DSA SA58 and STG58 - Chrome lined barrels?

I've heard the STG58 isn't chrome lined, are they? How about the SA58?

Neither are chrome lined but the STG58 does have a chrome lined chamber.

Approximately how many rounds would it take to wear out one of these barrels?

every now and then dsa gets a batch of chrome lined barrels from FN. you have to ask...

STG58 isn't chrome lined, but it's hammer forged and a beauty.

Their catalog lists a 21" "G1" barrel. "Hammer forged, chrome lined." Item 00121G1. No price listed- "Call"

87!

I have heard that the 308 is pretty easy on barrels and will last much longer then a lot of other calibers like the 5.56. I guessing you can get well over 30,000-50,000.

Agree withthe above. The no1 factor will be how fast (hot) you get your barrel.

what about the stainless steel DSA Barrels?

DSA did a test on one, I believe it was their barrel. 10,000 rounds non stop and it was shot out by the end. So semi it should last a hell of alot longer.
