Allow me to translate to "Hooked on Phonics" since the clear photograph of mine did not make it obvious

The PA10 Gen 2 from Palmetto State Armory sells the COMPLETE rifle with Magpul 25 rd magazines

I provided the link and the suggestion.....

Supposedly they are more accurate but offer less barrel life. They just don't look right to be though, needs to be all black lol

The Pros of Stainless Steel Barrels

Extreme benchrest shooters, NRA High Power Long Range shooters and Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) shooters all demand “match grade” barrels—meaning barrels made of stainless steel that are NOT chrome lined. “Match grade” barrels are more accurate and the longer the range, the more apparent this becomes.

The Cons of Stainless Steel Barrels

The cons of match-grade barrels are that they wear out faster, they are harder to clean and they don’t resist corrosion as well as a chrome-lined barrel. Again, let’s clarify that most shooters will not wear out even a match grade barrel in their lifetime. As far as cleaning goes, if the barrel is broken in or “shot in” correctly, the barrel will have a burnishing that minimizes fouling and subsequently makes the barrel much easier to clean; however, still not as easy to clean as a chrome-lined barrel.
