Actually that's standard 2-tone, black slide, silver frame. In the 70s and 80s custom 1911s would have that since the hard chrome frame would be more rust resistant and a black slide to reduce glare when aiming.

When that faded out, SIG introduced the silver slide, black frame. Which is more common nowadays so people consider it standard 2-tone.

My SIG was refinished with black slide, silver frame I consider it standard 2-tone. But reverse 2-tone by SIG standards.
A man's got to know his limitations.
