Remington Model 700 ADL to DM Conversion?

I've been searching around for what parts would be necessary to convert a Remington 700 ADL to a DM model, and since I don't want to risk a hack job one of the items that I would include is a new stock. I've seen some other people on here talking about doing it (in archived threads), but they never said whether or not they completed the project, nor could I find anyone listing all the necessary parts that would be required for the conversion. In my own searches, I found several of these parts to be quite expensive, so much so that, when you include the price of the stock into the equation, I could easily sell my current rifle and purchase a new one for far less than it would cost to upgrade it.

So I guess my question is, would it be cheaper to upgrade my current ADL rifle to a DM or simply sell my ADL variant and buy the DM model? If it would be cheaper to buy the DM model, what parts would be necessary. I actually have two potential buyers for my ADL model, one offering $400 but I'm not sure if the price is fitting when the rifle has had hardly any rounds through it and is in nearly perfect condition.

And if it makes any difference, it's fires a .270 Win, which is a round I quickly fell in love with.

I think you are right that the conversion would not be cost effective. I looked into converting my Rem. 700 Police to take a detachable magazine, and concluded that while such a thing would be nice to have, the marginal additional utility wouldn't be worth the extremely high cost. Plus, each conversion kit on the market seems to take its own proprietary, non-standard magazine.
