I really had my heart set on a M4 type upper but some one is offering me a good deal on a DSA midlength with a fluted barrel at a good price. Are there any advantages to one over the other?

I have one of each and I prefer the mid length, same overall length but more forearm to hang onto or hang things on to. Besides some think that the M4 barrel with the grenade launcher cut out is not as accurate.

On a 16" barrel the mid-length gas system has the advantage.
