Thank you for that information. The only mark I can find on the rifle is the letter "K" stamped on the left side of the barrel near the receiver. I'm guessing a proof or inspector mark.

Thank you very much, sir. I saw that mark on a rifle stamped '95 and didn't realize they used the mark that late in production. But, I don't know much about the Brno's.
