CZ 27 value/date? Updated with better pictures
I'm brand new to this forum so here is my first post.
I picked up this CZ27 about 4 years ago for $300. It is Nazi marked with WaA78 and has what looks like an eagle with a swastika underneath on top of the chamber. I've actually been using this gun as my carry piece for the past few days. I kind of like carrying it
I would like approximate age and value of the piece. Thanks!

There's really nobody here on a CZ board that can tell me anything about this gun?? I have to say I'm a little dissappointed with this forum so far.

That's a really nice looking pistol you have. What you have is a somewhat rare low serial number example in excellent condition. You got it for a good price too. I don't think I would use it for CCW, but that's just me.
I would guess current value is about $500 to 550.

Also, you could join the Curio and Relic firearm list here.
Anyway, enjoy your pistol. You'll find that CZ's tend to multiply on you.

According to "Know Your Czechoslovakian Pistols" by R. J. Berger, during German occupation in early '41 all production was diverted to the war effort starting around serial #20500. Contracts for the police began in late 1941, by the end of that year less than 42,000 were produced.
You have a Waffenamt mark, meaning not a police unit, as that was considered a commercial contract and the marking, well, see pic.
Not a bad price.
Mine is a fnh Pistole etc, placing it produced in mid 1943 at the earliest. Yet it also has the CZ logo on the grip, "which was soon removed."

Too nice a pistol to be using it as a CCW piece. Heck, get a PA63 in 9x18 for your CCW and save the P.27(t) for its collector value......you got a good deal on that one.

Thanks for the replies all. I've only been carrying it lately because my friend is borrowing my Charter Bulldog that I usually carry. Perhaps I will put it back in the safe.

If you use this pistol as a ccw the original bluing will quickly wear off.
