Default Remington '43 1903-03-A3

I got a call from a buddy last night that came a across 03A3 that his friend wants to trade for revolver he has and wants to trade the rifle for a Beretta Bobcat 380 I have. Three-ways aren't always as advertised!

So, here is the rifle. All the parts are stamped with R except the front sight. The barrel looks like it was sanded at some point in the past 50-years. Odd thing is the RA ORD stamp was not stuck hard during manufacturing. The date is clear but only a partial A and the left side of the R can be seen.

Took the rifle apart and found a XA58 stamped on the barrel along with random proof proof marks. The inside of the barrel is bright and shinny.

I have a couple of questions:

1) Value?

2) Any suggestions where in Nor Cal I can get the barrel parkerized? Cost?
