Which Muzzle brake for mini-14?

Help me decide. Here's the rifle in question:



now, should i go with the stainless brake:



or the flat black?



My worry is that if i get the stainless one....it won't match quite right and be slightly different.

Part of me feels a completely contrasting color (in this case, black) matches better than two different shades.

The other part of me feels I already have a few different shades of SS because of the accustrut.

What do you guys think?

If it were mine id go stainless. The accu strut doesnt look any different in the photo.
if the front site were black or the accu strut were black id go black.

Can you polish stainless if the shade is off a little and maybe hide the difference better?

Good luck and nice looking rifle,

Nathan

Definitely go with the stainless. A small mismatch will not be an issue.

I to have the mo rod in the mo reaper configuration. It does a great job on flash reduction. Very satisfied with the quality of product.

Here is a pic of my Mini-30 for comparison.

There is a minor color difference between the barrel and stabilizer but I like the black and stainless contrasts.
