Why is it so hard to find a decent silver scope in a 4-16x for under $400, i've been looking for a wile so if someone could point me in the right direction i would be so very thankful

Possibly because it is so hard to match with all the available silver finishes that the rifles come in that most people just by black because it goes with anything.  So there is not much of a market for them.  And a 4-16x is really more scope than most hunters use and buy anyway, so they are probably not near as popular to begin with.

 Yep! I've read MANY complaints about the silver scopes not matching the rifles finish AFTER they've bought the scope.

The Rifles come in so many different colors of stainless and silver that it is hard to get them to match the color of the scopes. but here is one that is in the price range. listed on the sample list. Good luck on your build.

Yeah thats true, but the matte scope and stainless rifle just doesnt look as good IN MY EYES but if thats what im going to have to get for a decent scope in that magnification then i gues thats what i have to do. Smile
