Matte Black or Silver Scope On Stainless Rifle?

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

Im getting a new Remington 700 SPS Stainless, and im wondering what you guys think about silver scopes on stainless rifles. Im fairly sure i'll be getting a Nikon Buckmaster 4.5-14x40. Any photo comparisons would be great.

Thanks guys.

I have a Ruger 10/22 with the silver action and a SS barrel, purchased complete from Wally World. I put a silver SIMMONS .22 Mag scope on it and couldn't be happier. Looks sharp and is very reliable ... and accurate. Personal prefference. I simply like the look.

I have 2 stainless rifles that wear matte black zeiss scopes. I also have a stainless rifle that wears an elite silver scope. They all look very good. Its all in what you like.

Of the SS rifles I've owned, I also enjoyed the look of a SS rifle with silver scope and black rings/bases in a black synthetic stock. Another SS rifle that would turn heads, was a Ruger MKII SS with their SS rings holding a Silver Elite 3200 scope and all held in a brown tone laminate stock. Both were good looking rifles to my eye and the difference being the type stock your SS rifle has, IMO. Simply a matter of what looks correct to your eye, of course.

Been pondering the same question...I am leaning towards the black matte scope. Please post pics of what you end up with.

I put a silver 3-9x40 vxII on my m77 mkII SS/boat paddle stock. If i could do it over i would go with a matte black scope, its already shiney enough..

I prefer matte black scopes on my stainless rifles, because the color of the silver colored scopes doesn't match the color of stainless rifles. YMMV

My wife has 2 rifles in all stainless with matching Leupold scope. I on the other hand went with a flat black finish on my rifle scope, which was also a Leupold.

Silver. If it doesn't match it won't shoot right.
