I have been a CZ fan since the mid ’80s when I was stationed in Europe. We could buy a CZ 75 at the Rod and Gun club for a song, prior to them being in the US en masse.
Segue to now, and CZ is, straight-out-of-the-box, my favorite manufacturer. So as I endeavor to build the perfect “kit,” I became aware of the Scorpion series.
Which brings us to CZ Scorpion EVO3 S2 Pistol Micro (with brace), which CZ describes this way:
With a 4” barrel and HB Industries short handguard, this diminutive Scorpion is the result of our development of a smaller, suppressed Scorpion for an undercover drug interdiction unit. With a collapsed length just over 16 inches, this pint-sized pistol features a NoOsprey faux suppressor from the folks over at SilencerCo. Its telescoping SB Tactical arm brace extends for additional stabilization, making this one potent little package.
Equipped with our low-profile iron sights, its rear sight has four different aperture sizes for everything from close quarters to way out there. The sights ride on a top Picatinny rail perfect for mounting optics. With 1/2×28 threads hidden underneath the factory flash-hider, users can fit either 1/2×28 or 18×1 accessories to the muzzle.
Simple and reliable, the Scorpion not only has ambidextrous controls, its non-reciprocating charging handle is swappable and reach to the trigger is adjustable.
MSRP is $1211. Check it out . . .
