Can someone tell me the difference in a Israeli receiver and the other FAL receivers? Thanks, Larry

Dear Larry,

It's true, the diff is in the "cut" :-) of the rec/bbl threads that is.

The IMI/IDF rec's are cut for true metric thread, while the Metric and L1A1 Inch patt
rec's are threaded with a std 1 x 16tpi.

The IMI/IDF rec's can be re-tapped to std 1x16 tpi, and the IMI/IDF bbl's can be re-cut to go into a standard rec thread. I just got done doing 5 IMI/IDF H.B. kits this week.
I re-cut the threads on a lathe and they come out nice that way.

Hope this helps,

George L. Gouger
