    Yea, that's what I thought. I noticed most SS M42s have rough texture surfaces and assumed that it was common.

    1. Cam. Black Green
    2. German Green (field grey)
    3. Black Green
    4. Grey Green
    5. RLM 70 Black Green
    6. Nato Black (slate grey)

    And Krylon Black Textured Finish for a nice rough surface.
