I assume the new barrel is what he is talking about. But - that means the gun was demilled in another country - like Europe somewhere. The French (and Brits, to I believe) welded up barrels, and with a new barrel and bolt you could make it work. They did not cut the recievers, just bolts and mag lips.
All said, where did this come from? And most importantly - where is it now? I assume it is in the US, and I assume it is registered. In which case....
My guess would be $18K for a 28 these days, with the rewatting being as I have described. If it was a cut and welded reciever, I would depreciate it about a grand or two. Just my guess... I do remember a rewatted M1 going for $16.5 recently, though.

From what we have discovered, 1928A1 WW2 dated about 1942 - 43. British proof marks, 50 rnd Bridgeport drun - unused, 3 30 rnd mags mint in mint 1944 USMC case. Everything look original and unscrewed with.
Currently on form 4 in Louisiana. This is a consignment weapon for a local customer.
