If i had a choice i would get a 14.

I have a dye ul back and stiffy front its 15 inches.

And theirs really no need for a 16, 14's do just fine.

I agree, it's much harder to aim with a stubby barrel. I've found my 16" even easier to aim with than my 14".

Anything between 6" and 12" is perfect. You will rarely, if ever, see a pro player using a 14"

Longer barrel length doesnt increase range, it DECREASES it if past 12"

Ur the biggest noob ever. Please just quit trying to give help to noobs (sorry if your not a noob) when you are a noob (which you are).
You cant compare a stock ion barrel to an upgraded one.

**** if i had the choice it would be lucky's... but if not 16in ftw they are alot easier to aim with and help with playing bunkers unless your in a really badly tight spot. stock 14in barrels will suffice but not as well
