The DPMS and DSA barrels may not be chrome lined. They state Chrome moly and a couple of the DPMS specs specifically stated no chrome lining. Gotta be careful when doing a search for chrome, if you are looking for chrome lined. Chrome moly just means it isn't a stainless steel barrel, no lining.

source or links for that. because if i'm not mistaken, Colt makes their own uppers.

OP, check out Brownell's for uppers.

Colt may use the same source PSA uses for their forgings for their uppers. That's not unusual, since most receivers for all ARs come from only a few Forge houses and Colt uses several sources.

I'll look them up thank you fellas

Psa has stated before all of their chrome lined barrels hammer forged or not are made by FN so i would go with that as a complete upper and to axxe i did a little research CMT continental machine tool company makes thousands of receivers and parts and are contracted by different firearms companies, colt and psa are some of them.
