on layaway at local shop..CESKA ZBROJOVKA AS v PRAZE 193986 (Czech proof) on top of slide Serial # 193986 on frame..side plate is m/matched #112062. The other proof is E7(lion) 38 CET.It has a high polish blue finish..with some wear on the slide, black wrap around grips with the CZ logo. I have not had an opportunity to take it apart but the bore looks very good..the mag is an un-marked after market version..kind of cheesy and hard to get in and out. I almost passed because of the miss matched side plate but the condition swayed me..I did cough up $200..probably a bit high but I got one for $90 awhile back so it balances out...I think.

Will pick up this Cz-24 in a couple of days. Did a search and found one very similar for sale. The E7 (lion) 38 CET^ indicates Czech military police issue according to the info derived from search. My pistol is 1748 digits earlier. I looked closer at the grips and they are the dark brown ones..just like the pistol for sale on the collectable gun site. Now the question..should I keep the mis-matched # side plate or look for an un-numbered replacement? I like it more since the Czech Military police issued Cz-24's seem to be "scarcer"...if you believe the hype. Cone Ten

CET means CETNICTVO and it is not Military Police! Cetnictvo is Gendamery.

They are three basic sideplate types:
Prewar and early wartime - milled with tightenig screw
Wartime - metal sheet
Postwar - milled without screw.

I my opinion your chance to founnd the right plate with matching number is about zero. Any other plate is the same mismatch like the present plate.

Jan, Thank you for the clarification on CET stamping. I mentioned the side plate because the one pictured for sale had an un-numbered machined side plate. The one I have is numbered..but a mis-match. That is part of the history of the pistol and will remain as is. The quality of these Cz-24's is impressive..fit and finish. Cone Ten
