    It says it is a first gen. What is the difference between the first gen and the latest version?

    You guys in the know....Please correct me if Im wrong, Im still learning, but....I believe that the 1st gen have parts that are more M4ish. Ejection port cover (metal) and alot of the internals used in the lowers were from another company not HK made. Serial numbers on uppers were etched on bottom of the upper (right side towards the rear) maybe elsewhere that I dont know about and markings arent present on the left side of upper (date code, etc).

    Correct. The seller clearly has no idea what he's talking about. Those BE uppers are not "1st Gen". I'd hope an OG would never sell for $6-7K...smh

    Correct designations below:

    -HK416A3 (otherwise known as the Norwegian variant, captive cotter pin on bolt carrier to prevent its loss in the field, safety engagement regardless of the hammer position, protective bridge over the disconnector and a unique to that country's weapon gas regulator and taller flip up sights for use with their top mounted laser designator)

    -HK416A4

    -HK416A5
    -HK416A7 (latest version)

    There are, of course, other variants (e.g. HK416D, HK416SF, HK416F, HK416C, etc.) but that's largely irrelevant.
