barrel length from? Is it the receiver face or the bolt face. I have an STG and I want to cut to 16.25" including DSA brake and I want to make sure I'm legal on length.

Legally, barrel leangth is measured from the breech or bolt face to the end of the barrel. Easiest way to do it is close the action. Stick a cleaning rod down the barrel from the muzzle until it stops at the bolt face. Mark the rod at the end of the barrel. I always add 1/4 inch for insurance.
