Looking for scope for a stainless savage 220 and was wondering if the silver bushnell elite will match the color somewhat.

Thanks,
Mike

Likely, "somewhat" is the correct description. I've seldom seen a silver / gray scope that matches perfectly.

I have a savage 116 with a silver bushnell elite on top, and it looks right at home!  Slight difference but its not bad at all.  I heard from a reputable shop that its best to use contrasting rings when mounting a stainless/stainless setup.  i.e.. (So the rings and bases on it are matte black.)

In other words I'm saying go for itCool

For me it's more important what I see looking down the tube vs appearance on the rifle.Smile
