View Full Version : Post-WW2 Garand barrel question

March 24, 2009, 17:08
I hope some knowledgeable Garand owners can help me. I saw a nice-looking M1 for sale recently. The barrel was dated 6-55. Are the Garand barrels from the 1950s chrome-lined?

Thanks for the info! :smile:

No USGI Garand barrels were ever chrome lined. The Army had decided to begin chrome lining barrels by the end of WWII, but they never implemented it for Garands.
