Rare CZ 24?
« on: July 07, 2021, 07:24:21 PM »
Hello, new to the forum.  I have several unit marked CZ 24's which this forum was great in providing me the a list in identifying the various units.  My most recent CZ 24 purchase is a bit of a rare bird, I think.  Once I figure out how to post pics I will but for starters it is a 4 digit serial number, making it an earlier production.  It also has the traditional lion marking for the 1924-1939 production era.  Now the juicy part.....on the right side of the frame above the grip it is marked CS Straz Kosice with a 3 digit property number underneath it.  The stamping is definitely consistence with the rest of the gun and having period worn finish.  Thoughts???

 A long shot.. believe they were pistols that were assigned to the honor guard in the city of Kosice.

Rock Island Auction sold one of these a few years ago marked the same

Thank you for the information!  Yes, very similar and about 150 numbers off the serial number.  I appreciate the help.
