Some were made from demilled grenade launchers. You will find them with birdcage or cone type flash hiders. They were common in the 60s and 70s. You do not see them much any more. There was also a stamped cone type.

Warning , installation (or probably even mere possession) of such a device could turn your innocent Garand into an evil assault weapon in many Nanny states.
