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 7¾” barrel. Open sights ride on an 11”
Picatinny rail perfect for mounting optics. Starting in 2016, Scorpion
Pistols feature 1/2×28 threads hidden underneath the factory
flash-hider, meaning users can fit either 1/2×28 or 18×1 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.
With a wealth of accessories and attachments available for the
Scorpion platform, customization can easily be done with a number of
braces, grips, forends, magazines, safeties, mag releases, charging
handles and triggers designed specifically for the EVO 3 platform.
The most impressive stat on the Scorpion Pistol is the price tag!
Current production Scorpion pistols lack the 3/4? sling slot on the left side of the action that is present on earlier variants.
The CZ Scorpion EVO 3 S1 Pistol is legally classified by the ATF as a pistol,
and is intended by CZ-USA to be used as a pistol. Under current federal
law and ATF policy attaching a stock to this pistol – or attaching a
device which is then used as a stock or intended to be used as a stock –
constitutes the making of a short-barreled rifle which requires
registration with ATF and the payment of the applicable tax. Users of
the CZ Scorpion EVO 3 S1 Pistol bear the sole responsibility for
ensuring their use of the firearm complies with all local, state, and
federal firearms laws.
