I am new to this board but have been reading the posts for quite some time in order to gather information. Yesterday I broke down and purchased a Colt M4. Difficult decision with all the other manufactures producing similar firearms. The question I have is as follows:
I do not know if the barrel on my M4 is Chrome lined. How critical is this. I own and have owned numerous firearms, 44 mags, 45 acp, 22 rimfire's, 30-06's, 30-30's the list goes on. Everytime I go and shoot my firearms they all get a thorough cleaning. I use them but I take care of them. If in fact the barrel is not Chromed lined what is the significance given that I clean them after a day of shooting.
None of the aforementioned firearms that I own have Chrome Lined Barrels and I have never had a problem. Some of these weapons are 30 years old. Any comments would be appreciated so I may learn the significance of Chromed Lined Barrels.

Thanking you in advance for your comments.

Welcome to the board and welcome to the "black fever" [beer] Yes, the barrel is chrome-lined. The 6400c is the only Colt Match Target with a chrome-lined bore and chamber. The others just have a chromed chamber. IMO, the beauty about chrome-lining is I don't have to break the barrel in and it makes cleaning easier.

I love chrome. Screw quarter inch groups Id rather have a gun that shoot 20k rounds before the accuracy is even a little effected. BTW M16A1s with chrome lined bores will shoot straight after about 40k rounds.
