Default 1903-A3 trade?

This is an A3 that a guy in my unit that wants to trade for my M38 Carl Gustav's 1915 6.5x55 Swedish Mauser. My rifle is complete and range ready. He said the headspace and bore are good to go. I picked my rifle up at a gun show for $425 range. My rifles condition is good, bluing is about 90-95%. Is this a good deal even though it doesn't have a stock? What are your thoughts?

If the bore is bright and clean muzzle gages low and throat gages well and its actually head spaced and sights are square its a even trade. Also if its been drilled and tapped for a scope its not worth that value. If the index marks aren't lined up its liekly the sights aren't either

This is one of those deals where it needs a very thorough inspection.
