The reason slides and frames don't match in color is that the hardness of each is different. Spec for slides is 38-42 and frames are 28-32. People often make frames even softer. There's a reason for this and if they made the frame and slide the same hardness it would be better if the frame were as hard as the slide...although that has a downside too. Not a big one on a gun like this though. A person likely won't put tens of thousands of rounds through one of these.
