Refinished magazines I've seen directly from the military, those with DCM pistols or in field service wrappers or etc, have all been parkerized. I've always thought the overblued two tones were probably thrown in the tank when the pistol was reblued so they would look "new" also.

I've seen some later blue pinned magazines that show different colors on the top and bottom that I thought might have been tempered first and then blued but that's just my theory.
