I'm building a 20in AR15, and the company I am buying from only offers chrome moly bores.

I swear I searched, but didnt find anything. What is the difference between the moly and chrome lined bores?

From a maintainence standpoint, are there any real drawbacks? Durability? Accuracy?

Thanks alot guys

Chrome Moly is not a chromed bore: chrome moly is a standard steel bore. It's more accurate than chrome, but it's harder to clean, more prone to rust, and not as able to be submerged, etc without a good and proper cleaning afterwards. Some people swear by chrome, other's say that an average shooter won't need anything more than chrome moly. It's all a matter of preference: I have one of each for certain reasons, and really like both.
