The only weapons you can keep are those that you buy or are gifted, etc.  These are added to your inventory and you can only have one of each except with sidearms.

unfortunately not. once you pick up a weapon, you can not get rid of it. you are stuck with it, even if it is the most useless piece of junk ever made.

You can buy a weapon locker that is made available through the Trader Role and get it out of your inventory that way.  .....similar to GTAO.

Maybe not worded quite right but I have Springfield rifle with improvements on my horse..I get off and have a walk and pick up an old worn Springfield.. what happens when I get back to my horse, which Springfield rifle do I end up with?

You can't keep those weapons you pick up like that.  I honestly don't know what happens to it when you jump on your horse.  I don't know how long they stick with you or what may trigger their despawn like certain actions, etc.  Why don't you try it out?

....as for why someone would want to keep it, there's really no point in that either especially since we are not able to sell them.

It's not that I want to keep weapons I pick up, but now I'm wondering whether they replacing existing weapons which are usually a lot better because I've improved them

No, they shouldn't but my suggestion if you're really worried about it is to just stick with your own custom weapons.

I always thought that you keep both. I open the weapon wheel, point to the Springfield, and then move the stick (Xbox 1) left or right to cycle between the two or three.

Maybe I've got it wrong then. I haven't played in months.

You can pick up and keep "worn" versions of weapons while keeping your customizable ones (I honestly hate this and wish there was a way to discard them) and there's a glitch in the mission "An American Pastoral Scene" that enables you to get two Lancaster repeaters, but that's all I know about getting more than one version of each long gun. Beyond that, you can only have one of each.

There are also a rare Springfield and Double Barrel Shotgun. I remember the rare shotgun was hanging over a fireplace in some side mission.

No, you get the rare shotgun from the hermit that lives just north of Annesburg.
