I've seen that also but it was in the Stainless Raptor line, dealer had Ultra, Pro, Custom they were all a little different. Why IDK, different frame materials, different batches of KimPro finish?

Ultras have aluminum frames (unless HD). Most customs and pros are stainless steel. Thatís the difference in color.
