Careful reading of Black Rifle II reveals the the Recce rifles as built for the SEALs have 16.5" barrels and not 16" ones.

What are you guys running on yours?

So a 14.5" is 14" by civie measurements? Was '14.5"' measurement kept for marketing purposes? And the 20" is 19.5"?

Wes is absolutely right, that's how a barrel is "supposed" to be measured, with the bolt closed, insert a (cleaning) rod into the muzzle end until it bottoms out, mark the muzzle end spot on this rod, The total length from one end to this mark is the barrel length.
