If the XCR finish was bead blasted, the value is that of an SPS. The finish on an XCR is what makes the rifle EXTREMELY corrosion resistant, more so than anything but titanium. Bead-blasting it would dull the reflections but it would also destroy the corrosion protection. (The correct way to dull the reflections is with paint/gun-coat.)
I could be interested as I'm looking for a .338 cary-rifle, but my offer would depend on what the finish is.
Please email close-ups of the finish, especially the areas that have flaws: firstname.lastname@example.org
