Correct me if I'm wrong but AI barrels (be it Border, Bartlein, etc) are Stainless steel, correct? Or is there some sort of special lining/treatment?

    Never heard of them lining their barrels.

    I thought some Sakos are chrome lined?

    I would bet the farm the Sako is not lined. I also am pretty sure AI does not line their barrels eighter. I have seen quite a few chrome lined barrels and neighter my TRG or the Border and Bart barrels Dave does for AI have been lined that I have seen. I do beleve that a hammer forged barrel when done properly will have more resistance to errosion than a cut or button barrel. But then agan the AI barrels seem to last very good, and from my experience better than other cut barrels. But in all actuallity it is very hard to do barrel life comparisons b/c there are too many variables. Just my .02.
