Barrel length has nothing to do with intrinsic accuracy, only velocity. If I remember right 16" is the optimum length for .22lr and any barrel after that just slows the bullet a little.

Here's the one I just did (my favorite):
Tacsol Barrel
VQ trigger innards
Hogue stock
Rimfire Forum


My super acurate build.
GM 16" fluted barrel
reworked bolt
VQ trigger/sear/hammer/shims
Boyd's stock
Rimfire Forum


The top one will shoot 3/8" groups at 50 yds but the bottom one will stack bullets at the same distance. The top one is more reliable and likes more different ammo, it is also threaded for my suppressor.
