Default Finish on Soviet ribbed steel mags?

Iím wondering what was the typical finish on Soviet ribbed steel 7.62 magazinesó blued or painted? What is typical on a side-stamp Ischevsk mag? Iím looking for a blued Soviet magazine and am curious what is available? Thanks!

All are available for a price. Most Russians mags will be blued.

Earlier mags were blued (like most slab sides). More recent mags are painted.
