I'd paint it OD Green, to blend with your stock.

Awsome looking rifle! I love the SS barrel and black muzzle break. Planning the exact same thing on my 300win mag. And I think either leave the barrel as is or paint it OD green to match your stock, like said above.

I think the suggestion to go OD green is a good one.
