Hey guys, I what would be yalls advice on an affordable chromelined 7.5" barrel? It would be going with an adams arms piston kit. I dont need a front sight on the barrel... I want the barrel to be decently light and good quality for reliability for blasting ammo. The barrel will get hot at times im sure! I dont need a noveske or anything though. Thanks for the advice!

I ended up picking up a complete upper from JSE surplus, they have pretty good prices on barrels as well

I'm interested in this as well. This is the only chrome lined 7.5" I can find.

I have a question while were on the subject.
Does a chrome lined chamber aid in extraction? ASA sells the same barrel without chrome lining for $50.00 less. Is the $50.00 money well spent toward increasing reliability? I'm going with a Spikes FA BCG and a T2 buffer.

I guess I could knock the FSB off that DPMS at JSE. I think I read somewhere that there is no finish under it though.

i have the stainless 7 in. jse lightweight. it's great. no issues, cycles perfectly with no mods or work. and at 100 bucks, a deal. accuracy is what i expected from a short ass barrel. it's GTG.

I need a 7.5 for sure because im running an adams arms piston kit and the adjustable gas block will hit if i run the kx3pig like im planning on... i could do the stainless 7.5 one that jse has but i was thinking chrome lining might be better for blasting alot of cheap ammo and running it real hot. Thanks for the help man.
