Who can chrome line a barrel for me? Iím not looking for the cheapest, but the best. I donít mind paying 3-4 times more to have it done correctly.

Thanks, Dan

I was under the impression that it can only be done during the manufacturing process, lest you have problems later. I could be wrong.

Contact Robar. They do all sorts of work & they might do this also. Robar is one of the best in the business.

It will be a Yugoslavian M92 Krinkov SBR. And possibly at a later point in time a FAL.

Thanks, Dan

May I ask why you want it chrome lined? Unless you plan on neglecting them, chrome lining seems a bit superfluous if you'll maintain them properly.

Because I like having the option to neglect my rifle. All of my rifles are for hard core use. If I have to pay a couple hundred bucks for a rifle that will give an extra 0.01% its money well spent.

I realize this isnít for everyone however.

Thanks, Dan

Can't chrome line a barrel that wasn't intended to be chromed. The chrome will add a thousandths or so to the inside of the bore and causing chamber pressures to increase dramatically......

I seriously doubt that the chrome will do anything but good for an in the Yugo barell that comes with the "virgin" Yugo kits that have been showing up lately. But you can bet it will change the pressure on a much more serious note if you took your run of the mill FAL barell and chromed it. Due to the round, the action, the tolerences, and even the gas system.

Chroming "any" barrel that was not intended to be chromed will make bad things happen........

Why don't you just take care of your rifles. It seems like you do since you said you like having the ability to, rather than you do or that you would like them to hold up to your neglect, so why not continue your practices?

It may just be a myth, but apparently those AK style rifles don't really stop.
My M44 was made for hardcore use and not only was it not chrome lined, it was fired with corrosive ammo and not cleaned correctly but it also shoots about 1" groups at 50 yards.

Seems to me like chrome lined bores are just some sort of novelty to me...

Guys,

No offense, but he didn't ask for your opinions on whether or not he should do it or how he should treat his rifles. He asked for the best person for the job...

(I would definately do some research as to whether or not the rifle in question can be safely chromed though.:D)

Like the man said... "...special blanks and reamers, made larger than spec..."

www.ar15barrels.com/faq.shtml

"Chrome lined barrels are only available when a company mass produces them. The chrome needs to be applied after the chamber work is done. This requires special barrel blanks and chamber reamers, made larger than spec and then plated back down to spec size. It would be cost prohibitive to do custom barrels with chrome lining. Any barrel that is chrome lined is certainly not a match grade barrel. It is not possible to put the attention into the chamber details that you need for extreme accuracy when you are mass producing barrels."

Get a barrel that's already chrome lined, and swap that out?

Email Ned: http://www.m-guns.com/index.html If anyone knows who can do it, Ned should know.

40-50 years ago Weatherby would chrome plate rifle bores for you. They had to be in pristine condition. The first military rifle to have a chromed bore was the Japanese 7.7 mm Arisaka.

i know of no one who will chrome plate the bore of a used rifle today.

the barrel would need to be rechambered and re-rifled as the chamber and bore start out oversize prior to chroming, this is why with some WASRs with thin chrome lining will bore test like a bore thats had thousands of FA rnds fired through it.... When The arsenal inspects a barrel the first test is to measure bore and chamber it the first rod will insert then its thin on chrome they move on from there......

Kind of like alsaqr, I remember reading about the old Marker Machine Co. that would hard chrome the bore of a finished rifle (and black chrome the outside.)
They said the buildup was only .0002" which would not make a significant difference in barrel-bullet fit.
