I have seen this discussed before, and claims made, but have never seen it in writing from them before. LMT as manufacturer of M&A kits Scroll down to the "Who makes M&A's stuff" heading.

They should also state that chrome lining is not just for full-auto but for corrosion resistance and easier extraction..I would think primarily thats what its for along with a longer barrel life.

I agree, and also believe there is a lot of other inaccurate or at least misleading information to be found there as well, but the LMT confirmation was interesting. I would assume that the parts supplied by M&A to LMT for assembly are not subject to the same quality control as the parts that LMT uses to build their own firearms, but at least you should be getting some decent assembly out of them.

Funny thing. In the front of their catalog it says they use wilson and Mike rock blanks.
and " Our blanks are then sent to a current military contractor"
" Once a barrel blank has reached the contractor it is rifled utilizing the button broach technique"
Strange I thought blanks were rifled.

I spoke with them at the last funshow here in WI and they said that LMT has always made their parts, but not their barrels. M&A uppers are basically LMT uppers with non-chrome-lined barrels.

LMT uses Rock Creek Barrels. Very fine barrels, used on many top of hte line sniper rifles.
