Which one of these underside guns is fake (If any)?

Top is wider when viewed from top and has a rough left end. (No discolouration)
Bottom has discoloured (Yellow) and has a smooth finish to left end.

are they both from the same AT-AT like the ESB or the ROTJ both use the same style of gun. I can post pics of the ROTJ one when I get home if you like for comparison mine is 100% vintage.

These are difficult to tell the originals from fakes. It's likely the bottom one in your pic is an original due to the discolouraton.

I've had a number of original chin guns pass though my hands, and unfortunately the top one looks repro to me, but I'd be happy to be proven wrong.

Out of the two I did think the top would be the fake one, due to the other being discoloured. After further tests the top one also sinks in water as the original doesn't.

Not complaining as I got a complete AT AT, AT ST, 3 Rigs and 17 figures/weapons for £41.

The mold lines look a little rougher on the top one as well.
