Is that top one even detachable?

Looks like A1 Carry Handle.

Looks normal to be. The second pic looks like and aftermarket a2 bolt on handle.

The One you pictured is not detachable. It is a completely different upper. Most manufacturers refer to them as A2 style uppers.

The one in the top pic is an A1 style. Those where phased out with the A2.

The A4 came out, which is a detachable A2.

So there are not many, if any detachable A1s. I know the Canadians had some detachable A1 carry handles.
