Well, going with the barrel only (and the issue slide, rather than the long slide) is the cheaper option, but I doubt it will help drawing any, because the barrel is still poking way out there in front...

I like the long slide for two reasons: Aesthetically it looks much better than a bare barrel sticking out the front and second, it adds weight to the slide, thereby assisting with keeping the slide and barrel group recoiling slower and softer. This makes shooting hotter loads easier on the pistol and shooter, and probably enhances speed of follow-up shots (time between shots in rapid fire) considerably...
