Chrome is very hard and very smooth. It is harder to scratch, doesn't pit as easily as plain steel, so it is much easier to keep clean.

Just looking at the flyer, and the old turn of the century sears catalog my grandmother had, does anyone else besides me wish that they could go back in time and buy up all the guns you wish you could have?

Man, even my broke a55 would be able to afford some pretty awesome weaponry. I think my grandfather paid something like 65 bucks for his 1912 manufacture Colt 1911. It's now worth anywhere from $1500 to $4k depending on who is asked. Coincidentally the lower price came from the guy who wanted to buy it.

Back in the 1950's there was still corrosive ammo floating around, plus for the hunter that may spend extended time in the field, your bore would not rust.
