Finally available for public consumption is the much anticipated Scorpion sub-gun. Imported as a pistol, it is a blowback-operated semi-auto in 9mm with a short 7 barrel. Equipped with our newly designed low-profile sights, its rear sight has four different aperture sizes for everything from close quarters to way out there. The sights ride on an 11 Picatinny rail perfect for mounting optics. 2016 model year SKUs (91351/01351 and 91352/01352) feature 1/228 threads hidden underneath the factory flash-hider, meaning users can fit either 1/228 or 181 accessories to the muzzle. Also added is a QD sling swivel pocket integrated into the rear sling attachment point. Simple and reliable, the Scorpion not only has ambidextrous controls, its non-reciprocating charging handle is swappable and reach to the trigger is adjustable. Our favorite accessory for the Scorpion pistol is our new arm brace adapter, which quickly and easily adds an AR-style pistol buffer tube to the rear of the action, enabling the use of an arm brace for added stability.

CZ Scorpion Capacity

Chambered in 9x19mm, the CZ Scorpion Evo 3 S1 ships with two 20-round magazines.  CZ also makes 10 and 30 round magazines for the Scorpion, while aftermarket manufacturers offer 35 and 40 round box magazines and 50 round drum magazines.
The CZ Scorpion is available in both a rifle and pistol configuration. Weighing as little as 6 pounds as a pistol with a length of 26.5 inches, the Scorpion is incredibly easy to carry in all environments and excels in close-quarter situations.  As a rifle, it weighs as little as 6.3 pounds in some variants making it easy to carry across open terrain.  Due to its geometry, some users may find some difficulty moving through dense vegetation, however its 36 inch length makes it great for close-quarter environments.  The stock can be folded to shorten the gun even more, allowing for easier movement.

CZ Scorpion Ergonomics

Ergonomics
All controls on the CZ Scorpion work for both left and right handed shooters.  The safety and magazine release are ambidextrous, the charging handle can be swapped easily from the left to the right side, the bolt release is easy to engage by both left and right handed shooters, and the trigger has a smooth 8 pound pull with an audible reset.  The pistol grip is rather uncomfortable due to its basic geometry, and while the iron sights give a very clean sight picture in its rifle configuration, they’re basically useless on the pistol versions.  The front handguard is surprisingly comfortable for most users, and the charging handle can be pulled back and rotated up to lock the bolt back, giving the user the option to do an HK-slap to close the bolt.

CZ Scorpion Fit & Finish

The CZ Scorpion is a mean-looking gun to say the least.  With its sharp angles, curved magazine, and 4 picatinny rails, this gun screams “tactical”.   The build quality of the Scorpion is pretty top-notch, though the polymer buffer behind the recoil spring can break easily during disassembly.  The ability to reload this gun like an MP5 is a nice touch, giving the user the option to slap the charging handle for a fraction of the cost of an MP5.  The straight-blowback action of the gun gives a sharp recoil impulse with a similar amount of kick as a typical AR15.
