Where're you from friend originally?

I have never seen a Polytech with a welded, fake flash hider.

As stated before, some had soft bolts that would open the headspace after many firings.

My polytech actually lost the wheel from the bolt during a range outing. I didn't notice until I field stripped it for cleaning. Have to check headspace with gauges periodically to insure it is still safe to fire.
"The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles"
