    1 mm (.039 in.) error at the front sight would cause a error difference of 19 feet @ 100 yards.

  • Only real advantage goes to the 6.5 inch barrel due to a slightly longer sight plane.

    I haven't seen much difference in accuracy, between the 5.5" & 6.5" barrels.

    I have a 5.5" one, I have a buddy with the longer barrel.

    I would imagine if you were talking 4.5" vs 7.5", you would start to notice a difference.

    I bought the 5.5" model, simply because I liked the balance and look of the gun better than the longer barrel ones.

    there is almost no difference in trajectory or ballistics between the two, it then is just a matter of choice. The shorter barrel would give you a faster draw and that would be your only difference.
