do the Cold Hammer Forged barrels offer much more accuracy than the regular barrels? i want to get an upper with improved accuracy but im not too sure about going with a stainless steel one, so i was thinking about the cold hammer forged ones. what do you guys think i should do? thanks

The hammer forged barrels will not be as accurate as a good stainless barrel. The advantage of a CHF barrel is extended barrel life. They are also chrome lined which is not going to give the best accuracy. Yes, some chrome lined barrels will give great accuracy such as the FN bolt rifles but the chrome lined AR barrels are for extended life.

If accuracy is the goal get a good match grade stainless barrel.
