    From the scores that I have handled, I would say most are blued steel, or black painted. I have seen the occasional light olive green example as well, but most all of those have appeared to be repaints while in postwar military stocks.

    Thanks for the information. I have had one for about 30 years, has traces of black paint and was not sure if that was the original color or not. It is dated 1940r.
