Or brushed stainless?

The brushed stainless seems to 'match' better than the all black one, at least in the not very high quality pictures from a distance. The Stainless seems more out of place in the closeup, would like to see the closeup with the black.

Honestly, I think the only true solution is to send it my way and let me test it out a while, and I'll give you a stellar assessment when I return it.

Black. Less glare, the better. Easier to hide when the time comes. Angel
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

Damn, I thought the stainless looked better (I'm the one who voted stainless btw). It's actually the same muzzle device, I got it used for ten bucks, and it was black, but covered in dings and dents and tool marks. I put it in the lathe to clean it up and brush it. So now the question is, do I keep it the way it is, or spray paint it black? It will look nicer than the first picture since I got all the imperfections out.

The imperfections aren't the issue, IMHO. The finish does not look the same, and will not look the same. From the distance pics, the stainless looks a lot more of a match, but the picture quality isn't great and the closeup makes the stainless look more 'off'.

If you've got stainless parts on the gun (by the pic it looks like it) then that's what I would go with, but seeing them both close up would give a better idea.

I also have another option, I could sandblast it. And I could also powdercoat it matte black.

Anyway, it's not a big deal because this is just temporary until I get a suppressor attached. So I don't want to go too crazy. The only point to this piece was to keep the muzzle further from the shooter's left hand, and add some weight to the front to reduce muzzle rise.

The more I look at this (beautiful, BTW) gun the more I say stainless. That's what I'm going with.

The black looks more 'off' as its so much darker than the rest of the gun.

I'll second that.

What can I say I'm a sucker for two-tone. Stainless.
