    Revelation is a Store name for Western Auto. The 205 is a Mossberg 472. Store branded guns are sold for their shootability or as working guns. They are considered a less expensive version of the parent gun. Cheaper wood was used, the finish was not as well done and other little short cuts. Mechanically they have the same intenrals. The Mossberg 472 is listed in the Standard Catalog at 275 in excellent. The Revelation version, while it shoots just as well, would be worth 15 to 20 per-cent less. Hope that helps.
