Case coloring back in the old days was a side effect of the primitive heat treatment technique.
Nowadays case coloring is usually done by bluing in a way that gives it the "blotchy mess" look. I'm not a fan of case coloring myself.
The "dragon scale" grip panels are silly but it's a Talo thing. Talo always got some ugly ass grips to go with their guns for some ungodly reasons.
Can you dig it?
