Most AR15 barrels (indeed rifle barrels in general) are either 4140 or 4150 Chromoly Steel, either with a chromium lining in the bore and chamber or not, unless they are 416 or 410 Stainless Steel.

So you see your question is a bit unanswerable as anyone that doesn't have a SS barrel basically has a Chromoly Steel barrel, whether chrome lined or not.

Did you mean to say chrome-lined?

I have both lined and unlined.

I recommend the chrome-lined bore and chamber because of the corrosion resistance and ease of cleaning. There is a reason why modern military weapons all have a chrome-lined bore and chamber.

Well worth the $40 or so price difference.

I have one AR that is not chrome lined plus many other rifles that are not. No issues if stored with CLP in bore.  I have others that are chrome lined and they are of course easier to maintain.

I have some SS, some CM, some chrome lined.

All work well.
