How many out there feel that a chrome lined barrel in a battle rifle is the right way to go? As a hunter I have seen too many Remington 7400's fail to function due to rusted chambers. I have also seen a lot of rusted barrels from people not cleaning there guns properly after using them in the rain. I know non chrome provides better accuracy, but in a battle rifle would you not value reliability, ease of cleaning, the ability to fire mild steel bullets, and rust resistance over gilt edge accuracy? I had a lot of the portugese ammunition that had mild steel bullets it never hurt my SA FAL. Right now I am in the market for another gun and think I am going to insist on a chrome lined barrel and chamber. Jimmyp

A chromed lined barrel in a battle rifle is the only way to go and the correct way to go. A Rem 700 and an M14, although do the same in the end, are different tools. The difference in accuracy in an AR say for instance between a chromed lined and non chromed lined barrels is almost un-noticable. Shoot an M1A with a GI barrel if you have any doubts about the accuracy potential of a chrome lined barrel.

As far as accuracy in a chrome lined barrel, ask any Marine about there M16 at the 500 yard line.

Chrome lined for me, please... Personally, I would not own a battle rifle that didn't have a chrome lined bore and chamber...

OK then Chrome it is. Does DSA offer an FAL with a chrome lined barrel? Jimmyp

I like chrome lined barrels because they are so easy to clean.
