I'm going to have to look closely at mine, if they are like that it's not so I've noticed.

Well, shoot it with real black powder, and don't polish it any more.  But that will take a good while and the side plates might just keep getting darker, too.  Some people have gotten a little bit of patina head start by making a paste with BP fouling and a little water, and wiping that over the frame.  But that is only a small change in my experience.  There is also something called Brass Black (I think) but I'm not real sure what that would do.

 Just a heads up , I would not use the Birchwood Casey Brass Black for an antique look . I have used it on brass fittings and the results are a blackish blue finish .  ,,,,DT
