it looks usgi to me. possibly the early type 1 small square base type. Cant tell for sure, would need a clear picture from the side showing the rear sight area. Some of those early flash suppressors looked a bit rougher than the later made parts, at least this is what I have seen having had 4 or 5 of the early flash suppressors. the early flash suppressors were cast I believe

I had one just like it, a reclaimed flash suppressor with a threaded on front. It was sold as NOS for top dollar to me. Nope, I was not refunded a cent. Nancy Chin, Bestparts was username on gb. Thankfully I noticed it was pieced together and did not install it or shoot with it. Ren also had one blow apart on him from the same source and reclaimed/rebuilt in the same way. There is no way that seller does not know by now that they have many reclaimed flash suppressors and they are not nos, but they are still being listed and sold to unsuspecting buyers. Be careful who you buy from, educate yourself, and BUYER BEWARE! In other words, be paranoid about the expensive usgi parts you buy and the people selling them. There are many great sellers, but there are some greedy snakes selling too.
I am glad you were not hurt. That could have been bad.

I gave the rear half of the suppressor I got to a member here for a project, so at least it wasnt a total loss/
