Nice pieces. The Remington was made in my home town, both grandparents worked there also during the war years.

After the Germans invaded Czechoslovakia, they took over the CZ factories and continued to produce weapons for Nazi use. After the war, most of these with nazi symbols were destroyed or the markings removed.

Here is my CZ27, with markings

German markings on the frame, along with W5A76 or WaA78 or something like that?

Barrel has the the wings nazi's normally used still intact. Looks like an eagle with talons gripping a swastika

7.65 or sometimes 32acp if small enough. These guns had very tight bores that would only accept .309 max, which means most USA 32acp's have problems
