Take off barrels

I'm going to be building a rifle off of a Weatherby Vanguard action. Is there much of, or any market for the original barrel and stock that come off the action? Hopefully I can sell them to help fund the build.

Thanks for the replies.

And usually Howa has those barrels screwed on so freakin tight you have to make relief cuts in the barrel just to get it off so your factory barrel won't have much value anyway.
