If you remember our swapping of posts about the T37 flashhiders for the M1 Garand, you will remember that you noted that if it was fake it would splay out on the end and would have a thud rather than a ring if you thump it. Well, I just took it apart for cleaning and thumped it and it rang for about 5 seconds. I also just got two more for the other 2 Garands and comparing the ends, it has not splayed out after about 100 rounds. Is that enough rounds to see the splaying? Both the new ones came in oily bags and rang like tuning forks also. So, according to you, I got a hell of a deal on what seem to be genuine US military surplus flash hiders at $27.50 each. Tell me what you think. Oh, I will stick with the T37s over the Vortex for two reasons. One is money, I am having to be cheap right now and the second is authenticity. They T37s have it and the Vortex doesn't. This is the T37 after about 100 rounds [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraida/p14c9199265a4693dfa15c696330dc5f6/fdd5fa5a.jpg[/img] These are the two new ones [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraida/p905f79fa8bb64fd00f80a1cbd1ae2c41/fdd5fa5b.jpg[/img] What do you think?

Hey, where did you get those? I've got a couple of Garands that might look spiffy all dressed up in an original flashhider. [:)]

I sure hope so, I got mine yesterday from Numrich and put it on today. Now I just need a scope for it. Can't wait to try it out next weekend [:)] Yes it's legal, I asked in the Legal Forum and was assured that it was legal.

Will fit any Garand and just screws on in place of the gas cylinder lock ring that screws on the front of the barrel right in front of the sights. The link posted by Vulch is where I got them. I bought one last year and just bought two more last week and have already recieved them. It's kind of funny, now they are gonna have a run on M1 Garand flashhiders from what I have seen posted here. Raf had indicated that he thought they were fakes because of the low price ($27.55) and said the fakes would splay out on the end after a few rounds and the fakes would have a thud rather than a tuning fork type ring. Well, this one has not splayed and sounds very much like a tuning fork when you thump it, as do the two new ones. I believe these are the genuine article. Numrich has another flashhider/muzzle brake listed. I originally ordered one of those and did not like anything about it when I got it, including the way it attached. Don't get that one, get the T37. I believe they are legal in Kali since the Garand doesn't have any other 'evil' features. Vulch, if it's all original GI, you can't put a scope on it. That would be sacriligeous. [peek] The one I have the scope and flashhider on had an NM barrel and op rod when I got it, so it wasn't so sacreligious. Just kidding, it's your Garand. Have you found a mount? Unless it is an M1C or M1D, you will have to buy an aftermarket mount. I got mine at B Square. You have to remove the rear sight. [url]http://www.reliablehost.com/bsquare/classicmil_2.html[/url]

Well, it's all original but it's more of a mixmaster and it's in .308. Thanks for the link I'll look into it, but I think I might wait until I get it rebarreled and refinished.

I may not be original, but is very well made, as you say. I have one for each of my 3 Garands and they work well. I am happy with them even if they aren't original. They sure look and work the part.
