    Question 1911 gone purple on me...

    I need some help here guys. I bought this Kimber second hand from a good buddy of mine. When I purchased it I did notice a certain purple "hue" to it. Being a novice to the "blueing" of any firearm, can I and should I have this re-surfaced somehow. It is an aluminum frame. Again I have absolutely no knowledge on the resurfacing of anything but don't care much for the purple side this piece has turned. What would cause this and how can I prevent it from happening again?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    Here's some pics,
