well, you normally thread them on and then PIN/WELD them to 11.5 inch barrels to meet the 16" minimum barrel length required so that you don't build a SBR.

there are different ones, some std 5.5 which require pinning/perm. for legal length, 4.5, reverse which makes a 16" look like it has a 5.5 fh. along with others.

they are copies of real ones.


real ones from the vietnam era were actually moderators and somewhat silence the rifle a bit. now there are just hollowed out flashhiders but actually dont do such a great job of it and also they bring short barrels out to legal lenghts without any taxes paid when permanently attatched.


heres a link that explains it a little better
