Description: Early Shilen DGA single-shot varmint rifle (serial #4XX)in .222 Remington. I purchased this rifle from the original owner who stated that he had put 200 rounds through it before he put it away until I bought it. I see nothing on the rifle to dispute his statement. I contacted Shilen and they looked up the original purchase order for me. The rifle was built in the mid 70's with a heavy stainless barrel, two ounce trigger with no safety and hand bedded with no glass bedding compound. The rifle remains in this condition today. It has not been messed with and the numbers on the barrel, action, recoil lug and bolt all match. The original owner added the 24X Leupold scope (fine crosshair reticle) with sunshade (purchased new by him) and used Redfield Sr. rings and bases to mount it. The used value of the scope and mounts alone is over $500.00. The condition is 98% plus. There are no blemishes on the stock that cannot be removed with a little rubbing compound (small nicks from being stored in a gunsafe), no marks at all on the Leupold scope and one small hairline scratch on the left side of the action. The first load I tried in the rifle (Lapua case, 40 gr. V-Max, CCI BR-4 primer and IMR4198 powder) averaged .220 inch for ten 5-shot groups. I have put 250 rounds of this load through the rifle since I bought it. I do not turn the necks with this load, and I use a standard Redding neck die. Shilen does not make these rifles any more, and I would not sell this one if I were not purchasing a new home. Three day inspection is from the time the rifle arrives at your local FFL dealer's. If the rifle is disassembled or shot during this time, the sale is final, PERIOD! Buyer will pay actual cost of U.P.S. shipping and insurance. The wood stock looks even better than the pictures show and this rifle will shoot with just about any cusom made glass-stocked varmint rifle all day long. Thanks for looking and good shooting!
