he offered me 150 bucks for it as is without the scope
That may be "pretty much destroyed" in your eyes, but it's nothing in the eyes of an experienced gunsmith (provided the magnafluxing shows no defects), or the eyes of some one that loves reviving the "tired" and "destroyed" rifles out there.
It shouldn't need a new barrel; just a rechamber and set-back. (Turn some metal off the face of the chamber and the seating face, run a reamer into the chamber to make up for the metal removed from the bolt and barrel, and thread it back into the action. With a good job, no one will ever know the difference.)
