It seemed to me that the parts had a lot of nickel in them that turned purple.


This is the second most prevalent cause of "purple" after incorrect bluing salts temp.
The Winchester Model 94 did not have a purple barrel and the M1917 rifles from Eddystone, Winchester and Remington were not purpled; that would be purble instead of blue or black.
