Looks like a 20ga I bought from Western Auto called a "Revelation" in the late 60s, early 70s. I think they were made by Mossberg but Marlin, Savage, etc. all made guns for for Western Auto in those days.

Bottom line is that with the amount of rust on it, it can't be worth much. It looks like it was a cheap gun originally, and with it's condition, it's only good as a decoration.

Hose it down with WD-40. I bet it can be made to shoot again. I love little projects like that. I have several old junkers I’ve rescued like that. I Probably couldn’t get $50 for most of them.

The screw choke makes me think mossberg. But the Western Auto Revelation comment stands out.

WD-40 and 000 steel wool will help you figure it out.

Do they still make Naval Jelly?

Would a bath in a lye solution work? I've used it on cast iron pans to bring them back to life, but thinking it's probably for removal of grease not rust (as I'm typing I remember using vinegar bath to prevent the rust).
Carry on.
