    Default Dual Tone CZ Vz.27

    Most recent acquisition; pardon the poor pictures, I was in a bit of a rush. Anyone have any info on these two-tone Vz.27s? Slide is polish-blued, but the lower is just phosphate finished; matching slide and lower #.

    No clue as to the two-tone finish, but what a super nice handgun.
    The CZ has long been a favourite of mine for some reason.
    A good quality compact handgun with good ergos.
    A nice shooter and especially so in the long barrel version with a suppressor

    Id guess that if it has German markings on it that it was rapidly assembled by them when they took over production at the CZ factory for their war effort

    Thanks Worth mentioning that the finish has not been tampered with; I've found a few more of these on Google, but no definite answer as to why. Only tampering on it is some post war proof marks, and an unfortunate meeting with a fake SS stamp, thankfully only in one spot, near the postwar marks anyway, so it sort of blends in with them.

    And yes, it does have German proof marks.

    I wasn't aware there's a long barrel version, going to look that up!

    lew07 makes a valid point.

    But it might also be from the latter days of German occupation. A relatively high polished standard of some parts having been produced and then suddenly the end looming and a dire need for all weapons, so some parts had to make do with the duller phosphate finish. Just a thought.

    Loads of CZ suppressor info & pics here.

    One site also mentions that early guns were blue and then later parkerized, which would tie in with a need for guns and for cutting costs. So maybe a factory match of one part from an early batch mated with a part from a batch made later.

    Early blued examples and then later parkerized guns when times got hard would follow the norm from many German WWII handguns. As for the mix and match - see above.

    Actually, that's the odd bit, they're not all from the same 'batch', so maybe they are just random parts that were in a bin that got put together that way. I've seen the serial numbers vary quite a bit.

    EDIT: They went from blued prewar, blued wartime, to phosphate finish wartime twards 44' I think. At some point they had parts for both and mixed and matched a few I suppose.

    Yes, basically what I tried to imply in my (clumsily worded) post above (and now below)

    Did you have a chance to peruse the CZ suppressor info?

    D'oh, makes sense. I have, and quite frankly I felt my wallet cringe and my organs beg to not be sold in exchange for one of those, truly interesting weapons. I've found a handy little list of approximate production numbers for dating the CZ-27:
    Up to 1938 - serial # 0- 15,000 These are preGerman occupation
    1939,40 & early 41 - serial # 15,001-20,500 Serial 20,500 is consider the start of all production
    going to the German military.
    1941 - 42,000 CZ27's 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.

    Which if my math isn't too bad, would place it somewhere in summer/autumn of 1943, assuming an even output of weapons throughout each year.

    So now I've got the police papers on this beauty and a Enfield No 2 being worked on, and if the dealer is open I can pick up my PPK tomorrow. Happy days!

    Police papers - as in permit for a shooter (or is it a deac)?

    The CZ is indeed an interesting weapon (long barrel or not) and further more a sleek elegant handgun IMO.

    Id say, that is a more than worthy companion to the PPK. Congrats on both ...and the rifle as well for that matter. We look forward to a pic, when you have gotten your mitts on all three.
