    Hi Von is this the original colour? I ask because I want one for myself but I am not sure what an original coloured one should actually look like, I believe that most of what I have seen are repainted Yugo ones

    That is a great example.

    Hi Ben, they come in feldgrau and the later dunkelgelb (sometimes called Ordance tan by some collectors) as seen here.

    Cheers, Ade.

    So the black ones and the light green ones are post war repainted ones?
    Here are a few examples for sale on sites, are any of these original paint?

    Ade is correct dunkelgelb and fieldgrau are the 2 original colors the drums were painted by the Germans.
