Black, new in box, I did open the box to check it out but have not mounted a scope in it or mounted it on a rifle.
This is the American Defense scope mount as seen (I am pretty sure this is a slightly newer version though) on John Noveske's rifle from the Recoil photoshoot (credit stickman)
Mine is the 1 inch tube, and I'd happily ship it to you insured for $195.00
USPS money order only (although I've flirted with setting up a paypal acct so if someone wants to pay that way it may encourage me to get it set up).
Email for pics if needed.
PS would consider trades for only the following:
Geissele SDC or SDE must be new or extremely like new
Noveske marked black AD Recon mount in 30mm new or used
Non-marked AD Recon mount in 30mm new plus 25 bucks cash.
