The AR has some tape on it and it was also painted at one time, with some still on barrel. It will be removed before it is sold. Only 200 rounds have been fired through it and it was carried along as a back-up. It will shoot 40 gr up to 75 gr. under 3/4 inch or better. I prefur to hunt with bolt action rifles and have bought another bolt gun to use as back-up so i no longer have use for the AR-15.
