 Which is best as far as over all barrel durability?

Stainless would be the most durable. And it won't rust...ever.

Chrome lined barrels are good because the inside won't rust. (Just found this out myself)

I think chrome moly is what most of the barrels are made from. Usually you can get chrome moly barrels chrome lined. Overall I know SS is better. Stronger and will never rust. And chrome lining is good (not needed on a SS barrel).

Chrome lined will far outlast any other barrel on an AR-15.  They are rumored to be slightly less accurate, but for the vast majority of shooting chrome is the only way to go.

Can anyone recommend some companies to get a chrome moly barrel chrome lined?  What should I expect to get this done (and done right)?

Thanks

Chrome lining can't be done after the fact.  The chrome is taken into account when the bore and chamber are cut.  Buy a chrome barrel to begin with.
