A couple of suggestions.
1) Take your question to the AR Discussion Forum... this is the Piston Forum.
2) Your subject title reads Adams Arms 16" but your question doesn't include it.

OP, did you mistakenly type BCM 14.5" twice? Do you mean to say used BCM 14.5 lightweight vs AA 16" upper?

In which case go with the 16in upper

I am sorry, corrected my mistake.

I'd go for the 16" upper. All other things being equal, the extra velocity is nice, and you'll never notice the extra length.

I think you will be surprised how nice it is and how well it's made. For comparison of any manufacturer it's hard to find outright junk. I think by now if any of these piston companies had a really bad or above average failures it would be well known here.
