Bought my first rifle this week & now looking to get a scope.
Here's a pic http://www.marlinfirearms.com/images/cfba/zoom-XL7S.jpg

Should I get a black or silver scope? Never seen a silver scope on sterling silver barrel in person, not sure how good/bad it looks. Will the silver match or look like 2 different colors?

Thanks for any advice/input & good luck to everyone this season!

 nice looking rifle.

I'd say get a matching scope, I think it would look sweet.  Of course more important is that you get a quality scope you like no matter what color it is, but I still say a silver scope would look nice on that rifle.

as far as matching, you have to find one that matches. Most scope manufacturers make scopes in stainless, silver, black, etc. , then you can get a matte finish or gloss.  I wouldn't get anything glossy if you'll be hunting with it.

First rule of optics:

Get the best glass you can afford.

..don't worry about the color.

 obviously, best optics that you can afford...

as for the scope..., i have quite a few composite stock/stainless steel barreled rifles and i always put on a scope w/a black matte finish (match the stock instead of the barrel)...

in my opinion, i really like the combination...
