What is the difference between a middy and carbine gas system?

Gas port position. The middy gas port is located a couple of inches further away from the chamber, thus the port pressure is a lot lower. This results in smoother and more reliable function, less stress on internal components etc. Overall, the middy is a better choice with a 16" barrel.

Thank you. How to I tell if my 16" barrel has a middy or a carbine gas system? The gas port is about 8 " from the end of the barrel. Is that a middy system? If so, how far would the gas port be on a carbine system?

Sounds like you have carbine gas.
