Wow, I think I would have stood there for an hour looking at that one example.
Saw the phrase "fire bluing". Googled it for more info. Top hit? This blog post. GRRRRrrrr.
Is that a crack in the slide metal, beginning near the takedown latch and spreading rearward? What kinda gun nut buys a gun that can't be fired safely? Probably can't get Pacs or Hogues for it, either...
DJ9: looks to me like the divide between slide and frame. Not unusual to see one that fine in contemporary European guns (check out a matching number, unmolested Luger).TJIC: you can do it with a torch but it requires a lot of practice to get consistent.
