OK....I have this friend who has a question about gas port erosion and barrel life.

It has been my friends understanding that gas port erosion usually starts to become a factor at about the point when most conventional chrome lined barrels crap-out anyway (about 10,000 rounds). So it is usually not much of a problem if you go ahead and replace your barrel.

Now, it has come to our attention that certain companies are producing barrels that have the bore plated with a protective material and that they claim that it increases the barrel life to somewhere between 20,000-30,000 rounds.

Now comes the real question, if the bore was plated with the material and the gas port was not, would gas port erosion become a significant problem if the barrel did actually last somewhere between 20,000-30,000 rounds.

Thanks ahead for all your alls help

Have a Happy New Year
