Does anyone else have an issue with this?  It seems that whenever I shop for an appropriate scope for a rifle, the scope that seems perfect to me (quality, price, eye relief, magnification, etc.) is offered only in matte finish if my rifle is glossy blue.  Are glossy scopes going out of style?  Only one of my rifles (and one shotgun) is parkerized or matte.  The rest are blued to a nice shiny finish.  Wouldn't a matte scope just look wrong on them?  Am I just being too anal?

I can tolerate a matte scope on a blued rifle, but a gloss scope on a matte rifle is just wrong.

I'm with ya on this one, wecole. That's why I have antique, outdated, built like a tank, steel tube Weavers on my rifles.The scope manufacturers have forgotten how to build "pretty" scopes.

I've purchased 2 off of Gunbroker.com recently. The fleabay scopes sell for too much money. The pressure is lower at Gunbroker.
