Revelation 205 30-30 lever

I have been trying to find out when my rifle was made. It was made by Mossberg (model #472PCA?).
Its very nice and looks like a Marlin but with the left side safety lever it's a Mossberg.
It's a model 205 with serial number 912_ _ _ .
Anybody out there that can help please???
Somewhere between 1973/74 and 1979?????

Mossberg Model 472 PCA lever-action 30-30 marked Revelation Model 205. It was made by Mossberg for Western Auto Supply. Model # supposedly changed in 1980.

Another thread with some info:



Thanks, ARFrog. I've been looking for info on this model. Mine is probably about a 90-95% gun, very little wear and clean and shiney. Any idea what it is worth? Rick
