The guns were painted.
I have seen grey and tan colours. 
I expect the US guns were in some sort of olive drab military shade??

I will find some pictures.

Interestingly it's a question I asked Mike Blake (he didn't have a definitive answer).

The main candidates are grey and green (you could do a mixed shade).
I'd be wary of the tan colour. There are photos of Mexican guns in an Israeli museum; supplied to Israel and used in the 1948 war of independence. They may have been repainted.

There was a very useful site which seems to have disappeared; from the Wayback machine if link works:
