Does anyone here know? I'm just curious as to what I should expect when my scope arrives someday? shocked)

Thank you.


I'm pretty sure that the white parts are still painted. Black parts look to be polished and anodized. I don't have a 160 and have never had the opportunity to see through one but I haven't heard any different from anyone.
