Maybe a Ruger? Maybe something else?

I was in a gun shop about a year. The guy had a pistol in the case he let me hold. I thought it was a Ruger but cannot find any Ruger that looks like this gun did. It was a steel frame, .40S&W, with a safety. It didn't look anything like the P85. The steel had a green tint to it (don't know any other way to describe that) that did not look aftermarket. He was selling it 3 mags and a holster. I don't remember the exact price but it $450 or less. It may have been a Smith & Wesson but could swear it was Ruger. If anyone has any info or anything about what it was will be extremely helpful, as it looked and felt like quality, and was very comfortable in the hand. Many thanks in advance.

Steel frame, green, & S&W doesn't sound right either.

Maybe a CZ?

They were made in both blue & green.

That CZ doesn't look anything like what that gun was. But that is a nice looking pistol though. Whatever it was I seen was not that dark of a green, but the frame was just a tad darker in color than the slide.

This is Ruger's latest 40 S&W. It is a comfortable gun to hold and shoot and I have been very pleased with mine, but it sure isn't all steel with a greenish tinge.
