I ALSO JUST PURCHASED A USED CZ 452 RIFLE, A REAL GEM.  I ALSO AM TRYING TO TELL THE AGE OF THE RIFLE, THERE IS A SERIAL NUMBER AND A 99 STAMPED ON IT, BUT I'M NOT SURE IF THAT IS THE CORRECT YEAR.  HOW CAN I TELL FOR SURE BY THE SERIAL NUMBER.  ALSO IT APPEARS TO HAVE TYPE OF CREST, OR SOMETHING STAMPED ON IT, BUT I CAN'T MAKE IT OUT, ANY IDEA'S.
THANK YOU.

I also have  a cz 27, my uncle brought it back from WWII.
It has 2 mags with numbers matching the gun and also the holster as well.
SN is 42228 and I think this is what they call a eagle K.
Any info on when it would have been made and if it's very rare or not?
Not smart enough to know how to add photo's or I would have..

Your CZ 27 was probably made in 1941 based upon the serial number, any German army acceptance stamps on the frame, slide or barrel?  I am assuming it is a polished blued gun. If it is stamped with a K on the trigger guard indicates proofed for smokeless propellents. I have one with a serial #889XX without. My estimate is both were made 1941-early '42 assuming it is German army acceptance stamped. That is a rare one with the K stamping may have been made before the Germans took over the factory if it does not have any German army acceptance stamps.

Quote from EAllen:
According to R.J.Berger's excellent book "Know Your Czechloslovakian Pistols", from the information in your post my reading estimates your example was made early in the German production period which took place almost two years after the Occupation of 1939.  During 1939-1940, production of the CZ27 was continued by the Germans and the pistols furnished to Nazi-friendly countries and sales to citizens, before all production was  claimed by the Nazis  That was 1941 when the rollmark on the top of the slide was changed to the German "Bohmische", and the side of the slide marked "Pistole Modell 27,  Kal. 7.65".

      Those markings, and the low serial number suggest 1941.   (Nazi police production started about SN 30,000).     Also, according to my reading of Berger, if there is not a Nazi acceptance mark- waffenamt- then that pistol was made for the police.  Nazi CZ27 production continued throughout the war both for Army and Police. 

      They are a nice pistol.  Berger reports that the pistols made for the German war effort totaled 450,500.   The design was continued after the war  and produced for general sale until 1949- total production of CZ27 at 620,000.

Actually Wikipedia, if you type in "CZ-27" for your search, has a very nice summary of Serial Numbers and examples of the the CZ-27 with tons of pictures, many with holsters, at the bottom of the article in "references!"  A shortcut to the site is below:

Unfortunately, the authors did not include dates, but the pictures with examples of the range within the serial numbers exemplified is well worth the look!   :)

Happy Shooting!

HELLO,  Greetings to all members. AS a new owner of CZ 27 I would like to know more about serial number - 178 808 is it posible to be dated based of serial number. The additional information I bougt it from a number of pistols with diferent numbers (late war  Fnh and  early -chech produced (chech texts) but most Bohemishe variant. they all came from Bulgarian police surplus. we knew about some delivary for Royal Bulgarian Police between 1941-43, maybe for the army. I was able to choose from 10 piece, the best 2 I had checked in shooting (both were good) but choose one with best preserved markings.
