Mauser with purple tint?

Hi guys, this is my first post on the forms. Thanks for accepting me, on with the question. I purchased this RC Mauser K98 in Nov. of last year and I have been wondering. Why is it that certain parts of the Mauser have a purplish tint to them.

Type of metal causing it? Poor job? I don't know what the correct answer is, maybe you guys might know.

A little background on the gun though, it was previously owned by somebody who tried getting the shellac off of it and did a terrible job. So I took the liberty of doing it myself. (There is still some on the bolt and on the end of the barrel but I just ordered something to remove it without causing damage to the metal/bluing.

Thanks for any suggestions or logical reasons why it is like this.
