    It depends on what you will be using it for. The 7.5 is very quick to deploy as it is SMG size, great for CQB, but is rather bad for the ears, horrendous muzzle flash, plus the bullet may not fragment due to the short barrel. As for the 20incher, for general use it's ok, but is a distinct liability if you want to make like Chris Costa:supergrin:, as I found out. But bullets from a 20-incher will reliably make a mess of your assailant's body, up to about 200 meters with M193.

    What are the specs of both? Barrel length might not be the only deciding factor. And how much is he selling? If you post the specs and price we can see if your money is worth the rifle you're getting.

    the infant is at 55k and the standard is at 45k. the conditions from 1 to 10 is around 8. passing an opportunity like this is highly regrettable. Until now, I still don't know what to decide on... I really appreciate your suggestion on this.

    Can you test fire them both? If not, get the 20 incher. Mas sigurado ang reliability.

    I'll go for a standard... If I want to have an infant configuration, I will have it customized by my gunsmith of choice.. It's just I'm not sure whether the infant is reliable or not..

    If it is for serious social purposes, imho, get the 20 incher...
    If you want something to play with, get the infant... :)

    infant - 4
    standard - 6

    this is interesting. :wow:
    the infant is a colt that was configured by a reliable gunsmith
    the standard handguard was change from the triangular to an m16a2 (tube type).

    It seems that the 20" has more following than the 7" infant. But what i observed for the past few issues of the different gun magazine, the 7inche are becoming popular among american law enforcers. as a replacement for those pistol caliber smg.

    Here is my advice off the top of my head:

    7.5" - Pros: Great PDW length for vehicles/covert security. Cons: Won't stabilize bullets reliably, cannot suppress due to high risk of baffle strikes, can sometimes be unreliable and ammo finicky due to reduced length of gas tube; severe penalties to velocity and stopping power even with heavier bullets.

    10.5"- Pros: (probably the best all-round CQB/patrol performer) Great CQB length for vehicles/entry teams/security patrol; can be suppressed with OAL of <16" using an AAC M42K Can; reliable and non-specific ammo dependent. Cons: Must use 75gr. bullets as the barrel length does not give lighter 5.56 bullets enough velocity to effectively fragment on a target.

    12.5" - Pros: same as above but with the added benefit of being able to suppress using the AAC SPR-M4 suppressor giving better suppressed results. Cons: same as above

    14.5" - Pros: compact design; allows the bullet more velocity and so not dependent on heavy 5.56 ammo for reliable fragmentation; can use any non-military suppressors due to decreased pressures at blast baffle. Cons: Sacrificing mobility and concealment for a more full size platform.

    16" - Same as above but with the added option of a medium-length gas system.

    18-20"- Pros: (probably the best all round SPR/sniper performer) Full power 5.56 shots for farther reaching shots and more lethality on target; full length gas system provides ease of use and quick accurate on-target follow-up shots Cons: severe mobility constraints in and around vehicles, room clearing, building entry, and CQB-type activities.

    Nitrox, add one vote for the standard for me. Thanks!
