    I think the variety of shades of khaki depend on the manufacturer, color recipes which is most likely not strictly adhered to (grenades were made in the huge number of different manufacturers). If a grenade dug out of the ground, it is possible colour options will be even more.
    color maybe OK, paint over pit? can not tell from foto, not clear. Switch same color, often end up different color over time? Do not know from foto.

    more color. Different periscope and case. Case same color as handle in first post. Periscope not original paint! But USSR.
    See RGD switch here, it has rust more and color change. Sometimes switch with paint, sometimes plain.

    Handle could be original paint, foto with light might better tell, here (photoshop) not certain, but looks better.

    On RGD which I have seen, In most cases, the switch was not painted, rusty (I mean grenades, dug out of the ground).

    In the photo at the beginning of the topic, the "handle" and the "body" grenade made by different plants (it can be seen on different manufacturer's trademark). I think the handle dug out of the ground, and free from rust for example, with the help of vinegar (by the way, is a great way to clean is very rusty objects). After cleaning usually appears similar, gray color.

    Each trenchscope has his original color, they ré all dated. From top to bottom:
    - dated 1945
    - Dated 1940
    -dated 1940
    I had a repainted trenchscopes reused by polish Army after ww2: No more date , No hammer and sickle and a symbol of reconditionning.
