I think you spotted the Savage barrel also.
You must be doubled over considering the conditon of the Colt's you have run across and owned.
Even though this seller is whack, I am sure that if, and when, you were to sell your WWII M1 TSMG, you would not be limiting yourself to a marginal profit on your original $7k investment. Unless you pass down your good fortune of buying a TSMG below market value to the next owner?

From those pictures how would one rate the finish on the receiver for example?

I'm not sure that is even a Savage made barrel. It looks like it might be a current Numrich barrel. Also the seller states the barrel is 11 1/2 inches. The original barrels were 10 1/2 inches. I guess he means with the compensator. The barrel shown has 23 fins, all WWII made barrels I have seen have 28 or 29 fins.

You're on it! The rings don't even extend to the end of the vertical grip! The guy couldn't even susbstitute a Savage for the original Colt barrel. It's a Numrich, or worse. This is a $15K to $17K gun with the extras!
The "Midas" TSMG managed to get $85K, only because of the rediculous media exposure hatched by J. Curtis Earl since 1973. This Colt #6008 does have some legit history to it. It was owned by E.E. Richardson, Auto-Ord salesman. Herigstad has it listed as 98% condition in his book, but he is just repeating the condition described in the sale advertisement back in 1995. But that kind of peripheral history would not demand $98K, regardless of the fraud perpetrated with the "Midas" gun. He also wants $27K for a NAC gun! What is that figure based on?
Not being able to see all of the receiver from the photos, i.e. under the butt stock frame, other end of actuator slot, inside wear, magazine well, etc, it would be difficult to render an assessment. But from what is shown, it would be safe to say under 94%.
