I have a rifle marked VZ4 made in Czechoslovakia.  Anyone have any information about this gun.

Interesting gun, but it is a 4.4 mm military trainer and my gun is a .177 cal break barrel.

Sold mine two years ago.  Not many imported as far as I can tell.  Mine was accurate, shot 7gr pellets in the low 600s and did not have scope rails.  The sights were hard to see so I let it go.  If it had a way to mount a scope or peep sight, I might have kept it.

Whoops, an error.  My gun is actually marked ZV4, not VZ4.  It was purchased many years ago from an importer who brought in a bunch of "junkers" from Europe.  They were sold in lots of five as they came from the container.  My lot included a Rossi, two IZH IJ 38, one IZH IJ 22, with plastic Soviet Union domestic stock and the ZV4.  The IZH 38s were in decent shape so I refinished the better ones' stock and resealed both.  A gas spring from a guy in Izhevsk was installed in the better gun.  Even though far harder to cock than the original spring, it made almost no difference in power.  I should have expected this considering the very short piston stroke.
