I was at a gunshow this weekend and I saw a 1913 production Colt 1911 that had avery shiney almost purple finish. Does anyone know what was wrong with this pistol? It was priced at $650. A good deal? There were only minor scratches on the slide, no pitting or rust.

It's a reblue.. The last "nice" 1913 vintage 1911 I saw sold for well over 1,000 U.S. It's finish was a matted cobalt blue.. I've seen the purpleish color come out of more than a few home bluing tanks..
