Cell phone pic, in the range. John, you are correct, I think the box says Electroless Nickel maybe Satin, but it is not Stainless. Mine is all the same not polished any area. Good eye my friend.

Not good lighting for pics from my cell phone. It is BONE stock except for grips.
Tom, actually the slide stop and safety and front sight are black the way they came from the factory back in the day. It also came with Black Pachmayer rubber grips with a Gold Colt Enblem, which I still have. I put the Blue/Black smooth grips on it that I found on Ebay.
