SIG 516 Gen 1 Vs Gen 2
I am looking to get my first SIG 516 Patrol. My local dealer has one, but he cannot tell me if it is a Gen 1 or 2.
Can anyone tell me what the differences are when looking at the rifle? Is a Gen 2 better than a Gen 1?

GEN 1 is where you have to push the detent down to turn the gas settings. Generation two there is an actual button you push down to turn your gas settings. I am not sure about the next part but the generation 2 sigs that I have seen the gas settings that you use to turn is square on the generation 1 and on the generation 2 is more rounded.
This post has a lot of good pictures of the 2nd generation.
