1) Extends barrel life.
2) Easier to clean.
3) very rust resistant (more a military issue though)
4) chrome lining in the chambers makes extraction easier (therefore more reliable).

Also slightly more velocity, slower barrel heating but the average user won't notice these.

In general, it decreases the potential for accuracy, but a properly done barrel will be just as accurate as an unlined barrel most of the time.

MOST important:

3) very rust resistant (more a military issue though)
4) chrome lining in the chambers makes extraction easier (therefore more reliable).

reasons why i like it

I just purchased a 16" Mid-length RRA chrome lined upper from Legal Transfers(Pete).

He sells just the barrel, but it is hard to find one in stock.

Bayonet works correctly on mid-system.

It is heavy under the handguards.

I like it better than CAR length.
