It’s more expensive, though. Chrome is a cheap way to gain a little marketing edge. Many high-end custom barrel makers won’t use chrome. They say it affects accuracy. The most popular stainless steels currently in the AR market are 410, 416, and 416-R stainless, with 416-. R widely considered to be the better material. The main difference between 416 and 416-R is that 416-R. has the addition of molybdenum and a lower content of sulfur when compared to standard 416 stainless. steel.Nitriding is both easier and cheaper to perform than chrome lining. The bottom line is that the process costs less to perform, which means cheaper barrels. Now, that's not to say that you're automatically going to pay less. You might, depending on the manufacturer, but there are still a lot of QC procedures that go into this.Stainless steel can be easily nitrided, but it is very difficult to add chrome to stainless steel.

The protection is in two parts. First, the iron-phosphate layer itself is protective. Second, the surface is bead blasted before the parkerizing chemical bath ... This dark grey or black "rust" forms a very thin layer on the steel, but because of the low temperatures and less caustic nature it doesn't penetrate the steel very much. This makes it both less durable and less even a finish than hot caustic blueing or Parkerizing. Hot caustic blueing is also a controlled "rusting" process.With today's typical 1:9 twist rate, a conventional steel barrel should last about 3,000 rounds, a chrome moly steel alloy should last about 5,000 rounds.
