Here's some Shilen action trivia....

On the side of the action, you will see the engraving that reads Shilen DGA or DGA-M.

What does "DGA" stand for?

Actually, my action is pre-DGA lol. No markings except for "Shilen" and "60". I'll post some pics in a few.

Re: Shilen action questions

Here's the pics. It's a 6mm International, on a Shilen action, with a 27" SS barrel (1:13" twist). The barrel is in like new condition, internally. Sorry the pics aren't the greatest...

It sure is pre-DGA...

They refined the "60" and called it the DGA...

The Shilen actions were quite popular with the BR crowd.

I'll try to find a picture of mine, and post it here so you can see the differences..

This was an old benchrest rifle (or built to be), and actually (I talked to Shilen the other day) the "60" is the serial number, not the model. This action didn't have a model number lol.
