This is not a flame, just an answer to your questions...
It looks like someone assembled an Israeli Heavy Barrel kit on a Centrury Import post-ban receiver. To make it 922(r)legal, you are going to need to make quite a few changes; just putting a thumbhole stock on it won't do it.
1. The falsh hider has to go. You can permanently attach a post-ban fake flash hider that will screw into the couple; it will then need to be blind pinned and welded. $30 in parts $25 in labor
2. If you want to keep the Izzy furniture and the Izzy forward assist charging handle, you'll need to find 6 parts to change to US made:
Pistol grip ($15)
Sear ($50 for the HTS set)
Gas Piston ($50 for a correct Israeli length Gas Piston)
are easy; now you'll need to do mag follower or baseplate, unlesss it doesn't have the forward assist handle setup (which would cost you $150 if you wanted it). If it doesn't have the Israeli FA charging handle, your last part could be a US made charging handle ($40). TAPCO makes a US charging handle/carrier that sells for about $200 if you want to keep the Izzy HB look.
If all of the Israeli parts are present, the gun is worth what it would sell for as parts. Israeli HB kits go for $650-$850 depending upon parts conditions and the condition of the bore. The Century Non-GL Imbel receivers are worth about $150. Figure that your buyer will need to spend $200 - $400 to make the gun 922(r) compliant if all of the Izzy parts are present.
Sorry it's not good news.
In any case you should separate the upper and lower, and keep it that way (and ship it like that to a buyer) since you've now advertised on a public board your possession of an unlawful post-ban evil black rifle. I don't agree with the law, I'm just pointing out where you stand right now.
