I've got a Izzy Hb kit I want to build on a metric imbel receiver. What do I need to do? Change the threads form inch to metric, use metric bolt and carrier? What else? Will the izzy charging handle work? Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Israeli FALs are metric. You have it backwards. Your HB will have metric threads, chase them with 1"X16 die.
The threads on the Israeli barrels are the only metric threads on a metric FAL.

If you dont have an Izzy carrier or a carrier which has been cut the forward assist feature will not function
