The flex nuts were put on the HT's during rebuild to M16A1's in the 1950's.

you will find that those L-9  locknuts are are so hard that you have to run a tap through them or they just jam the threads. they are designed for use with L-9 bolts.
I also like the flex type

I pulled a lot of these from mine that went through a rebuild.
