I am in great doubt about an information presented in this video by Legacy Collectibles about the Czech Police 1939 contract PP/PPK guns. In my collection I have a PPK with the same markings (N crown, Czech lion, number in ejection port, manufactured and proofed 1939) and for years I have been sure it is a commercial gun sold in Czechoslovakia or later Protectorate. Then I came across this video and started to verify the information presented there. I was unable to find any documents or mention about this "contract" here in Czech. The info on 1:27 is definitely incorrect, the number in the ejection port is not a "Police number" as suggested, but the proof protocol number. Also the rest of the story sounds a little bit confusing. If anyone has any detailed info about this contract, please share it with me. I am very interested in this story. Anyway, until I see relevant information or documents, I am very suspicious about this so called "rare variation".
This is the video:And the picture of the PPK from my collection is attached.
