A 16" superlight profile barrel or an M4 type 14.5 with a perm phantom?

ETA: The little skinny pencil superlight Bushmaster barrel compared to the M4 profile of the 14.5 inch. Which looks better?
Performance
Performance side, does the Point of impact shift alot on the skinny 16 incher? Thanks!

14.5 screams stupid as you are giving up performance for looks.
go 16

16".
You never know when you need to engage distant targets.

Who cares what it looks like. Choose your gear on performance.

Whoah!

I am talking about the little pencil thin superlight 16 inch Bushmaster.

Do you think the 14.5inch looks better than the skinny, little, heats up fast, 16 inch Superlight barrel?

I would go with the 14.5". It looks better and 1.5" is not going to make a big difference on a man-size target at 100yds.

I prefer my Colt pencil barrel, much handier carbine.

Haven't been able to get my 6920 to out perform my 6520, maybe after 500 rounds things change.

Four out of five Wookies agree, go with what works best.
