Is there a functional difference between the early and late ones? Seems like it's just a question of where the butterfly nuts are located.

Yes, when you look the two bipod, you see that the difference is about the place from the butterfly nuts on the legs.

When you use the bipod, the problem with the early type is that the dirt, water... go inside the legs bipod when you insert the smallest part of the leg in the biggest, you don't have this problem with the late version.

Normally the late type is stronger and more handy in fight situation (because of where the butterfly nuts are located)
