looking at a cz24 a local dealer has, it has uncheckered walnut grips. is that correct. all matching # s, finish ok. comes with a nice german 42 P27 marked holster. may go take a second look at it tomorow
took another look today, ser # 56181, front of grip strap, 2D 1218. top of slide has writing and ser #. frame and side plate match slide. several markings on gun cz27, J (a lion) 27. unmarked mag. holster is black, wafen Waa75 1942 P.Mod.27. holster in prety good condition, gun has some finish wear, maybe 75% left
J lion 27 is Czech Army acceptance. 27 = 1927. 2D 1218 means: 2nd Light Artillery Regiment, weapon Nr. 1218. 2nd Artillery was located in Plzen (Pilsen, the town I was born and still live there), commanding officer Hugo RAKUSAN. Plzen was liberated May 6th 1945 by U.S. Army (2nd Infantry "Indianhead", 16th Armored ). Nice!

No one Czech soldier fight on side the Germans. Our country was occupied (Protektorat Böhmen und Mähren), Army disarmed and dissolved. Under German rule was founded "Government Army" (Vladni vojsko)later (1944) deployed in Italy. Most of "Government soldiers" overrun to Italy partisans.
