i just bought this used from a guy. works fine. but the slide has a purpleish/plum tint to it. is this normal? it has the rail and is the all black version.
except its not black!!:eek:

The slide is blued steel, so sometimes it can take on that type of appearance. You only get a more definite all out black appearance from coatings such as polymer/paint, tennifer/melonite, etc.
Basically, its fine. Shoot and enjoy.

Sometimes very hardened steel will not "take" bluing well and give it that appearance.
