CZ 27, sn 382897
« on: April 07, 2018, 08:53:20 PM »
Hello, all.

A couple of years ago I purchased a CZ 27 in South Carolina.

The pistol is marked “fnh Pistole Modell 27 Kal, 7,65” on the left side of the slide.
On the right of the frame, just below the slide and toward the muzzle, is the serial number 382897. The sn is also on top of the slide, just forward of the rear sight, with a very small eagle stamp beside it.
Another eagle is stamped on the barrel assembly and is visible inside the ejection port.

Any information on this pistol would be welcome!

I agree with the time frame.
Can you share precisely what words are before the serial number on the top of the slide, if any--that will narrow it down.  My CZ27 doesn't have any words.

Also with the "eagle" stamps--are there any letters, numbers?  It the eagle a stick-figure or a closed-outline figure?  Is there a swastika? My CZ27 doesn't have any markings.

Found this as well in RJ Berger's  book 

After the German occupation of Czechoslovakia in mid-March 1939 the pistol was folded into the German armed and police forces as the P27. Construction of the pistol continued in Czechoslovakia until the 1950s. . Between 620,000 and 650,000 were manufactured in total, 452,500 of those under German occupation
CZ 27 1939, 40 & early 41 serial # 15,001-20,500 is considered start of all production going to the German military
1941 – 42,000 produced
1942 – 100,000 produced
1943 – 200,000 produced
1944—77,000 produced
1945 – 23,000 produced, This is up to the point when the allies liberated the factory
