Just had a similiar experience, that worked out well enough. If you haven't already done so, getting an idea/line on a replacement stock, original or reproduction before committing, will put the deal into a more realistic perspective. Thinking the scope doesn't really add value to this deal, and would try to work the price lower. Recently picked up, a 1951 336A in 35 Rem with a bad buttstock for $350 (includes $30 shipping and $20 FFL fee), so would have to say $375 is something worth considering in my book. Once that stock is replaced its more like a $550.00 dollar rifle.

I thought if you had a gun you shot someone with it in defense not used it as a club.
By the time you re-stocked it and did all of that work would it be worth your while at that point?
That is not counting anything that could be wrong besides being used as a bat. Because whatever split the stock could have bent something.
But all that said if I wanted a project I would be all over it like white on rice.
But not being a betting man I would have to think real hard before jumping in on it.

The barrel being drilled for the scope base REALLY!? turns me off.

As if the busted stock was not bad enough, that sling swivel looks in a good position to be in the bulls eye.

$250 gun maybe. It looks rough.

I've seen that one up there for a while. Like what some of the others have said, I think this is one you walk away from.
