I mounted a matte Nikon on my stainless/laminate Ruger and I think it looks pretty good.

Here are a couple pics of my Savage 93R17-BVSS with the Sweet 17 3-9X40 scope mounted on it.

Got a matte Zeiss on my stainless Sako 75. Looks just fine.

I always use Matte black scopes with black rings on my stainless rifles.

Remington XCR in 375H&H topped with a Kahles 2.2-7X36 in Leuplod rings and bases.



Remington Model 7 in 269rem topped with a Kahles 2.2-7X36 in Leupold rings and one-piece base.

I like the Matt on stainless guns better the stainless on stainless. With the later, the colors seldom really match and I guess I prefer the more total contrast. This is even more true if I have a Black Synthetic stock. I am picking up my Stainless Savage 270WSM Varmit rifle next week and plan to put a Matt scope on that.

I agree with James B. I have a matte black Leupold VXII on my stainless/laminate Ruger and I love the way it looks. I'm going home over easter so I'll take pics of it if I can remember.
