    Hey guys I've got an opportunity to pick up a dura coated 5r mil spec in a bell and Carlson m40 stock. If I decided I didn't use it enough would I be able
    To get 6 or 700 back out of it pretty easy? I'm pretty sure if use it but if not I don't wanna be stuck with it. What's y'all's take on em?

    If it was not duracoated, and if it was in the orignal HS Precision stock, then I would say you would have no issue getting $850 to $1000 for it...With a low round-count.

    But the duracoating limites the market, and so does the M40 stock. Not that those stocks aren't good, as I have several B&C Medalist stocks, but an all-factory 5R will fetch more money because it will expand the market to more buyers, compared to one that has been modified and colored for 1 individual's intended purpose.

    If you could get the duracoating completely off of it, I shouldn't see why you couldn't get $600-700 out of it.

    All coatings are generally applied over an aluminum oxide blasted finish. I wouldn't count on finding the "original" finish underneath the DuraCote.

    It's not a fluted barrel and it's not cerakote.
