Ralph,

The trainer is known as the VH7, Vlozna Hlaven 7. This is the first model, the second and more often encountered trainer is the VH7 A. It has a yellow warhead and the action is a twist type compared to a more of a break down action on the VH7.

The Czech crossed swords property mark/acceptance stamp. Above that "Kt-65" which I believe are the manufacturers code and year made.

"253" several places which became the firearm's serial number when imported into the US. I noted a "T" inside of a circle several places on the shaft and action. Other three digit numbers include 257,151, and 230. A few pieces have different three digit codes on the same part...so not certain if it has been parted together or had replaced parts.

On the cast aluminum warhead there is "C 0323".
