Have the base bead blasted (I believe that it is just aluminum, as are most) by a local machine shop, etc

You wont find one in silver, you can blast or paint it but they look fine in black.

I have the XS scope rail on my 444 XLR, and before I bought it I contacted XS about a silver finish to match the stainless. It was not offered. Anyway, in discussing their product, I asked if I could bead blast the finish, and I was informed that the finish on their mounts actually increases the strenght of the parts, and they suggested that I did not do that! I just opted to leave mine the way they were (and they are strong and the finish is tough). By the way, after this years deer season I am tempted to have the stainless bead blasted or finished in a flat black. I mean, that stainless Marlin is beautiful the way it reflects light from a full moon, or direct light from the sun, but, for hunting I think I may have to go in another direction.

The finish is anodized and is much harder than the aluminum under it. Bead blasting will remove the anodizing and they your down into the much softer aluminum base metal. If you want to do anything at all just paint it, but they don't look at all bad blue.

You know if you got a barrel mount then you need a scout scope with a longer eye relief. You can get silver colored standard rings and a silver colored scope for much less money.
