What barrel length do you choose?

I'm debating getting a dw 10 inch or a 14 inch...

which is better? which is more efficient?

I use either a 12" Lapco, 14" MacDev or an 18" WGP. I like the 12" for anything that isn't airball, 14" for airball and 18" for rec airball (i.e. when switching hands doesn't need to be as fast as possible).

considering all my guns are a pretty similar platform and size (2 cockers, sniper, '06 ego), i use a 14" across the board. it's what i'm used to, and the gun feels about the same for all of them.

maybe that's why i can't hit **** with my '94 when i use a stock 10" barrel...

I tried 14 for awhile on several different markers. It's ok but I'm most comfortable with a 12.

i use a 14" DW. I have used twelve and sixteen inch barrels in the past, sixteen was a tad too long for me, twelve was ok but the fourteen gave me a little more barrel to aim along.

i guess its all personall preference though.

I use to shoot a 16in. But switched back to a 14in, I feel as if I play tighter that way. 14in is best all around for me.
