    It's a work in progress by the way, but undoubtedly helpful when researching Russsian factories.
    I use russian language file.

    Yes, it is looks strange. Why this type of marking I do not know. It is inert and probably was not serous rules of marking like for live grenades.
    In blueprints only standard marking, nothing about another type.

    And what do you think about this two? Light green colour with black hand made markings. The word "inert" looks to be different between the two grenades?! Caucasias?1-rgd-5-01 ИНЕРТНЫЙ 583 Saransk factory.jpg

    Both variants on Russian, but word 'Инетная' in two different cases. I think it is just variations.

    You still see the original base color underneath it. They just used different stencils for marking. Keep in mind, the reworking into inert grenades was not done at a huge factory, but more like at a large depot workshop.

    Only Russian letters and words were permissible on ordnance. This was stipulated in several state standards. Even if manufacture was done in a Soviet republic with a recognized "folkloristic" language other than Russian.
    Any Live or recovered ordnance shown in my posts has been dealt with accordingly by trained EOD personnel

    Both words on common russian language, without any "folkloristic".

    I have never said anything to the contrary

    инертная / инертный is the same word - just different grammatical gender

    Are there ways to tell the difference between a grenade that was manufactured inert and one that was inerted for training?

    every inerted 'live' RGD-5 I've seen has had holes drilled through body (though unsure if these were inerted in Russian/by other user nation's service or by foreign EOD) and I've been told they can't be inerted without doing so, though I'm not sure why (unless filler is completely sealed inside sheet metal body - and assuming det will puncture this where it makes contact in fuze well - and can't be removed otherwise)??
    always looking for inert baton rounds and accessories - please message me if you have any for sale/trade.
