Currently, there are no 16" LM4 outer barrels cut for a midlength gas system. I've been waiting for one as well but no word. If I remember correctly, uscmCorps is trying to convince a manufacturer to produce 16" carbine, midlength, and rifle barrels. Thing to note as you keep a look out; KSC LM4 outer barrels are compatible with the LM4 so if you find one for the KSC, it will fit the LM4. But KWA LM4 aftermarket barrels exist yet.
EDIT: In regards to inner barrels, the longest/standard length available is 373mm at this time. But for airsoft purposes, it isn't necessary to have the inner barrel go all the way to the end. Although I can understand the OCD
It probably is more of an OCD thing, rather than something based on fact, but I would imagine there could be some accuracy loss in a gun where the inner doesn't fully extend the outter barrel. Then again, we're talking under a 2" difference.

I believe this is 16" with a mid gas system:
Here's what uscmCorps said he wants to do:
The more people that show interest on the forum the better. I personally want a 14.5" midlength.
Thanks for that link, that is pretty much exactly what I'm looking for, other than the dimples, those are a real turn off for me.

There are actually a good amount of aftermarket barrels available.
Could you perhaps tells me where to search? I've been browsing ehobby, and I have found quite a bit of things I'm looking for (Pmags, the RA-tech inner, the new EVO hop-up), the only 16" barrel I have seem to come across is the one that Beach so kindly linked.
