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 . . .

    The background “music?” is overwhelming. Turn it down.

    that is a hell of a riser though

      He has a BIG noggin.
      He needs a big riser.

      I know. I own both.

  3. avatar Jeff O. says:

    These actually exist in the wild?!

    I have never been able to find one in stock anywhere and the slightly bigger version is also gone from everywhere.

    1. avatar Lance Williams says:

      Just hit HB industries if you already own a scorpion evo 3 s1 and you can convert it to this Micro-K version minus the brace and the unneeded faux suppressor. Can’t remember the exact price…but it’s way cheaper and you own 2 configurations.

      I got mine at Scottsdale gun club here in AZ about two months ago. They had a bunch in and didn’t even know what they were. The website is showing they still have one in stock. Good luck!

    It’s like a lot of new, innovative guns. Awesome review, great specs, no inventory.
    Keltec invented these types of guns.

  5. avatar Jack says:

    Could they have found someone to make the gun look a little smaller?

  6. avatar Vic Nighthorse says:

    Does that gun make his arms look short?;-)

  7. avatar James W Crawford says:

    It’s pistol brace!
    Yeah, that’s the ticket.
    It’s pustol brace.

    Certainly looks like a stock to me and obviously functions as a stock as the brace is against his shoulder rather than his arm, making this a short barrelled rifle.

    I do not have an issue with people owning short barrel rifles. However; by engaging in legal gymnastics to push the boundaries of BATF regulated weapons, we provide the gun grabbers with a propaganda bonanza.

    1. avatar pwrserge says:

      By pushing the boundaries of the BATFE we push back against unconstitutional laws. US v Miller specifically grants that weapons “useful for militia purposes” are protected by the 2nd amendment. The fact that the NFA is still on the books is a travesty.

    2. avatar strych9 says:

      The antis would attack a 27 foot long 10 round capacity .22 rifle as being a “dangerous assault weapon” and being ultra concealable just because it has a detachable mag. They’ll attack anything that’s a gun because they hate guns. So long as you’re not playing right into their memes you just have to live with the fact that they’ll attack. When we’re careful we can show them to be the assholes that they are by exposing their lies, that they don’t want “common sense laws about safety” but rather really do just want to ban all or nearly all guns.

      Also, serge is right. The guy in the video is following the law as proclaimed by the powers that be. According to the ATF shouldering a brace is no longer considered “redesigning” the firearm and is legal. The man is operating within the confines of the law and at the same time showing how utterly stupid the law is because, yeah, that thing is effectively a shitty stock kind of like those old TapCo kits for an SKS.

      That’s momentum we can build off of to attack the NFA via legislative efforts as well as legal challenges. You can make the arguments to Congress Critters over time as well as start to build a legal argument that the NFA is unconstitutionally vague as well as arbitrary and capricious due to it’s arcane and overly technical definitions of what is legal and what is not when two items are basically the same. Add to those arguments prior SCOTUS findings and you’re starting to have the semblance of a plan of attack. Historically speaking the “How the hell can anyone tell the difference without querying the government and then hiring a lawyer to explain the response?” argument does work in federal court sometimes.

      At worst this is just another arrow in the quiver.

      lmao this comment is retarded

  8. avatar Mike. says:

    Can we have a .22 version?
    A .22 “pistol” with brace would be a fun range gun

    1. avatar Just Sayin says:

      How’s ‘bout .45 & 10mm versions?
      Those would be the most popular.

      RUGER… where’s our .45 & 10mm PCCs ??

    2. avatar Jedi Wombat says:

      Ruger 10/22 charger pistol can easily take a pistol brace. You’re welcome!

    I converted my EVO 3 S1 to this Micro K version….I liked it but couldn’t stand the SB collapsible brace. I’ve probably purchased 10-12 different SB braces over the last 3 years and this one is by far the worst. In fact, it’s about to go on eBay if anyone is interested lol. It’s wobbly when collapsed and extended. Needs a lot of improvement. The MPX “similar” brace is much better but, by no means perfect. But they both work in a similar manner. Can’t understand why this version is…A. Much more expensive. B. Not built to the same standard.
    With that being said, I’ve now converted back to the original version with an HB industries 6.84” angled hand guard with the side folding tailhook mod 1 attachment. Not only does it look better…but everything is “tight”, for lack of a better term.

    I was stationed at Rhein-Main (Frankfurt) Air Base from 1985 to 1991. I purchased a CZ-75 form the Rod and Gun Club. In 1990 I took with me to Saudi Arabia as my sidearm. Later, by Schwarzkkop’s General Order Number One (which among many other things directed no personal weapons) I had to swap it out for an issue M9 Beretta.

  11. avatar Docduracoat says:

    Why does anyone want this over the Scorpion pistol?
    It is almost the same size, even with the shorter barrel.
    I suppose you are to remove the fake suppressor and replace it with a real suppressor?
    Then you would have a suppressed micro that is the same length as the scorpion pistol
