It looks dry. A coating of oil will likely even it out for you. Blued and Phosphated steel will lighten up as it dries out.

I agree that oil will help the looks-but there is no steel in that slide!

Is the front sight loose. In your pics, the sight does not look like it is "flush" with the slide.

Doesn't look too bad! Looks like a nice little pistol, show us the whole thing!
