The easiest thing to look for is the gauge. v1's had a 600 psi gauge on the reg, v2 went to 300 psi. Also the purge on the reg v1 had a single large hole, the v2 has 4 smaller holes. Several other differences, but those are the 2 easiest to spot.

Actually you can tell the difference versions just by the box alone!

First Gen Mini's came in this case


As far as I know the next Mini's came in these black boxes which are basically glorified cardboard


The 2009 Mini's came in this white box which is the same as the other black one.


If you don't want to take it out of the box generally I would say this is the best way to tell which generation it is, you will not get a generation 1 in a cardboard box or vice versa. I wish they still had the hard plastic cases cause I think they were way nicer than the newer cardboard boxes but the markers inside are much better.

Hope it helped you out!

if its a 09 its a gen 2 poppet version 4 (best combo)

gen 2 minis have a pressure guage that only goes to 300 psi, gen 1s had a guage that goes to 600, the purge nut on the bottom of the reg on the gen 1s has 1 large hole, on gen 2s has 4 small ones, thats it from the outside
