Savage 99 scope base
Recently I traded for a Savage 99 EG that has been drilled & tapped. I'm thinking of mounting a Kollmorgen Bear Cub which is 26mm in dia. Ringwise the only choice is STD rings. I already have these.
I've been unable to find a base with matte finish to go with the scope. Gloss is readily available. My question is how best to "age" the gloss so it will look right with the old rifle and nearly-as-old scope?
