First off, thanks to everyone who's answered my questions the past week or so regarding this SMLE I'm working on...your experience and knowledge are greatly appreciated...I'm learning alot.

My question...I've started removing the cosmo from the rifle and noticed the wear on the magazine and in the places where the bluing is wearing off it's showing a brass or goldish type color (see pics). Is that normal and just a stage of the bluing wearing away to a typical silver steel color? anything to worry about?

...or is that just the begning of rust? I'm used to seeing the bluing giving way to the silver steel color but this brassy/goldish color has me confused.
