Pics of Blued Action and SS Barrel

I've decided to build a .300 WM. I would like to build it on a stainless action, but I've been having a hard time finding one. I do have a .30-06 that I bought as a donor rifle, but it has a blued action. How would a blued action with a fluted stainless steel barrel look? Could someone post some pics for me or point me in the right direction?

    I think they look great that way, especially with a bead blasted barrel. I think some of the Winchester Coyotes were that way. Real sharp. Or coat the whole action and barrel, Chercote or Duracote.

    If you don't care for the 2-tone look, the Robar NP3 finish is very close to bead blasted stainless. I had an Encore frame coated and unless you get the light just right, you can't see the difference between the frame and barrel.

    I forgot about that. I saw a gun at a local gunshop that had that done. I have to say, it looked pretty nice. I like that bead blasted look.
