CZ-27 pawn shop find

I travel a lot for work and always try to hit a few pawnshops wherever I am. I stopped in a shop in El Paso and found this. I’ve never studied these and don’t know much about them. Looks like an early one based on finish and top slide legend I think.

NathanLM, that CZ is serialized close to mine. I just got mine off of gunbrokers. I believe mine and yours were built early 1942, I think. That's a nice CZ, looks like the original grips are on it also.

Thanks for the info. I was wondering what year it was produced. Feels like a very solid little pistol, I might have to shoot it.

that was a great stumble onto find ! If you want just one that's the one to own.. These fell off fast in finish and quality. That's a real nice example:thumbsup:
