Not gonna lie, I popped into the CZ-USA and Dan Wesson booth just to pick up a DW “Repeal The NFA” hat, as I hadn’t heard of any new stuff from these guys for the NRA show. Turns out, there were some goodies there after all . . .
A new version of the Scorpion pistol will come with the carbine’s extended handguard and a flash can style muzzle device. It’s ready to be swapped out for an actual suppressor. A pistol stabilizing brace, as seen in the lead photo, can be attached via a couple of different rear mount options. Or, file a Form 1 to SBR the bad boy and it’ll be basically identical to my Scorpion setup.
Jumping over to the Dan Wesson side, we’ve got the A2. It’s sort of a modernized M1911 A1. Like, what would it have looked like if the .gov requested another iteration a few years later? Simple and old-school still, but updated with an extended beavertail, good sights, lowered and flared ejection port, extended thumb safety, and some slight undercutting of the trigger guard. The matte blue finish and almost completely unadorned slide keep it classy.
Back to CZ for the CZ 527 American Synthetic Suppressor-Ready, which is a handy, durable little micro-Mauser bolt gun chambered in 300 BLK or 7.62×39.
The 527 Carbine Rustic has an aged beechwood stock and is available in 7.62×39. Both of the 527s above have single set triggers — push forwards on the trigger to click it into “set” mode, netting an extremely light and crisp break.
The 455 Scout is a .22 LR bolt gun designed for youth shooting with its short, 12″ length of pull. Adjustable leaf rear and blade front sights are easy to use, and the receiver is dovetailed for scope rings. What’s more, the muzzle is threaded 1/2-28 for suppressed shooting. Since it’s a standard 455 receiver and barrel, the stock can be swapped out for a full-size one or even an aftermarket chassis system as your yoots grow.
