GEN I vs GEN II upper's

Recommended Posts

Can you explain what the difference between the GEN I upper and the GEN II upper? Honestly, I didn't know there was a GEN II until I was playing around on the internet and a dealer advertised both types.

I think it has to do with the forward assist. It has been more rounded off some.

The brass deflector is more rounded so the sharp edges wont snag as easily.

 

I like the sharp edges on my GENI upper. The rounded one looks out of place. Doesnt flow as well.

Thanks for clearing that up. Not sure which one I have now, I'll have to check when I get home tonight. Interesting spring you have on the ejection port door. Is that the way it came from the factory or is it aftermarket? I ordered my receiver without the door, but I'd like to get a spring like that, do you know of anywhere that sells them?

Thanks for the help.

Sorry about that - on my computer, the spring looks like a dozen or so large coils instead of the normal ejection port door spring. After blowing it up... it's the same old version as mine. Thanks for clearing up the Gen I vs. Gen II question.
