Default New barrel manufacturer's

Member Desert-Storm brought up an interesting point when he mentioned he had purchased a fake Rock-ola carbine from Riverbank with a Kahr (AO) barrel.
We know Criterion Barrel are currently manufacturing chrome lined carbine barrels for around $189 and I've seen them as high as $249.
Does anyone know who is manufacturing non-chrome lined barrels for around $150?
Sarco and Riverbank have them in stock. Could these be new AO barrels being re-sold?

I received a few of the CMP criterion barrels and they were not chrome lined.

According to Auto Ordnance, their barrels are purchased from Green Mountain Barrels

I purchased a Sarco barrel and it appears to be slightly different from the the Criterion, or the AO barrel

Any markings that distinguish the barrels from each other? It looks like Criterion makes chrome lined optional. What do they mean by chrome moly?

The Criterion barrels have CBI and the date on the RH side of the swaged gas cylinder with part numbers?.

The Sarco barrel I have has NO markings looks a bit like the Criterion bbl, but the gas cylinder is rougher

I will have to get back with you on the AO bbl. But I think it too was unmarked

At one time, DPMS was making carbine barrels. Not sure if they are still being made.

Chrome- moly is the type of metal used to make the barrel.
There are several series of this type steel.

I'm pretty sure Riverbank has used Kahr (AO) barrels for their fake Rock-ola marked barrels. I examined both at a gun show, they were the same.

Do the AO barrels come with chrome barrel threads and chamber like this one pictured?

The New in wrapper barrel I got for my carbine stripped receiver parts kit came from Israel. The rest of the parts were mixed USGI. I got it from someone in Mobile, AL.

I was inquiring about the barrel on a Rock-Ola on gunbroker, and the seller said that it was a Remington. When I replied that Remington didn't make carbine barrels, he stopped communicating.
