It's 20" Stainless Steel. Armalite used to build 24" .308's but found that the accuracy wasn't any better and it created a very unbalanced rifle.
I was going to buy the Rock River LAR 8 with 26" barrel last year, but held off because of the wait (just like DPMS). Definately get the 2-stage RR trigger upgrade. When I built my 24" 5.56 bull I put a RR 2-stage in and it is sweet for the money.
My father owns a DPMS .308 18" barrel. It is really accurate, too, but a trigger upgrade is a must since DPMS puts ragged raw steel garbage in for triggers.
