With regard to Brian's comment, Engraving has a great effect on the appearance of case hardening colors. When the gun is new, the light is reflected erratically and as the gun gets used, all the 'high spot's' colors on the edges adjacent to the graver's cut, wear more quickly, leaving only the colors in the depth of the graver's cut.
