Shilen DGA

I just bought a Shilen DGA action with a 223 bolt face. However, the bolt is not equipped with an ejector, even though there is a hole in the bolt face for one. Will the ejector plunger, ejector spring, and roll pin for the Remington Model 700 work in the DGA bolt?

Re: Shilen DGA

The Remington parts will most likely fit. If not these parts are simple to make. I use drill stock (old drill bits) or stainless tig rod to make the pins and then cut a spring from a Brownells spring assortment.

If the gun is a varmint or mainly a target use rifle I kind of like them without an ejector. I have a Bat action on my bench right now for a Chey Tac single shot hunting rifle and the bolt face is not even drilled for an ejector.

Only accurate rifles are interesting.
