Rocks are parkerized, and it can range in color from black to grey to a greenish color. The greenish color is reminisent of the older parkerizing. the newer parkerizing uses manganese and gives a blackish grey color. the older used zinc and came out with a greyish green color.. hope this helps

Frames and slides are not parkerized together. Mine have an almost black slide and an almost olive drab frame. After several applications of Hoppes #9 they both look black unless looked at very closely.
