All BCM Uppers feature chromed bore and chamber

The upper in your link is among the top choices available among DI uppers on the net, (mid lenght gas too, which is nice).

Primary Rifle:
BCM 16 inch, LW barrel w/ EOtech 512.

straight from the bottom of the page you linked

Chrome Bore and Chamber
One of the first modifications that were made to the original M16 in the mid 1960’s was the addition of the chrome lined bore and chamber. It is now a world wide standard in the industry for a battle rifle. The chrome bore and chamber is harder than the barrel steel and on the USGI M16/M4 rifles will aid in chambering, extraction, and reliability. It increases velocity, and also resist against fouling and corrosion from extended use in the field. This gives the end user a longer barrel life with less required time in maintenance and cleaning.
i run a light weight middy bfh from bcm on my carbine. damn fine upper/barrel combo i would say prolly the best one out there for a shtf rifle.

As already mentioned...Chromed lined? Yes. And it says so on your link.

This is an excellent upper. All parts of it are outstanding. But it's quite overpriced in my opinion. If price is no option and this is precisely what you're looking for, buy away! If you have a careful budget, I suggest you shop around a bit.

And I say all this as a huge fan of anything BCM, with a deep stable of their products in my safe. That's just a really hefty price IMO. I see this as a $450 barreled upper with a $300 handguard. That's $750. They're asking almost $1K, delivered. There are better options IMO. Here's one (scroll down on linked page): DD 16" ML, Noveske NSR 15.5" handguard, w/ M16 BCG & CH: $789. That's a better product IMO, for $200 less.

Another big BCM Fan here... I happen to have the non-hammer forged version but otherwise it's excellent and of course chrome lined.
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.
