It has been completely messed with. The most valuable parts (original sling and bayonet) are repops. Jeepers!

Wow!!  Amazing.  He really should have let it alone, but it's too late now.

Maybe some uninformed buyer will show up.

Never hurts to ask, does it?

More collectables from the same pick a daisy site as the beater 40 is from (using the term 'collectable' rather casually. There are a few nice guns but the bulk of what I saw were not "museum quality", more like middle of the road eBay type fodder for the most part) https://pickingadaisy.com/" rel="nofollow - https://pickingadaisy.com/
 
I shouldn't talk disparagingly about someone's collection but when they list something like that 40  for $3K, you have kind of left yourself open for critical review.

Wishful thinking and marketing.
The 40 isn't that rare a gun. Among the military Daisy's the 140 is more difficult to find.
If you open it up to the whole line of Daisys there are many other rarer more desirable guns.

I sold a 140 recently for 65 bucks. It had the sling and the ammo box cover in the stock. It was far from mint but it was a good shooter.

The Model 140 only came with a wood stock and forearm.  It does not have the compartment in the stock with the sliding door for ammo.  With all due respect, I think you may have sold a Model 141 or 142.  They had the compartment in the stock with the door.  However, their stocks were "plastic".  Both models came with a sling.

Yes, a big difference between the 140 and 141/142 in looks and rarity.
The 140 had a 'bolt' like a bolt action rifle that served as a safety.
It may have ben the first safety on a Daisy BB gun.
The forearm also went almost to the muzzle like the model 40 but it was a two piece stock.
I think it was the first model to use the 'wide' frame.

You're right, it was a 141.

I saw this the other day myself. My personal opinion, at that price, is yes. Not saying it isn’t nice but the price is WAY off for a reconditioned, incorrect sling & bayonet. At least he was honest about the bayonet in the description.

Just noticed the same seller the fuse mentioned in the OP is selling a copper Red Ryder for $2K. I sold one almost as nice recently, but I can tell you I didn't get anywhere near that for mine! https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Red-Ryder-BB-Gun-1st-Model-1940-Cooper-Bands-Great-Shooter-Tested/223389747626?hash=item34031109aa:g:9KMAAOSwE1tcZIoq:rk:4:pf:0" rel="nofollow - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Red-Ryder-BB-Gun-1st-Model-1940-Cooper-Bands-Great-Shooter-Tested/223389747626?hash=item34031109aa:g:9KMAAOSwE1tcZIoq:rk:4:pf:0

I sold my copper banded RR in 80% condition for $375 two years ago. It was as nice as any I have seen. I felt it was a fair price. 
Ebay is a wild card player for sure.

I just purchased about a 7 copper band, for $200. I seldom buy Red Ryder bb guns. The guy is dreaming.

Here's a Daisy model 74 listing (they sell new for ~ $40, I bought a referb for $22)
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dasiy-model-74/283407312452?hash=item41fc646644:g:160AAOSw7R9b-1xL" rel="nofollow - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dasiy-model-74/283407312452?hash=item41fc646644:g:160AAOSw7R9b-1xL
 
TLDR- $170 delivered, gun's used.
