Barrel length is measured from the face of the closed bolt to the end of the muzzle.

I have heard to measure it you can use a cleaning rod with your bolt closed...Just drop it down the barrel.

Yes measured from bolt face to end of muzzle or permanent attachment.
An ar15 with a 12 inch barrel and welded on NON removable flash hider of 4 inches would be legal also. because now the flashhider becomes part of the barrel. So you could still have some cool looking configurations.
