Default Lwrc m6a2 14.7 or 16 inch barrel?

I guys, my first post on long gun forum. Ive decided on an LWRC M6a2 556 but wanted to know what the difference is between the 14.7 inch barrel and the 16 inch barrell. I found one that is non SPR with fluted barrel with 14.7 inch or debating between a standard 16 inch barrel non fluted barrel. Please lmk what you guys think. Both are around $2,200

What does that mean? Is that better or worse?

means the barrel is still going to be 16+ inches but you lose the velocity from an actual 16inch barrel.

if you go nfa route for a sbr it doesnt matter if its short. non-nfa 14" makes no sense to me

My LWRC is a 14.7" which is nice because any regular length muzzle device. I'm more into the use of ARs than the technical data or the slight loss of velocity by going from 16" to 14.7". I do know the slightly shorter barrel feels nicer and points better. Of course that's all just my opinion.

Mine is for sale

national firearms act of 1936. outlawedd suppressors machineguns shortbarrel rifles explosive devices canons destructive implements and short barreled rifles.

it is illegal to possess a a rifle with a barrel less than 16" without a nfa tax stamp.

anyway the benefits of a shorter barrel is lighter weight and shorter length making it more handy. the negative is a loss of velocity.

if you dont go nfa then you have to permanently attach a device that gets you to 16.1" so your back to 16" adding almost all the weight back but still give up the velocity.

thats why i dont think it makes sense
