Cliff, Thanks for the reply,but let me be more specific.Will a stainless steel barrel have the same "slipperiness" as a chrome lined barrel?I saw the Olympic Arms M4 clone and it has a 416 ss barrel.It is in my price range and looks awesome but most opinions here lean toward chrome lining.Could this be a "compromise".Also, is there a downside to a ss barrel? Thanks

There are no downsides to S.S. barrels. In my opinion, stainless barrels are superior to steel in every way except perhaps throat erosion with sustained full auto fire (abuse).
