Can anyone ID this 22 Short 'R' headstamp?


#1

My search skills are failing me. I’ve found several lists with a handful of possibilities for an ‘R’ headstamp, but didn’t find any photos to match this particular one. I’m wondering, with no real good reason, if it’s Robin Hood?

Thanks!

The headstamp is on Revelation Brand 22’s sold by Western Auto. I’m not sure who actually manufactured them.

Thank you, Gentlemen. I would have guessed it was considerably older than that, but after looking at the photo in the linked document, there’s no doubt it’s the same R.

Much appreciated,
Cannon
