I went to the gunshop and noticed that the barrel was blued? Is SA blueing the stainless barrel or have they switched over to the standard steel?

My new stainless came with a blued barrel marked "SA .45 Auto" on the hood. On the bottom of the dust cover it says F1 Brazil. Also the guide rod is two piece. Am I getting an old loaded?

Mine has a stainless barrel. The outside is dull grey, looks
like it was bead blasted. The inside is highly polished.
They must have got it smooth, I shot 50 hard cast lead
bullets and found no lead when I cleaned it.
