Default Ruger Super Blackhawk - dressed up??

I just picked up a Ruger Super Blackhawk (new model) 7.5" barrel, factory wood grips, excellent condition. Here is what sets it apart - gold plated trigger and hammer with the circled machining in the plating, all lettering gold engraved, bronzed trigger group housing that wraps thru the grip to bottom of hammer, bronzed ejector rod and cylinder rod. It also has a ported barrel. I am no expert on Blawkhawks, but have collected a fair number of them,search adds all the time for them and this is the first one of these I have run across. It is at least 20+ years old. no anniversary markings on the barrel. Anyone know the occasion for the embellishments? Thank You.

Even a blind chicken gets a kernal of corn, once in a while.

Sounds great, but:

I wonder if it was someone's personal custom project? I've never seen one with those combination's before. Shoot the heck out of it.

Since it has been shot, I am planning on target shooting some with it ( never have shot one with the ported barrel). I also have a bow stand on a high traffic area for whitetails, looks like it is just begging for a Blackhawk packing hunter next rifle season. I guess it will just be a purty shooter for me.
