Hello Ron.

The Western Auto Revelation shotguns were actually manufactured by Mossberg and simply sold under a different store brand name. Based on the model number that you provided, you most likely have a Western Auto model 310A or 310AB which would be equivalent to a Mossberg model 500A or 500AB. You can view the entire store brand crossover list here:http://www.e-gunparts.com/crossref.asp

Check out the next site for a brief overview of Mossberg and the value of their guns:

Most of the store brand guns like Western Auto have very little value and they are not usually listed in the blue book due to the low values and high number of them on the market. They are typically only good for sentimental reasons or apractical shooting, assuming of course that they are still in good shape and are safe to shoot. If in doubt then have it checked out by a local gunsmith prior to shooting it.

Hope this helps.
