What Galil Manufacture is this?

I purchased a Galil (you know, one of those Century Galil Golani's).

I was wondering if it was a Israeli Build or South African?

Here is the only identifiable markings I can find on the Bolt:


Izzy?

S/A?

Thoughts?

I believe these were built from surplus Israeli parts, sourced from some country that bought them from Israel. Don't remember who.

Ditto on above response. Not many South African R4 series parts made it here. Wild Hond from SA sells a lot of R4 parts in the marketplace.

97% chance those are Central American surplus kits, manufactured by IMI.

Numrich has Israeli army surplus ones.

Guatemala, Honduras, and Colombia used Galils for many many years.
