I do not believe your VH is an ejector gun.

You're right Bill, it's not an ejector gun, so it's a VH rather than a VHE.

The VHE 12 was added to the collection in the 90s - have shot it a couple times, but it's been awhile.

There was a time when all Damascus guns were thought to be unsafe to shoot, or to even think about shooting. So a lot of guns got sleeved in the 60s and 70s so that they could be “shootable”. A lot of perfectly shootable guns were hacked apart so that they could be perceived to be safer. Decades later after enough testing, study and common sense, it is found that is not the case. What was once thought to be saving a gun and making it usable, today is seen as having its value destroyed. How things can change.
