Is it a M36 (blued) - or a M60 (stainless)?
If it is the stainless M60 made in the last several years they could be MIM parts. I've seen a lot of stainless S&Ws with MIM triggers and hammers that were flat black.

If it is a blued M36 and the hammer and trigger are truly blued - as opposed to just really dark colored case hardening - then there is a very good chance it is refinished. Unless some ding-a-ling thought the case coloring was a sign of wear and decided to use cold blue to "improve" the appearance.
