What do you think about this rifle vs other brand (oly,bush...)

Mine looks and works great. While friends AR's were jamming on Wolf ammo mine was plinking away. Get a Hogue grip. Polish the feed ramps and the *center* of the pins that the trigger components pivot on and you're all set. You won't need to do anything to it again, except clean it. And feed it!

I saw on this board that it doesn't have a chrome barrel, but on dpms website this is write that the m4 has a chrome-molly battel so ???

Chrome-moly is not the same as chrome lined. Teh chrome-lined will hold up better and resist corrosion better.

Chrome-moly = Chrome and Molybdenum steel alloy! Usually AISI 4340

I have 2 DPMS ARs. One Chrome lined, and one non
Chromed. They are both great rifles. The non chromed one seems to produce a lot more barrel heat???

Yes, your observation is correct.
There is less friction between a chrome-lined barrel and the bullet. Less friction = less heat. Chrome has a higher lubricity than steel.
