Have forgotten......... which parts of an 1885 High Wall action are blued? Do recall that the receiver, tang, block, lever & trigger are case-colored, but don't recall what parts are blued.

On a leaf spring gun the hammer is CCH, as well as the extractor. Triggers are blued if I remember correctly. 

The leaf spring and forend bosses are also CCH, as well as the buttplate.  Also, most folks don't know this but the screws are CCH as well, Winchester used a different bone/wood ratio for the screws, the colors are a bit thinner and the colors fade quickly.  That's why on original guns they are silver/grey.
