Any input on the best stainless or silver finish scope? Got a new white gold medallion so wanting to keep the scope same quality. Any input would be appreciated. Merry Christmas!

I had a Leupold Vari-X III in silver that I mounted on a stainless Browning A-Bolt and hated it so bad I bought a neoprene cover for it. It was so bright I was actually embarrassed walking into the woods for fear of the deer laughing at me.

Silver on a scope isn't a measure of quality; it's only aesthetics. I actually think black scopes look better on stainless rifles anyway.
