Somebody ordered a batch of these pistols with FNs older legal name marked on the slide, this was done solely to mislead buyers / collectors into believing that they were getting a genuine FN made gun. Belgian law-enforcement agencies did not use the PP or PPK.
FN never produced the PP and these were not made for the Belgian police as often claimed in U. FN has always been a Belgian company, from its inception up to the World Wars.
In such, the majority of shares were in hands of a German company.
The Baby Browning was introduced by FN in 1931, the pistol is smaller than the Vest Pocket model.
The Baby Browning is a total different design from the earlier Vest Pocket pistol, parts are not interchangeable.
This nomenclature should never be used today in order to identify rifles as customers did either select a 24 or a 30 model.
There is no such model as a 24/30 as there is no hybrid between the two.
Majority ownership however does not mean that a company changes national identity.
