WTA Israeli Lower

Appears to be a later Israeli trigger housing, that is in very nice condition. Has just a bit of crud on the recoil tube, otherwise for a Izzy it looks un-issued. Appears to be black paint over park. Would like to start this at $150.00, bid increments of $10.00, auction closes at 1800 hours Pacific time on 13 Dec. 2017.
If my identification is in-correct, do please feel free to add your expert opinion of where this part was made, and for whom.[IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]

Are the selector markings milled out?

This is how I received it, can't tell you anything else about it. I'll post a better pic tomorrow.

IIRC, Armscorp grabbed up a bunch of Izzy parts, milled/bubba'd off the Hebrew markings, and sold them with kits. Unsure why those turds did that, but it ranged from end-milling the markings and engraving 'S' and 'F' (I sold a lower like this a few years ago) to dremeling them off, to much more grotesque mutilations than that which is seen above. Not sure what genius thought of perpetrating such stoopid shite, but it definitely made extremely nice FAL parts look less than they otherwise would. GLWS brother Rich...

Not a redrill, it's worth restoring. Those fubar'd markings can be welded up and redone to look great.

I actually have two of these, would like to sell both before they begin to go to seed, and become complete rifals.

Israeli marking on std buttplates cross hatched out. I've seen markings on std charging handles, gas plugs, marked out too.
I was told the Israeli's did this for weapons that were used in places they were not supposed to be. Or on weapons sold or intended to be sold by the Israeli's.
Sanitized. Kinda funny though as Israeli FALs are very unique.

Markings could be welded up and restamped in English letter for building a Grand Duchy or Luxembourg
