new 88 that's different

I bought a new 88 home defense 18.5 inch barrel about 6 months ago and it has a shiny bolt, blotchy blueing on barrel but still good and a not shinny but not dull stock and forend. Today I went and bought another as an extra at home. I went to pick it up and it has a beautiful dark blue barrel that is perfect, dark blued to black bolt and the stock and forend is a dull black color. Anyone else own more than one that is different? thanks
