What barrel length are you running on your 3 Gun AR?

Just count the barrel length to the muzzle (do not add length for your muzzle device).

Man I thought most people ran 16". I feel better about keeping my 18" now.

I'm currently running a 20" 1:9 heavy profile barrel.

I'm building a new 3gun rifle and it will have an 18" 1:8 fluted medium profile rifle length gas barrel. I hope it will be as accurate on the long range stages out to 500 yards.

It depends on the match but I have a 20inch, a 16 inch and a 10.5 inch I use

Shit I've been running my 11.5 SBR in my small local matches, but I've been looking to build a 16 middy for 3 gun as my shop is sponsoring.

Maybe, but I'm making consistant 200-300 yard shots on 12" steel plates.

Though I can make decent shots with irons with a 16" m4 out to 200. Just not as consistently, I'll probably end up throwing a 1-4 on that as well.

Does the 18" mainly just offer better balance? I figure if you were running irons the extra length would be beneficial, but otherwise the extra velocity isn't that signifcant (over a 16"), and barrel length really has no bearing on accuracy. So, is it mainly for balance issues?

Thanks

Cool, thanks. Also, is rifle gas in an 18" noticibly softer than mid gas in a 16"? Then again, I suppose the extra mass of the 18" doesn't hurt for softening it either....

My local 2/3 gun matches are mostly CQ, with occasional shots out to ~150yd.

I usually shoot a 7.5" SBR or 8" suppressed .300blk and I've won a time or two with each
Link Posted: 2/5/2015 11:10:59 AM EST
16" or 18" I voted 18.

It looks like more and more people are choosing shorter bbl's, but mine is 18" LW/NST Noveske.

That's exactly what I did had a 16" shot a few matches with it and just bought an 18". Was as good an excuse as any to give my wife when I bought another gun.

18" rifle length gas heavy profile. Soft shooting though a bit hefty.
Link Posted: 11/16/2016 7:33:44 PM EST
I know everyone wants the rifle length gas system for softer recoil but a shorter barrel. Has anyone built a DI system around this barrel?
