I've handled M16s pretty extensively. Never messed much with the civilian market ARs. I did handle an SR556 at a shop. You couldn't force me to buy it at that price and with so much forward weight.

Piston ARs are unfortunately like so many other doodads, they're an answer to a question that didn't really need to be asked.

The DI system, besides the first few years they were issued in Vietnam, has been a reliable system for... 40 years or so? And cleaning the DI guns has never been any earth shatteringly tortuous task, no more so than any other gun I've ever used.

To the chrome bore and chamber, or lack of, just clean it as you would any other gun.
