Going with 16″ barrel, but have this question now.
Chrome lined is my standard for a “real use to fight rifle,” remember I am in a real wet swamp area for much of my AO.
Here is a couple of MVT Forum Threads:
Chrome Lined 1/7 Barrels Are Good Enough
I don’t think anyone here is against new ways of doing things, but chrome lining has decades of proven performance in a variety of environments.
Given time nitriding may prove to be truly superior, but giving what I and many others are preparing for; up to a multi-generational “Event,” it would be quite embarrassing to change to this relatively new process only to learn it has a unknown longterm flaw.
As a firearms enthusiast I am interested in and encourage new developments.
As a Survivalist I need to be more pragmatic in my choices for a potential longterm “Event.”
Chrome lined. Colt or FN.

Chrome is certainly the proven standard.
Nitride is probably a bit more corrosion resistant, and is easier to make accurate, but is not as durable at high temperatures. Chrome stands up better to high volume shooting.
Whether or not you need that capability is up to you.
