Indian 1A1 questions

Hi all,I recently purchased a L1A1 type front end with receiver stub still attached. My plan was to slowly gather the commwealth type parts and hopefully have a rifle built by G.P.,upon further research it appears I have Indian 1a1,crown over crossed flags over p markings on stub and barrel.This barrel and gas system appear to be in excellent to un fired condition. So finally my questions, So does this barrel indeed have metric threads and what upper reciever would be most correct to build on? Thanks for your time.

If barrel is as described, recommend receiver listed on MP recently

The barrel has M25X1.5 threads if it hasn't already been messed with.
