Leupold no longer lists any silver-finish scope models!! Waaaaah!
So, I will have to go with a matte black one of sorts for Indiana woodchucks. Name a good Leupold Gold Ring scope model for chucks up to 500 yards. I plan to mount this on a Weatherby Vanguard Weatherguard rifle in .243 Win. The rifle has a black Monte Carlo Griptonite stock that features gray pistol grip and forend inserts. The gun's metalwork is Tactical Grey Cerakote which appears silver in the bright light. Weatherby offers several different VANGUARD® LIGHTWEIGHT SCOPE MOUNTS by Talley in 1" Medium, 1" Low and 30mm Low. They all come in matte black but 1" Medium offers a silver option. I don't know which mounts would work best for the appropriate Leupold varmint scope I need. Should scope mount selection be best made on the advice of a gunsmith? Would matte black scope mounts look best with a matte black scope on a silver barrel? I would want mounts that either match the finish of the scope or the gun's metal work.
