Which parts on a B series Mauser 22LR were not blued?

Which parts on a B series Mauser 22LR (i.e., ES340B, ES350B, MS350B, MM410B and MS420B) were not blued?
1) I am sure that the portion of the rear sight with the range marking was not blued.
2) But what about the muzzle?
3) What about the steal buttplate?
4) What about the bolt handle?
5) What about the body of the bolt?
6) And what about the extractor?

Does anyone have a definitive answer?

Thanks
Mike

Blued Vrs White Parts

I am looking at several B models now - and it appears that only the following were left white:
The Muzzle
The bolt body (handle was blued)
The extractor
The cocking piece (sticks out of the bolt sleeve at the rear)
The sight slide as you stated.
None of my rifles have a steel butt plate - If my memory is correct these were also in the white.

One of my original finish rifles does have a blued bolt body and extractor; however, I do no know if this one part was blued later or if it was from the factory. - Maybe some other owners can say if this is common or not.

I've seen quite a few with blued bolt bodies and extractors, but probably more were in the white. Since the bolt is one piece, and the handles were blued, the factory would have had to polish the bolt bodies bright after blueing, which I'm sure they did on some but not all. Mauser leaving the butt plate in the white would surprise me, but every one I've seen was white. That could have been from honest wear, however. The butt plate screws were definitely blued, and that would be an odd combination.

So, the answer is, it depends.
