Default New owner of 2 IP receivers. What to do with them?

What should I do with these?

Leave alone and store for future?

Build them up with nice mixmaster parts?

Build them up with as much as possible correct parts?

Refinish them?

What do you think?

They appear refinished already and heavily greased. Just love them. Or spend tons of money on parts correcting them or make them shooters.

Seems like a lot of money to spend without a plan. Might as well build them up with correct parts!

Save one and build one as a mixmaster but trying to stay with IP and S'G' parts as much as possible.

I may at least put a barrel on one of these.

Type 2B: Barrels marked from mixed manufacturers: "INLAND DIVISION" most date marked; "BUFFALO ARMS" date marked until October, 1943; "ROCK-OLA" date marked until June, 1943;
