Although I have questions as to what barrel size, thickness? Varmint? Etc to go for
Whilst the rifle will be used for shooting targets at the range I would like to shoot rabbit when I’m able to sort out a permission
Which barrel is best? I know it’s subjective. But open to anyone 2 pence on it

So there’s no issue should the “right” deal turn up with good scope, mod etc, but barrel happens to be the long skinny one?
And by the same token, I’m unlikely to see any disadvantage aside from weight (which isn’t a problem) from going for a 16” varmint say?

They are heavier, but cope with repeated shooting fine. The skinny barrels are lighter, but over an extended course of rapid fire you may find accuracy starts to fade as the barrel heats up..?
if you're shooting reasonably slowly, or the occasional pop at a bunny, the skinny barrels are fine.
