My stepdad needs to drum up some cash and has a 1903 Springfield barreled action he wants me to sell for him. I don't have it in my possession yet but he has told me what he knows about it. The serial number dates it as a 1918 manufacture. It is supposedly unfired with cosmoline on it and some light rusting without pitting. My question is this, does it have any collector value as it is or just the value of an old hunting rifle without a stock. Would I be better off getting an inexpensive sporter stock for it, an original military configured stock, or just selling it without any stock at all. I know that value on these (and any gun) is highly variable due to a lot of factors so I'm just trying to get an idea of which direction to go to help him get it sold for the best price he can within the next couple of weeks.
