Years ago, I saw a 1911-A1 with a two tone finish on the slide flat sides to mimic holster wear. It had a bright finish on the flat sides of the slide from the muzzle end toward the ejection port, with a gradual transition with the rest of the slide remaining blued. Has anyone else seen this type of finish and know how it might be done?

Blue the whole gun, and then remove what you want with fine sandpaper. Of course, the more blue you remove from an area the less rust-resistant it will be.
