Is the TA31F a good choice or would the other TA models be better?

Have a TA31-F on my Preban goverment carbine (16" HBAR flattop upper). It's WONDERFUL! --RR

The "F" is designed and calibrated for the 14.5" bbl flattop. It has the chevron reticle and is usually sold with the flattop adapter (mount).

Can it be used on a 20 in barrel?

It can be used on a 20" barrel, but your bullet drop compensation using the reticle will be off. Read the tacked thread at the top of the forum to find out how much. The chevron reticle is a little slower to pick up in fast shooting, but may be better for precise work. Depends on what you want to to with it. I prefer the TA31, with the donut reticle.

Yes, it can be though the hold over graduations will be a little off because of the different trajectory. See the tacked post at the top of this forum titled "The Big ACOG BDC Chart" by Bartholomew_Roberts --RR

Precisely the reason I bought both. I feel the TA11 is a faster shooting scope "in general" because of the greater eye relief, so I bought it with the donut. Have the Chevron on the TA31. --RR
