The 10-ring is 7" on the NRA SR target, so that group is a lousy 4MOA give or take...
Seriously, custom built ARs (whether professionally built or self-built) are going to be better than the factory off the shelf ARs. Just use quality parts.

The straight answer to that is....it depends...
It depends on the components used for the build and the person building it...and the ammo they use.
Barrel length only affects sight radius...meaning its easier to aim a longer barrel....most of the time longer barrels are actually less accurate...benchrest shooters have known this for quite some time.

4 MOA offhand groups at 200m are pretty darn good shooting in my book, but they probably aren't a good indicator of what the rifle is capable of.

As I get closer to the purchase of my AR, I just thought I would bring this up again and ask another question. It seems that the 24" vs. the 20" as far as accuracy are the same. How about a 20" or 24" vs. a carbine length AR for accuracy?

Also, which twist will yeild higher accuracy with 55gr loads, 1 in 7 or 1 in 10

18' AP4 barrel with match chamber
No wonder it's so accurate, you only had 82' left to shoot! :D
