    The Revelation 316 BB ( sold by Western Auto ) was made by Mossberg, it is one of a multitude of bolt action shotguns made over the years by that firm. It really sounds as if it only needs a good break down and cleaning. If you do not fell comfortable in doing this then take it to a gun smith. for 30 to 50 dollars he will do a professional job. Even if it requires a new bolt ( which I doubt ) it would have to be fitted by a gunsmith to insure proper head space is obtained. This is a good solid working shotgun but be advised the value is not that high, retail is only around 90 to 125 dollars.

    Thanks , RJ I put it in the gun smiths today , he thinks it may be a broken screw, but will know once he opens up the bolt.
    I know the $$$ value is low but its an old family gun and the wood and bluing
    is like new it has been in a gun safe for over 25 years or so.
    Picked up a big boy Henry while I was there in 357/38.
    thanks for the post .... Bud
