Longer barrels are VERY usable with the AR platform. Just remember there is no free lunch. For everything you get you will give something in return. The shorter barrels are quite handy. The longer barrels give speed the shorter barrels can't. Mine sports your typical 20 inch barrel and works very well for me.
