Any idea why this would all be purple or if the color affects the function?

It came off a purple people eater.

Blueing salts were probably to high a temperature.

If you polished and reblued it , you should be OK . Shouldn't affect function.

.

Here is a better photo. The trigger group is not a purplish color when seen in person. I could not tell you why it had a purple haze in the previous photos. Moved to a wooden surface, the previous photos were on a table cloth in the dining room near ambient light.
