Running the risk of going off a tangent, what are the benefits of one vs the other? I personally have used the vertical one and it is the one that is more instinctive to me, but I never claimed to be normal...

Just Preference in my opinion.

The horizontal was later production and it can be operated with you hand on the pistol grip, if that is important to you.

IMHO the vertical looks better.

The vertical locking latches were prone to unlock the receiver during grenade firing and was superseded by the horizontal latch. The hortizontal latch was designed to need little more pressure to unlock the receiver.

Mark, excellent latches.

Thanks … the levers are from a later production as it indicated by the square cutout at the base pin to prevent pin movement.

LOL … use as nipple pasties at your own risk. They are a bit sharp, so it would most definitely fall under the category of, "Things I did ONCE"!!!!!!!
