hk is billing the mr in mr556 as a mATCH rIFLE, dont know of many match rifle shooters concerned about a chrome lined barrel.

i only have one ar with a chrome lined barrel and that is only because aac makes their .300blk that way.

no nitriding? have not seen anyone say it is a issue. you can always get it done later.

spend less time paying attention to what spec it doesnt/does have, buy one and spend more time shooting.

Chrome lining is not just for corrosion protection. It greatly adds in reliability. Makes the chamber much slicker. The "match rifle" is bull****. People wanted a carbine not a bench gun.
