Does painting the inside of a four inch, 50mm scope hood have any negative effects, such as odd glares or colors, on the scope's performance?

Yes it does. It is a simple screw on 50mm hood that came painted mate black. I painted the outside to match the rifle but left the inside black because I didn't know if painting it would cause problems with the scope's proficiency.

I would think that it would depend on where the sun is relative to your hood, but I'm not sure. Why do you want to paint the inside of the hood?

Well as long as the black spot isin't a perfect circle or line you proably won't have to worry about it. Just my opinion tho. I don't think it would do any wierd stuff as long as you don't use a really light color that would reflect. I would take off the hood paint and try it lol. If it doesen't work just remove and try something else like tape.
