Worth on 2 custom rifles? (pics added)

Asked about these on another forum but thought I'd try here also since some of you are pretty knowledgeable on such things. So.... a lady friend has these two to sell and I might consider buying them myself but don't know what they might be worth. If I don't buy them I will sell them for her. First is a Paul Jaeger 300 Win mag with a brown laminated stock built on a Mark X mauser action and the barrel is marked alaskan. The stock is scratched up, and it needs a new butt pad, but the gun is in good shape otherwise. The other is a 280 with a synthetic stock also built on a Mark X mauser action and is marked "Barnes custom shop", the gun is in very good condition. Any info on ballpark value would be great, thanks in advance. I plan on taking them to the range in a week or 2 to see how they shoot.

Thats tough without seeing them, as they were custom built. Jaeger is one of the best, Barnes is a custom shop in Albany Ohio. Pictures would help me take a shot at the value.

Well at least I know what Barnes is now, thought it might have been the bullet people. They're nothing special to look at, if it weren't for the markings I would've thought they were plain factory Interarms Mark X rifles, but I'll see if I can get some pictures up.

Does the Jeager have a detachable scope mount? His detachable mounts were in demand at one time.

Yep, QD mounts. The gun was made in TN as per the barrel, I found out Paul moved from Jenkinstown to TN and then at some point the Co. went out of business. I think this gun may have been a standard offering model, if there was such a thing.

The bluing on the Jeager is better than it looks in the picture. There is no rust or pitting, etc. It's just the stock that's scratched up, and as I said needs a new recoil pad. These guns were obviously hunted with;used for what they were meant for. To me it gives them character and a story to the previous owner even if it dors hurt the value.
