Nothing saying that its chrome LINED. Is this something that will affect your decision?

I bought the version they were selling with a front sight base installed for the pink build I did for my wife for Christmas. We have only shot a couple hundred rounds thru it so far but I think it is GTG. It is acceptably accurate and cleans up easy.

I ordered one last week on Friday and it was shipped on Monday. They ship USPS Priority with signature confirmation required. I wasn't home for delivery so I'll pick it up at the PO on Tuesday. Won't have it on a rifle ready to shoot for about another month but I'll post pics and general impressions when I get it. So far I'm happy - they shipped it really fast, emailed copy of invoice, shipping notification with tracking #, etc...

I have bought three complete uppers from JSE over the past couple of years. Not a single problem with any of them. They kept prices down during the panic and answer emails quickly when you have questions about products they may have for sale.

Purchased a "Back Ordered" YHM 16" 1X7 THREADED FLUTED BARREL on Saturday. By Monday i was notified it was in stock and shipping. Received it on Thursday. Now that is service. Great communication and prompt delivery!

Same experience as most of the replies, jse is a great company to deal with, 2 uppers I bought from them run flawless, just ordered another one yesterday.

thanks for all the replies, makes it a lot easier to place an order after hearing all the good reviews of the company.

I've purchased uppers, lowers and other parts from them several times, they're good to go.

I just built a rifle with one of those. Have not shot it yet but it looked good. Also a great company to deal with

I've got a 7.5" pistol barrel from them and its gtg. No issues in 500 or so rounds.

I have ordered from them on numerous occasions.  They are GTG.

Got a full upper from them... no problems whatsoever.

Nitriding is an alternative to chrome lining.  It's supposed to last as long, if not longer.  Since it's a treatment and not a coating, the barrel's rifling can be cut to size (chrome lining requires an oversize bore to compensate for lining thickness) so accuracy is better in a nitrided barrel.
