Trigger group is correct, but it looks completely reparked except for the trigger pin.
I can vouch for the light grey park being original finish for a late war SA.
I received a 3.6 SA service grade a few years back that was all be a flat 9 op rod and 19 A8 bolt correct, the best rifle I've ever received via CMP mail order, right down to the excellent NFR stock set. Rolling Thunder at the time confirmed that the metal finish was original and it is the same light grey park as on the auction rifle.
