Fella's;
 
I'm in the end stages of completing a custom rifle and am now looking for a scope to complement it.
The gun itself will have a highly polished deep blue finish, and therefore I want a gloss scope on it.  That appears to be a problem these days.
 
If this were the perfect world, the scope would be something in the 2.5-10X to 4-12X range, 30mm tube, gloss finish, and a mil-dot reticle, with A/O.  I now strongly doubt that's going to be available anywhere under any circumstances other than my funding a new factory.  I'm in no position to do that.  So, I'm hoping that someone here knows of a company that can deliver a nice gloss scope with at least a set of fine crosshairs.
 
So far, the only canidate for the position appears to be the Leupold VX2 3-9X 33mm EFR.  The glass shows as being available in gloss, but only with the standard duplex reticle.  Frankly, I'm hoping there are some other options available.  I actually called Leupold today & asked if the 3-9x40 Mark AR Mod 1, with the mil-dot reticle, could go to the custom shop & have a gloss finish put on it.  The answer was an emphatic "no!". 
 
Therefore, I'm hoping that someone on this site knows of a possibility.  Thanks for your attention.

I'll check the size of that scope sir, but I suspect it's too big.  I do appreciate the thought though.
