Upper Question Model & Plain muzzle ?

Just found this upper that I realized I got this from a trade that I made 10 years ago. I am trying to get more information on this.

From what I am seeing, I have the FA MP 5.56mm Match 1/9 which seems to be made by Fulton Armory.

One question - I am not sure if this looks like it has a "Plain muzzle" ? it looks like it's made for Thor's hands. I just afraid that I would bend the barrel.

Is this something I should bring to someone to take a look at it and see what my options are before selling this if need.

Can you take a close up pic of the flash hider so we can see?

It looks to me it was a 14.5 inch barrel that was pinned to make it a legal length.

That's quite the peculiar thing there. It looks like they made a 16" barrel with the end machined to look like a flash hider on a 14.5" M4 barrel. Best guess is it's a relic from the 90's ban era when flash hiders were a no-no.

There are no threads on that muzzle at all! That's some other level retardation right there!!

That's how it looks to me FWIW, part of the barrel itself, not an add-on.

Very peculiar. It looks like they went to a lot of bother for purely cosmetic reasons.

Looks like a pinned fake flash suppressor from the second set of photos, looks like they missed a few times getting the pin in.
