Zavod 44 & Pred...44 are the same plant (factory) - just different era. Then there are TRZ5; TR.137; Radonica 124; & Radonica 145. These are markings found on the side rails of m24/47 rifles. The Pred...44 is far & away the most commonly seen factory stateside, followed by Zavod44. The others are significantly less common.

There is/was a large factory, 1TRZ, that apparently did a lot of stock work & that marking is faily common (~10-25%?) on Yugo wood.

You will occassionally see VR.69 on a Yugo converted k98 siderail but it is not common. Pred...44 seems to have done most of the k98 conversions, at least the ones that were shipped to the US.
