Actually, the Arisaka type 99 was the first mass produced military rifle with a chrome lined barrel...

My misunderstanding. Somehow I got the idea that the later Mosin's were chromed. I stand corrected.
How about the SKS- were any of them chrome-lined?

I know that the Russian one were and think that the Chinese were also, I'm unsure if any others were.

Sorry, I'm not up to date on SKS and AK barrels. I would assume that they were chrome lined because they are semi-auto rifles and the barrel will heat up pretty quickly with multiple rounds. The Mosin-Nagant was never chrome lined. It had a very short handled bolt that makes it awkward to operate rapidly. It was designed to be operated by Russian soldiers using their left hand. They would be hunkerd down in a trench or foxhole with the gun to their shoulder and sighting on the enemy. They would fire the weapon while mantaining their grip on the rifle stock, finger near the trigger with their right hand while reaching over the top to throw the bolt up, back and forward with the left hand.

I didn't know that I just found it easier to operate with my left hand. Makes sense though

I feel I now need to experiment.

The solder got into a fight and as soon as he could thereafter, he poured the water or water/ammonia mixture down the barrel to nutrilize the corrosive nature of the primers, then he ran a rag down it with oil from the other side of the bottle. Some of them peed down their barrels when they had no water or ammonia. My ex-son-in-law should have peed down his barrel.

Ammonia is as bad as the corrosive primers. Put a drop of ammonia on the receiver and then check it a few days later. The idea behind windex was the soap and water it contained. Just flush w/ boiling water after shooting. Then clean.

My 1953 Soviet (Izhevsk) SKS was not chrome lined.

Okay I was wrong, thanks for the correction.

It may have been at Tula, or on certain model years. Never say wrong when it comes to Soviet rifles. Throughout WWII the 91/30 when through many changes. You just never really know.
