This is an FN quality barrel, simply put. Primary definitely has error when it says only chamber is chrome lined. I ran a bore scope it was chrome lined entirely. I would reference FN product page for better specification description. https://fnestore.com/ar15-barrel-16-bb-m16-556-midlength
Kinda pricey but good barrel
The description only says chrome lined chamber but it appears to be full chrome lined bore and chamber.
FN Barrel 16"

Have not installed yet. I'm sure it will meet FN standards for quality.
<br>Purchased an FN509 Tactical and love that gun.
One awesome barrel
Got an email from PA back in October 2020 saying this barrel was on sale for 179.99 so I bought it. Arrived in the mail and looked great. Decided I would do another upper build. Bought an Anderson upper receiver and a BCM handguard to finish my build. FZ BCG and all is done. Took to the range and was shooting less than 1 inch groups at 100 yards. I couldn't believe it. I have heard people say that all ar barrels are the same. Not true! You get what you pay for. I would recommend this barrel to anyone.

I purchased one of these barrels for a complete gun build I was doing. The chrome lining, pressure testing, and MPI were great. If it's good enough for military units it's more than good enough for me, this barrel is more accurate than I'll ever be. Since the barrel and bcg are the heart of the weapon I didn't want to skimp out on the Barrel.
