    Collector value is less for in-complete units (no hand guard) and more with the bayonet.  I think I have seen a list of serial numbers but that was a long time ago.  Fakes exist for collectibles.

    According to the BB, the serial number is in the correct range. Besides the missing parts. Overall condition and originality. Would be a major factor, in fair market value. Need quality close-up photos. For help in valuation. 

    The 520-30 was the most common of the Trench Guns, according to the BB. Because of this, even with the correct replacement parts. It would have to be Original/excellent, to be worth big bucks.

    I sold my Winchester Model 97 Trench gun without the handguard / bayonet attachment and a replacement forend and magazine tube for $550 a year ago.  It takes a collector to pay the price.  Good luck.
