I've actually changed my mind about this recently. I noticed that the V2 neck is longer and thought they couldn't be the same.... and then realized the first grenade ring was reduced, extending the neck downwards. I brought this idea to PoopaPapaPalps who had already experimented with this and come up with results. He hasn't shared yet so I didn't want to push it too far - but I am convinced they were both casts.I really would love to see a comparison of the grenade section of the V2 and V3. Could it be possible that the V2 is an entirely machined piece as opposed to the V3, which is a casting?
Emitter... well if the V2's emitter is complicated with bushings and bearings and stuff, then maybe it's a new emitter, but I'm not sure either way there.
My anakin starkiller V2 is on display right now, so I can't compare them until the end of November
