AR 15 barrel swap

I'm thinking of swapping my stock 16in barrel for a bull/ fluted and free float set up, and maybe a piston kit. What is everyone's thoughts and barrel recommendations? The rifle is an M&P.

Chris the police can still ID you as the shooter from the firing pin marks on the rounds you left outside.

Just trying to help!

I have a 24in bull barrel, and a 16in heavy.

If I was to do it again I would have a 20in. light barrel.

20" bull barrel is your best choice. I run a 24" 1:8 bench barrel only because I use the rifle for long range Target shooting heavy bullets (90-110gr). Not something you really need. 20" 1:8 is a good barrel, you can shoot heavier loads without blowing up smaller loads. 1:9 if you plan on standard 55gr mostly.
