I have a CZ-27 that I was given that I haven't shot too much. I got some ammo. Now I'll have to get it out and bang away with it.
Thanks for the info.

My father brought one of these back from the ETO. It is a very well made gun but blowback and lots of recoil for a .32 and big and heavy for its size.

Late reply to an old but interesting thread:

I have a very similar pistol but mine was made by Mauser and it's the model 1914/34 7.65. The bottom of my magazine is also marked Mauser. I got mine the hard way, I inherited mine when my dad died.

If my memory isn't failing me, CZ produced something like 450,000 of the 27's under German occupation.

So they are out there but as what prices I have no idea.

After the war CZ still made the 27 for a few years. These postwar pistols are of much nicer fit and finish as one would expect from a quality maker like CZ. But it is a big heavy all steel pistol for the cartridge. The Germans needed every handgun that they could get and CZ 27's were issued to the Luftwaffe and Kriegsmarine (navy) in big numbers. Also German civilians who worked in the occupied countries were provided with them and other makes of 7.65mm pistolen for self protection from the hostile population.

The CZ 27 was far from the only 7.65mm pistol issued. Other foreign makes were the Hungarian Frommer Stop M37 and the French MAB Model D. All manner of new and older discontinued German produced pistols such as Walthers, Mausers, J.P. Sauers, and lesser known makes were pressed into service during the Nazi era. And that was just the 7.65mm guns.....

And so it goes.
