this 1960's .22 (six rd) S/L/LR. The more research I do the more confused I get. From what I can tell it was made for Western Auto by either Mossberg or Savage and is one of these models:
Savage 15 or 120
Mossberg 350, 250C or 353
Can any one help me clear this up?

I can't seem to find a Revelation or Western Auto 125A in any of my books.  I did find a Western Auto 125 on Numrich guns parts.  You may have already checked here but check out this link and see if it matches.  They do have a magazine in stock.

I did research on one of the Revelation rifles I was looking to buy a while back. One thing I found said:

"The Revelation Model 125 is a variant of the Mossberg Model 353."

I can't confirm for sure, but the look alike on Numrich. Might compare the mag part #.

Hopefully this narrows down the models. These "store guns" were notorious for being a cheaper (cheaper wood for stocks was one big thing) version of a popular model, but sometimes they would switch up makers and not swap the model name or number. I have seen that talked about some. Some of the books seem to not even make footnotes about these models.

Mossberg 350, 250C

 

I'm finding some of those cross reference numbers come as bolt and semi-auto.  What is yours, does it look like this?

I see the dilemma.  Mossberg cross reference numbers come up as semi-autos and Savage numbers come up as single shot bolt actions.

For what it's worth, I found this on fleabay:

Western Auto Revelation 125A Rifle Barrel, .22 SHV, L, LR
 

This is a blued barrel for the Western Auto Revelation 125A bolt action rifle, .22 SHV (high velocity), L, and LR caliber. Will also fit the Mossberg 353 rifle.

I saw that too.  Numrich schematics show it listed as a Western Auto model 125, no "A". The schematics for the 125 and the 353 are identical and both of those rifles are semi-autos.

And 10 Round LR vs 6 or 7 rd S,L,LR...

Also, I should add that the original mag was  adjustable and had a small clip that moved fore an aft to adjust for cartridge length. The clip has gone missing.

      I need some opinions on some items i want to buy without end up wasting money.
      I need a new holster for my Glock G45 9mm to wear outside the waistline. Maybe something that locks over the back of the slide while in the holster. Any manufacturers i should consider?
      I need a rifle case for my AR. It has a 16" barrel and 32" total in length. Id like to have enough space for the rifle a side arm and a couole of mags. Ive seen plano, pelican, savior nanuk and case club on amazon. Looking for something sturdy but not something i need to spend a arm and a leg on.
      Finally im looking to buy a "tactical" magazine ammo box to store my 5.56 mags in maybe 9mm as well. Cant seem to find a quality one, prefer metal instead of plastic.
      Thanks in advance.

      I am looking at getting a 22LR pistol to introduce / teach my daughter about handguns (also for plinking as ammo is too expensive at the moment).
      My local FFL has a used Sig Mosquito Sport for sale. I like the feel holding it and I like Sig pistols. 
      Does anyone out there have experience with this particular handgun? 
      Also, what are thoughts on it's retail value?
      Thanks, 
      Briggs.

      I just picked up my first (well, second, since I already bought the .22 LR training analog) “budget AR-15”; a Smith and Wesson M&P15 Sport II with the Crimson Trace CTS-103 on it. 
       
      I don’t want to go crazy with it, but adding a weapon light a bit closer to the muzzle, gaining a little real estate on the hand guard and having some mounting options would be nice, but that stock hand guard...
      I was told that if I want to keep it “budget” and stay off the gunsmith’s bench, I would need to work around the stock gas block with the integrated rail, but that options were out there.
      This is not a brand new model, so I’m hoping someone might have a recommendation for a good hand guard upgrade on this one?
      Thanks in advance!!
