CZ vz27 early version
« on: July 13, 2018, 07:03:41 AM »
I recently acquired a vz27 with what I think are very low serial numbers 57786; it also has a stamping of: J*27 on. - January 1927? The same serial number is on the barrel.  What is interesting is that the lugs on the barrel are more like a Mauser 1910 than the later three grove kind. It also has a wooden one pice grip that is totally intact. Besides needing a main spring the pistol is tottaly functional.

What I would like to know is, what year was this made in any any other information anyone can provide. I have pictures but do not know how to upload them on this site.

The 'J lion 27' is the acceptance mark of Czech military, J for office, 27 for year of acceptance.

There's some information here that may also be useful.

On the German CZ site none of the images match. It was the wooden grip and is most defenetly a early version.
The only other marking on it is a ? 4J 47 ? on the front bottom of the grip.
