Whatever you do don't expect to get more out of it than you put in financially. I unbubba'd a Kokura Arsenal Type 99 a while back from a barreled receiver. It's one of my favorite guns today but boy do the spare parts cost A LOT. Treat it as a labour of love and you'll enjoy the rifle all the more.

Better pictures would help, deciding to shoot is up to you.

Between the two rifles you could put together a decent shooter. Selling the checkered butt-plate which could be off a M2 and milled bottom metal from one or the other would buy you the additional parts. A nice back sight is already done for you on the Remington and a sight collar is already there on the L/N.
That leaves you with a L/N barreled receiver and a sported stock + a bunch of bits without the need to consider ammo or PPE problems for shooting, or at the very least trade/ sale fodder for other interests.
Sorry it took so long but here a couple pics of the bolt.
