Buying it I thought the receiver had been cold blued or something, but now I have it home I seems strange the only the left side of the receiver looks like it has been messed with. What do you think? Is this a very old attempt to reblue the  receiver?

Looks like natural aging to me.

I agree that the receiver is “naturally aged” by use.  The ring on the left side does tend to protect that side from the wear associated with handling and loading abuse that the right side encounters.

Oh that’s great thanks for that, I’ve just never seen a receiver have a small uneven patch of bluing like this.

I can’t recall seeing an Aussie 1892 that’s led a easy life. Looks honest to me.

That wear pattern is exactly what I would expect to see from right handed person or persons toting this gun.

I’m just curious about what the “stinger” designation means.

I see that it is marked on the barrel.
