You may have already seen this, but here it is again anyway as I found it by accident looking for something else.

That guy does some pretty interesting videos.  I assume he was talking about the recent offering of these rifles, can’t remember who it was tho, Navy Arms?

Maybe, but I thought it was from a few years back when this was written?

thanks Shamu, I was aware of the Navy Arms find: but had not seen Ian's video.
The PP is probably for "Prefet de Police".
I'm sure that more rifles survived in Resistance hand's than were handed in. 
They weren't ready to get caught out a second time! Having had the Nazi's collect all privately owned weapons as soon as they took over.

My Resistance rifle is also a 1944 Maltby, but came with original bayonnet (unsued), also 10 full clips in the original bandolier and a few loose full clips.
The barrel was a bit frosty, but rifling is excellent and the mag showed virtually no wear at all. I expect most of those Navy Arm's rifles would be similar.
