    Years back they were blued. Rem discontinued them. Last year or so they brought the blued version back only to be discontinued again shortly after their reintroduction.

    thanks everyone. posed this question before I had time to research. Yes high luster blue and parkerized. I am purchasing a used one from sog, guns aren't in yet so they don't know if they are blue or parked. I personaly prefer parked, just like the durability and they seem to soak up lubricants to keep the metal in good shape...plus they are just cool in parkerized! They have these at $219 or so used very good condition, supposed to be some prisons old guns. Not a bad price for a police mag..found this about the difference of the express vs police guns..

    Hrm, at that price I may have to pick one up as well.

    Did they give you an ETA?

    I ordered about two weeks ago. Talked to them friday, they said they were still being shipped. I am not the most patient person, but the price is still pretty good. I guess I am not out anything by waiting, and if they are in good shape it will be worth it.
