Which manufacturer offer 20" chrome lined barrel complete upper?Pretty much all of them! You're in luck.

CMMG uppers are an awesome value. If you have a little more cash, I'd go with BCM or LMT. Colt and Noveske are top-drawer. All of the manufacturers listed generally make solid, reliable rifles that will serve you well. You have to decide which features and which small improvements in fit-and-finish are worth paying for. In all honest, as a new AR owner, I would stick with the basics.

20" is a great choice, by the way! The rifle-length builds always shoot the nicest, IMO. It's how the system was originally designed, after all.

How about a SS 20" barrel? Any leads...?

Many have SS offerings: Olympic, Model 1, Bushmaster, and smaller firms like White Oak and Compass Lake.

FWIW, White Oak seems the best buy for a ss barreled upper. For a moly barrel, Armalite seems the best value, although mine did not have a properly staked gas key. easy fix, and no problems so far.

RRA makes 20" SS barrels and I have them for sale! I also have the CMMG chrome lined in government profile and light weight.

White Oak FTW! I've been very happy with RRA too. I have a 20" Lothar Walther stainless I've yet to use, but I have confidence it will be very good.
all the best,
Mike

The Retro M16A1 complete barreld USGI uppers have dried up at web vendors of note and price has doubled on the EE at ar15.com & other AR related forum/boards.

I picked up an Armalite SS 20" 1/8 heavy barrel a while back. Just shot it recently. It doesn't like std 55grn stuff but it performed very well with some 77grn reloads.

From what I've read CMMG is very good quality and it's fairly inexpensive too.
