Douglas has a barrel both in stainless and regular steal both and are air gage chamberings cut (matched) for the Springfield Rifles $310.00 and they are high quality.
This is what I did with my mini 14 that I shot the barrel out on. I fired about 200 shots without cleaning and copper fouled the heck out of it then I used KG bore polish and "polished" the bore for about two hours. Brought the barrel back to life. Also worked on my .300 win mag while I waited for the new one to show up.

"Let glorious acts more glorious acts inspire,
And catch from breast to breast the noble fire!
On valour's side the odds of combat lie,
The brave live glorious, or lamented die;" - Iliad, Book V
