16.25 inches.
Poppycock. Federally its a flat 16" barrel length or a 26" overall length. Maybe your state law mandates that extra .25" but its not a requirement under federal law.

18 USC 921(a)(8) The term “short-barreled rifle” means a rifle having one or more barrels less than sixteen inches in length and any weapon made from a rifle (whether by alteration, modification, or otherwise) if such weapon, as modified, has an overall length of less than twenty-six inches.
