Being neither a chemist nor a metallurgist, I cannot say for certain, but am guessing that the guns with remaing color were NOT "fired to any extent using black-powder ammunition". There were a lot more TDs made than were ever issued to troops - a particular case is the huge batch of closet queens in the mid 400K range, bearing [SWP/1889] cartouches. I can also say that, at least in my experience, WD40 does NOT remove color-case - I'd been using it (sparingly) as a general wipe for so many years before hearing that it was "bad" that it was too late to stop.
