There are advantages to the chrome lined barrel. True. I wonder though, why does the .mil obtain "nitrided" or "melonite" M2 50 cal barrels then? From what I have read elsewhere that the melonite process yields a more wear resistant barrel than chrome.

I do not know whether it is similarly resistant to rust and corrosion, however.
