Did any of the G.I. carbines come with a chrome barrel? Just want to know if it is something to look for when shopping for a carbine.

I do not think anyone makes/made a chrome lined barrel for a M1 Carbine, but the good news is that there is not any corsoive ammon out there as well.

That is why you typicaly do not heal about the conditions of the barrels in reguards to the Carbines as you do the Garands

This is my take,

YMMV,

From what I read ..No.. The US military did contract replacement barrels out and a company made some that was chromed lined. But they was rejected from what I remember. The chrome process was shotty. They are considered JUNK. But the same company made some nonchromed barrels also and they are quite good. Im sorry I can't remember the name. I will go look in my safe later and see what I have. I built one on the nonchromed barrels .I bought it from Orion 7 years ago. WarDawg

OK I went and looked. It is a HERLO barrel. They was an subcontractor from what I remember. My nonchromed barrel shoots very well. But the chromed ones was rejected and are considered junk for the most part .From what Ive gathered anyhow. Cheers WarDawg
