It depends. A Chrome lined barrel will give you somewhat longer barrel life at the exchange of less overall accuracy. If you're buying this for general shooting, and as a "fun gun", which most AR-15 shooters do, I wouldn't worry about it either way. A Chrome lined barrel is more desirable with an AK-47 because it will be more forgiving when shooting corrosive ammunition. There isn't much of that floating around in .223. So to answer your question it would be nice if it had one, but I wouldn't consider it a deal breaker if it didn't.
