Is there a company out there that offers this service?

Thats exactly a question I had, and was hoping it would get answered in the process.

Thanks Troy. Thats exactly what I was afraid of. That answers that question.

Armoloy used to do bores OVER .30 inches but not under.

Does anyone offer good chrome lining on barrels that aren't fired? A 1/7 or 1/8chrome lined medium weight would be right down my alley. No one makes one of course.

"AR-based carbine, 16.5", mid-length gas system, 1:8-twist, 4150 steel, chrome-lined, mid-weight (.700" or so), mid-length URX, flattop, Safe-Semi-Auto trigger, collapsable stock (M93 preferred). Mk262-class ammo." I was with you the whole time except for the Glock 17, I like .45's and 1911 is king of .45's Mine would be: same but with 16.5in 4150 1/8 .73in under handguards, chrome lined rifle length gas tube, KAC URX, KAC Lowprofile gas block, KAC RAS Mount flip up, KAC 600M rear, collapsible stock, Safe/Semi/Auto 2-stage match trigger. (Open bolt sectability would be cool too. [if you want it to cool but be ready to fire, pop the bolt open and select to open bolt.] Whie in in fantasy land, belt feed option rather than mags would be great (still retaining open/closed bolt operation). [b]I also think the KAC project on modular suppressed weapons was a little premature, now they could probably make a successful integral suppressor to fit under the URX (100% Inconel of course) with 32-34DB suppression.[/b] Heavy duty gas tube would be neccassary and the integral suppressor might change the rifle length tube but it would be worth it.

Why the G17? I would have picked the SIG226 for 9mm. For .45, 1911, no question. However, that would only be for special ops and special purpose.

Glocks are a lot nicer than they look, they lack a safetey but Joe Cominolli can take care of that, they are very accurate out of the box something that SIG's may or may not be, My SIG 220 was terrible (5 inch groups with a single first round flyer 7 inches low and left from every mag) until I dropped in a Barsto barrel and groups shrunk to about 1.5inches at 25yds No flyer. I like 1911's but Glock is a good gun in my book.

I think the Glock is a decent sidearm, but I think you may be judging SIGs by one lemon (although I could be wrong). However I have had a couple of SIGs and they both performed extremely well. They feel a lot better than Glocks to me, but that is subjective. The only reason I no longer own any SIGs is because they aren't 1911s. I only wanted to worry about one type of sidearm with one set of controls. Although if a SIG P225 came along at the right time, i would pick it up in a heartbeat. The problem with sidearms is the lack of modularity and the ability to be modular. Everyone is going to feel differently about the grip, triggr pull, controls, etc. It's not like an AR where the pistol grip, stock, foregrip has dozens of options open to the operator.
