Question about the new HK SP5 (semi auto MP5) is the barrel chrome lined and is the fluted chamber also chromed?
You do know that raw barrels that haven't been finished are silver/chrome in color, right? The barrel will last far longer than the number of rounds you will put through it. Go shooting!That sure looks like a chrome bore to me, can you take a pic of the fluted chamber .45ACP?
MP5 barrels have never been chrome lined. But sure glad you can tell the difference between chrome and the color raw barrels are where the finish doesn't cover, where they were crowned.
Like the backwards bullet, most likely a mistake in the sheet.No rumor. The original HK SP5 new product literature clearly articulated "Chrome bore". Looking at the HK website now, those words aren't there. Hmmm.
There's a picture of the new product literature with the chrome bore reference in this review:
I just got off the phone with HK Customer service. They were told “No” it isn’t chrome lined. It does have a proprietary metal treatment to prevent wear and rust.
I'm not gonna say that @bystok and Schultzie were alone together in the back room of the Ashburn facility... But he does know things.Outside of doing this, personally, I think I would have trusted bystok's answer. After all, he is a member of the HK Shooting Team. He is probably privy to information that no Mortal humans's brain could fathom. :wink:
