24" barrels are great for getting the velocity up, only real use is for hitting a long range target just a lil harder. They really shine with the heavier bullets.
The 24" model "1" barrel is chromed lined, and will hurt accuracy, kinda defeats the point of a 24" barrel.
If u do not want a bull barrel but still want a 24" barrel, do like I did and try to find a bushmaster varminter barrel.
Bushmaster 24" Fluted, Non-Chrome Lined Barrel based on DCM Competition design - button rifled 1/9 twist. Features a hybrid SAAMI Spec chamber with longer throat or "Leade" to accommodate 5.56mm ammunition. It is 1" in diameter out to the gas block with an 11 degree competition muzzle crown
