Okay, so i have my t9.1 elite and i've determined from previous posts that i should get a Flasc .687 barrel. My question is what length would be best. 8 inch, 10 inch, or 14inch. I only use my T9.1 with FS, or if the difference in length would make a difference.
Efficiency isn't a big concern!

Personally, I'd go with the 14 inch. It may not affect the actual accuracy of the round, but I feel like it's easier to sight down longer barrels. Of course, if you're using optics, that won't be a factor, so then it depends on your usage. Are you looking for a CQB feel, or are you going for more of a rifle platform?

Really i'm indifferent about if it's cqb or rifle, and I use the scope. so...Posted Image and which would be more quiet, double porting on the 8" and 10" or what basicaly is single porting for the 14"? I'm a bit new to barrels, so i apologize if any of the questions are "noobish"

I believe the longest barrel will be the quietest, even with the different porting.

nothing longer than 14 inches

Personally, the shorter the barrel, the better. Get it to 300fps and let it fly. Longer barrels can damage fins. Damaged fins are less accurate

I'd say between 12" and 14" is usually the best to go by.
