Ok I think I may leave the metal.

I am thinking this is the rifle.

Savage action
Douglass 260 barrel from Sharp Shooters Supply.
Rifle Basix trigger
Stockade Woodchuck stock in green with black webbing.
Warne 1-Piece Tactical Picatinny base
Leupold 30mm Mark 4 Picatinny
Leupold vx-3L 4.5-15x56mm
or
IOR Valdada 4-14x50mm with the Ill 4a dot

All told we are looking at just under $2500 for all this. Plus some go no go gauges for installing the barrel. and maybe on of them fancy smancy scope ring grinder thingies.

I think the stainless metal will look great with the stock colour that is in the picture. Also, the contrast between the matte black scope, silver action and barrel and dark painted stock will make for an excellent looking rifle.
