Welcome to the OT forums. Finding what you are seeking may be a tall order. I'd not particularly shy away from Weaver. What rifle / caliber is this for?

Here is something close

Welcome to OT, 6mm!

I don't believe what you're looking for exists. There's the Weaver "T" 36X40 competition scope, but other than it, I know of no other >= 20X scopes in silver.

Silver scopes in general are falling out of fashion, and especially high magnification versions, not to mention at < $500 retail price. Silver colored scopes just aren't in high demand, so the manufacturers have largely dropped them from their lineup.

The fact is, the silver scopes in the past almost never actually matched the look of stainless rifles anyway, and black goes with everything.

Black is the new silver.

+1.  My dad originally put a Leupy 3-9x on my 300 WM that he gave me for college graduation.  When I fixed it, I went with the functionality over the form.  I recommend you get the scope that does the job and shoot, shoot shoot!

Here's my current setup - It's wearing a 4.5-14x50 Zeiss Conquest (from the Sample List, I might add)...

Thank you everyone for the response. I will probably go with a black scope
