The only difference is the contour cuts on the side of the receivers, and they're both Metric type's.

I hope DSA doesn't mind this but here's the Type 1

And here's the Type 2

If you look on the left hand side of both pics you'll see the different contours above the locking latch. I think they(FN FAL) changed it because of some cracking in this area from a lot of Full-Auto fire, but don't quote me on that!

ps To answer your question the contour cuts make them lighter and it looks more like the original receiver compared to a Type 3

There is also a Type 3 which has none of the radius cuts offered by other manufacturers and is sometimes an import (IMBEL) DSA is the best but there are other domestic producers as well --enterprise arms , Hesse arms ,Willams ,Federal arms,with a gamut of prices and flavors as well as gunsmiths that can do builds for you if you dont want to tackle it yourself. Your options are almost limitless.
